Tuesday’s dose of Liverpool news includes a surprise contender for a Liverpool target and a return to the field for a young loanee.
Andre linked to Fulham
We didn’t see that one coming, either!
Fulham have emerged as a surprise suitor for Fluminense midfielder Andre, despite ongoing reports linking him with a move to Anfield.
The Copa Libertadores winner was heavily touted as a No. 6 option for the Reds throughout the summer but the move was hampered by his side’s progress in the aforementioned competition.
Andre remains on Liverpool’s radar for a January move if recent reports are to be believed, but Craven Cottage has also been put forward as a potential destination.
There is no doubt that the Reds have more pulling power than Marco Silva’s side, but it appears we may have some competition if we are to make another approach in the upcoming window.

It feels a somewhat hypocritical statement from Mikel Arteta, but does he have a point?
Before that, Newcastle travel to Klopp’s old side Dortmund, with Group F still very much in the balance.
TNT Sports 1 is the place to be for that one, with the game getting underway at the slightly earlier than usual time of 5.45pm (GMT).
