The latest news as Liverpool’s players face their last round of international fixtures until March.

 

Andre to Fulham done in ‘coming days’

For a long time it looked like Andre would become a Liverpool player in January, however, he now looks most likely to join Fulham.

Journalist Jorge Nicola, with quotes via Sport Witness, reports that Fulham are now favourites to sign him, with Fluminense ‘pleased’ by a £27 million offer.

The reporter even said the deal could be done in ‘the coming days’ as the player ‘likes the project’ at Fulham.

We know other clubs, including Liverpool, are interested, and Nicola did add that there is still the potential for bigger bids to come in for the Brazilian.

Videos of the day and match of the night

Liverpool’s 1977 European Cup win at the Stadio Olimpico was memorable for a whole host of reasons. Journalist John Keith recalled the night in Rome.

Make sure you also see this video of Dominik Szoboszlai celebrating with Hungary supporters after reaching the 2024 European Championships.

Match of the night is North Macedonia vs. England at 7.45pm (GMT).

Trent Alexander-Arnold played in midfield for England’s last game, so it could be another chance to see him feature in that position again, with the match on Channel 4.

Mind, the other group game, where a win for Ukraine would see them qualify at Italy’s expense, is far more competitive and interesting.
