The title race is out of frame for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp in England. Premier League Champions are far away from the dominant side of Pep Guardiola. Also, they are struggling to stay in the top four due to tough challenges from other sides.
But, the Reds are not out of the scene and a title is still possible for them. The continental clash is into the semi-final actions and the glorious Real Madrid are the opponent for the Reds.
Liverpool won their last three games against RB Leipzig, Wolves, and Arsenal. This influenced the mood of the team as they can go for the European clash with much confidence. The Easter day fixture at Emirates was a reflection of their Champions performance.
The double brace from Diogo Jota and a goal from Mohammed Salah sealed the 3-0 in favor of the visitors. The front three of Liverpool were furious with the ball and Klopp laughed with great content after the match.
But, the manager caught in a suspicious frame with Arsenal midfielder Martin Odegaard. The Norwegian is a Los Blancos who is on loan at North London. The Norwegian has been impressive with Gunners and featuring major games under Mikel Arteta.
Klopp and Odegaard frame:
Martin Odegaard started in the central midfielder role on Saturday. He was keen to threaten the opposition and Jurgen Klopp fell for him after the match. The German head coach had a serious chat with the player after the ninety minutes.
Odegaard is supposed to return to Madrid this summer to complete his remaining two years in the contract. He was considered as Madrid’s future prospect to replace the currently experienced midfield.
There are reports from London speculating Arsenal’s bargain for the 22-year-old this summer. Arteta would like to have the service of Odegaard for the future of Arsenal. Madrid leaves a vague idea on the future of the player as per the reports.
If Madrid open up a window for sale, Premier League sides can offer a deal for the midfielder. Odegaard can rule any elite side of England. The Liverpool outfit is more attractive for the player as per current conditions.
Although, the Champions League stage would be a point of concern for a talent of such potential. The competition within the squad is tough in Anfield for Odegaard. But, he can have a good show time in Merseyside.
The summer transfer window has already booked some defensive requirements from the Reds. Martin Odegaard can also decorate the role of a holding midfielder. In Spain, he was valued as the future replacement of Casemiro in the future of Real Madrid.
Liverpool can work the case out forward. But, it will cost a lot for them. Also, the move from North London should be watched. Arsenal probably try for a loan extension and a permanent deal is complex for them at this condition.
