Friday 10th June: gossip and rumours

The Athletic: Nunez to Liverpool

Yesterday the rumour was that Liverpool and Manchester United were competing for Darwin Nunez signature. Today The Athletic are reporting that Liverpool have reached an agreement with the player.

FPL Comment: As reported yesterday Nunez scored 32 goals for Benfica in the 2021/22 season. Six of these goals came in the Champions League including a goal in each of the two quarter-final matches against Liverpool. The forward could be a fantastic asset to FPL managers if he arrives at Anfield.

Football Insider: West Ham keen on Keane

The Football Insider are reporting that West Ham are interested in signing  Michael Keane from Everton. This come after Everton were rumoured to have won the race to sign James Tarkowski from relegated Burnley on a free transfer.

FPLComment: The arrival of Tarkowski if this transfer happens would likely lead to changes in the Everton defence. A move away for one of their other central defenders makes sense. Keane had a good attacking record of the Everton defenders last season. Keane returned five attacking returns last season, more than any other Everton defender.

The Sun and The Mirror: Richarlison asks to leave

Newspapers The Sun and Then Mirror are reporting that Everton forward Richarlison has told the club that he would like to leave this summer.

The Mirror reports that Chelsea are one of three clubs that he would like to join. They do also suggest that a move outside the Premier League to PSG or Real Madrid would appeal to the forward.

FPL Comment: Richarlison was Everton’s highest points scorer this season with 125 FPL points. However, across the forwards in the game he was ranked ninth. Richarlison and Everton struggled for goals and creativity in 2021/22, at a side full of creative midfielders like Chelsea he could flourish.
