Here is your Liverpool digest on Wednesday, May 11.
Haaland’s signing not the end
Man City failed to sign Harry Kane last summer but this year it looks like they have got their man.
Pep Guardiola’s side are on the verge of completing a deal for Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. The Norwegian has been in high demand for a number of seasons with clubs all over Europe lining up for his signature, with the Premier League side winning out in the end.
With the Citizens adding Haaland to their ranks, there is a belief among football fans and media that City will be unstoppable given the level they have played at this season without a recognized striker in their ranks. However, they have still managed 89 goals in the league alone.
Haaland’s signing may signal a return to the days where City could rely on a striker to find the back of the net 20 times in the league but there’s no guarantee he settles in England and his signing shouldn’t end Liverpool’s chances of domestic silverware next season or beyond.

Mane wanted in Spain
Liverpool are reportedly ‘on the verge’ of striking a deal for Aberdeen right-back Calvin Ramsay, in a deal that could rise to £6million with add-ons included.
The report adds that the Scottish Premiership side are ‘resigned’ to losing their young star, who is also being chased by Leeds United and several other sides in England and in Italy. Leeds United made an attempt to sign the Scot during the January transfer window, though were unsuccessful in their efforts.
Ramsay would offer a possible rotation option for Trent Alexander-Arnold and could spell the end of Neco Williams’ time at the club, despite making a positive impression while on loan at Fulham.
