Slick Liverpool smash five past Napoli

Share

The £65million Brazil goalkeeper played the full 90 minutes with no mishaps, as James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum, Mohamed Salah, Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno were all on target for Jurgen Klopp's side.

Following the 5-0 win over Napoli in Dublin, the German joked that he didn't want to ruin deadline day for fans by not trying to sign anyone else.

"Joel, we'll have to see", Klopp said, according to the Liverpool Echo.

"I can not kill your D-day (Sky Sports Deadline Day) show, people sit there in front of the television all day waiting", he added.

"He played in Brazil and Portugal, then was initially kept out of the Roma team by Wojciech Szczesny, who found English football hard at Arsenal, so he's not coming with 300-400 games at the highest level under his belt and, despite the fee, there has to be a question mark against him".

After Sunday's clash with fellow big spenders West Ham, Klopp's side then face Crystal Palace in London on August 20 and Brighton at Anfield five days later.

Today, Liverpool could finally sign Nabil Fekir...

But any hopes of Liverpool making a last-minute bid have been dashed as L'Equipe add that they are unwilling to renew their interest in the France worldwide.

France Football also add Chelsea have the means to convince Fekir his future lies at Stamford Bridge.

Before the World Cup, it looked certain that Fekir would join Liverpool, in fact, he even recorded an interview with LFCTV and he had pictures taken where he was wearing the Liverpool shirt.
