Ahead of the 2022/2023 English Premier League season, Liverpool is reportedly seeking to sign Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic.
If things work out for the Reds, the American professional footballer would replace Sadio Mane at Liverpool.
Reporting via his microblogging platform on Sunday, Bild journalist Christian Falk said “TRUE @LFC is interested in Christian Pulisic (23) as a replacement for Sadio Mané @FCBayern @ChelseaFC.”
Naija News understands that Pulisic has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer.
Mane on the other hand has reportedly resolved to exit Anfield this season after failing to win the UEFA Champions League and also losing the Premier League title to Manchester City.
The Senegalese has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich, and Jurgen Klopp’s side wants Pulisic to take his place in the team.
Meanwhile, a new venue has been announced for the Community Shield match between English Premier League champions, Manchester City and rival Liverpool, Naija News learnt.
The UK Mirror reports that the match would now be played at the King Power Stadium.
The venue change was affected by the final of the Women’s Euro 2022 which would be played the following day at the Wembley stadium, the usual venue.
Naija News understands that the Community Shield tie had been scheduled for play on July 30, 2022.
The match would be played just a week before the commencement of the 2022/2023 Premier League season, while the final of Women Euros comes up on July 31.
The next Premier League season will kick off on 6 August.
