Stoke want loan player in return for Shaqiri deal

  Stoke want loan player in return for Shaqiri deal Stoke are reportedly considering asking Liverpool for a player on loan in return as part of any deal to take Xherdan Shaqiri to Anfield. The Mirror reports that Gary Rowett is still looking to add to his squad this summer and could utilise Liverpool’s interest in the Swiss winger. Rowett will be in the market for a replacement for Shaqiri, which could see them try and bring in Harry Wilson, who is a target for a wealth of Championship clubs. The report does not state specifically who Stoke would be looking to land, but you can imagine Wilson is one of the names likely to be discussed. Other players who look set to leave Liverpool include the likes of Danny Ward, Ben Woodburn and Danny Ings, but it is unlikely the latter would want to drop into the Championship. Shaqiri is being heavily tipped to make a move to Anfield this summer with Jurgen Klopp keen to add depth to his squad.

Jurgen Klopp expects Danny Ward to challenge Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius and stake a claim for Liverpool's number one jersey in 2017-18, another sign that the 24-year-old will remain at Anfield beyond the summer rather than being dispatched for on another loan stint.

Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward could be in line for a promotion next season, report The Times. In front of him, a fascinating battle has played out, with Simon Mignolet finally losing his number one spot to While still a back-up role, as number two Ward at least has a chance of playing, being just one

Liverpool keeper Danny Ward will be given a chance to fight for the Number one spot according to the Liverpool Echo.

The Welsh keeper has been limited in his appearances for Liverpool. However, after impressing Jurgen Klopp in pre-season the former Wrexham man could be in line to make a push for the starting role.

The goalkeeper has reportedly stepped up his game in recent weeks at Melwood, potentially forcing his way into Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Ward has spent time away from Liverpool, joining Huddersfield in 2016/17 to help the Terriers gain promotion to the Premier League.

Danny Ward in talks over Leicester move

  Danny Ward in talks over Leicester move Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward is reportedly in talks over a deal to join Leicester this summer. Neil Jones of Goal reports that the Welshman has emerged as a transfer target for the Foxes with Roma looking to sign Kasper Schmeichel. In what Jones describes as a ‘goalkeeper-merry-go-round’, Roma are looking to replace Anfield-bound Alisson with Schmeichel. Alisson’s arrival casts further doubts over the amount playing time Ward would get at Anfield after failing to break into the squad last season. Schmeichel has emerged as a target for both Roma and Chelsea, with both sides looking for new goalkeepers this summer. Ward had been heavily linked with moves away from Anfield this summer and drew links to Norwich, who were said to be considering a loan swoop for the player. The young goalkeeper had been expected to feature for Liverpool against Blackburn tonight, but he is now being ruled out of the clash. The Welshman now looks set to get the opportunity to fight for regular first-team football in the Premier League at the King Power.

This is Anfield's Henry Jackson believes the pre-season preparations could become a final chance for Danny Ward to develop as a first -choice goalkeeper at Liverpool. Klopp needs to give Ward toa decent amount of playing time this summer before deciding whether he is worth being retained or not.

Should Liverpool give Danny Ward a chance in goal? Karius was beaten at his near post by Leroy Sane in the first half and went onto concede two more goals as Liverpool won a thriller 4-3.

This comes as more crticism comes Lorius Karius’ way, after making another mistake against Tranmere.

Ward on the other hand put in a great shift during the Reds two opening friendlies against Chester and Tranmere.

Liverpool travel to Bury on Saturday before traveling to Blackburn Rovers next week.

The Reds then fly of to the USA for their Summer tour.
