West Ham told to meet Gomez's release clause

  West Ham told to meet Gomez's release clause West Ham have been told that they will need to meet Maxi Gomez’s release clause if they want to sign the striker this summer. The Mirror reports that West Ham’s bid in the region of £27 million was rejected by Celta Vigo.

Klopp delivers serious warning to his Liverpool squad .
Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has sent a warning to his squad in the early days of the new season. With a deep squad, many players will be hoping to make their mark on the Reds’ campaign – and as a result, there will be those who miss out. The German doesn’t want to hear complaining from those that do, however. The Express report Klopp as saying: “Whatever happens on August 31, it is clear that is the squad for the next four months until January…but I cannot make people happy,” “Who cannot be happy being part of the squad at Liverpool, I cannot help.” “If someone has a problem with it, he will have a problem with me because he does not respect the situation.” Injuries seemed to sweep through Liverpool’s team down the stretch last year, and ailments have already started plaguing the team in the centre of defence. Subsequently, it seems those that are fortunate with health will get a chance this season. Klopp went on to say: “What I can do is say everyone who trains on his highest level has a big chance to be an important part of the team, to stay in the team and all these things. That makes us happy.” Liverpool travel to Crystal Palace on Monday night for their first away game of the Premier League season, where they will try to kick on from Sunday’s 4-0 victory against West Ham.
