Liverpool scouting KV Oostende midfielder Kenny Rocha Santos

Published

on


Jurgen Klopp

Reports coming out of the Netherlands have credited Liverpool with an interest in Kenny Rocha Santos.

Who is Kenny Rocha Santos?

Kenny Rocha Santos is currently plying his trade in Belgium with KV Oostende.

Santos would move to Oostende in July of 2021, departing AS Nancy on a free transfer.

Santos had previously scored six and assisted nine in 66 outings for Nancy across all competitions

Since moving to Belgium, the 22-year-old has featured on 23 occasions for Oostende. In said games he has provided three assists.

Santos is a central midfielder by trade, but he can also play as an attacking mid, defensive mid and on the right side of midfield.

Santos has also featured on 11 occasions for Cape Verde, with his latest outings coming on January 9th in the African Cup of Nations as his side picked up a 1-0 win over Ethiopia.

Liverpool eyeing Kenny Rocha Santos

Now, as mentioned above, Santos is seemingly being tracked by Premier League giants, Liverpool.

According to teamTALK citing Dutch outlet Voetbal Flitsen, Liverpool have been scouting Santos and have subsequently been impressed by the midfielder.

It is added that the Reds are gearing up for January and summer transfer windows where they will invest in their squad, with midfield said to be a key area.

Given the ages of Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Thiago, it would make sense for Liverpool to begin planning for the future.

But is Santos the man to do that with? Jurgen Klopp’s side already have several young, promising central midfielders on their books in the form of Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott.

So, with at least two of the three positions seemingly already sorted, would Liverpool not be better served bringing in a big name to replace someone like Fabinho in the future?

Tottenham handed transfer boost as forward free to leave plus latest on Luis Diaz and Adama Traore

Tottenham handed transfer boost as forward free to leave plus latest on Luis Diaz and Adama Traore

Tottenham have been handed a transfer boost as it has emerged that one of their mooted targets is free to leave on loan this January.

As per Serie A expert Romeo Agresti, Juventus could yet allow Dejan Kulusevski to leave on loan this transfer window, with the Old Lady closing in on a deal for Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic.

‘Keep an eye on his situation and on a possible end-of-market loan’, Agresti wrote on Twitter, and with Tottenham short on the cash front, a loan deal could be perfect for them given their Serie A affiliation.

The Swede would be a good alternative to Harry Kane short-term and offer good rotation options in the front-line, with Steven Bergwijn still subject to Ajax interest despite his good form.

The latest on Adama and Luis Diaz

Elsewhere, Luis Diaz and Adama Traore are two names that have been linked with a move to north London.

And, at present, the deal for Diaz seems complicated, with Spurs not offering a fee deemed acceptable by Porto.

Perhaps somewhat worryingly, however, it seems as though there is now more optimism over this deal than that for Adama Traore, which has been complicated by Barcelona interest in the Spaniard.

With Tottenham keen on additions, something will have to give.

Arsenal falling away from move for Juventus midfielder Arthur amid January frustrations

Arsenal falling away from move for Juventus midfielder Arthur amid January frustrations

The January window continues to frustrate many in the Arsenal fanbase and, presumably, also the club hierarchy as a deal for Juventus midfielder Arthur could now be off.

As first reported by transfer insider Fabrizio Romano, the situation between all parties had not changed.

Arsenal are only prepared to commit to a six-month loan according to Romano but La Vecchia Signora prefers an 18-month deal which will include 100% of the Brazilian’s salary guaranteed by the Gunners.

David Ornstein shed additional light on the situation soon after for The Athletic. According to his information, Arsenal technical director Edu eventually agreed to an 18-month loan deal which would include a buy option for a fee in the region of €40million; a structure that Juventus sporting director Federico Cherubini was happy to agree to.

But that deal and its structure have since been vetoed by the Arsenal hierarchy, in other words, one of Richard Garlick, Josh Kroenke, and Stan Kroenke. If another more suitable agreement cannot be struck, the club could well fail in its attempt to provide Mikel Arteta with vital midfield reinforcements before the January window closes.

Arsenal turn to fresh names after transfer setbacks

With six days left in the January window, Arsenal is in need of reinforcement not just in the center of the park but also in the number 9 role as the futures of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, and Eddie Nketiah seem set in stone.

Now, the club could be set to turn to SSC Napoli striker Victor Osimhen after missing out on number-one target Dušan Vlahović who looks set to complete his expected move to Serie A giants Juventus.

Additionally, the club’s link with interest in Olympique Lyonnais midfield standout Bruno Guimarães also looks to be erased after reports suggest the Brazilian international is on course to make a shock move to cash-loaded Newcastle.

As such, Arsenal may well turn to Aston Villa holding midfielder Douglas Luiz in the wake of the Villains thus far not offering a contract extension at Villa Park.

While it may not be entirely evident what player is now the prime January target for the Gunners, players are certainly required if Arteta is to manufacture a proper run at the top four.

Watford complete first signing under new manager Roy Hodgson

Watford complete first signing under new manager Roy Hodgson

Watford have completed their fourth signing of the January transfer window, and their first under new manager Roy Hodgson, who was announced as taking over from Claudio Ranieri on Tuesday.

This comes in the shape of Bourdeaux winger Samuel Kalu, who has joined the Hornets on a deal until 2025 for an undisclosed fee.

The Nigerian winger follows Hassane Kamara in making the move from Ligue 1 to Watford this January, while the club have also added Samir and Eyo Kayembe to their ranks in a busy January window that has been overseen by those in the club hierarchy.

A Watford statement read:

‘Watford FC is delighted to announce the signing of Nigerian international winger Samuel Kalu on a deal until June 2025 from French club FC Girondins de Bordeaux.

The fourth new signing of the January window, Kalu joins full-back Hassane Kamara, central defender Samir and midfielder Edo Kayembe at Vicarage Road.

The 24-year-old signs for the Hornets following three-and-a-half successful years in France’s top tier, where he scored nine goals.

Capable of playing on either flank, Kalu is a versatile option in a competitive squad, typically operating on the right wing.

The quick-footed attacker first played for Slovakian side AS Trenčín after moving to Europe from his native Nigeria, and earned a switch to Belgian giants KAA Gent in 2017 following impressive performances. He then joined Bordeaux in August 2018, where he has since made 86 appearances for Les Girondins.’

What next for Watford?

Watford still face a race to stay in the top flight, currently sitting in the relegation zone and set to compete with newly minted Newcastle United to avoid the drop.

Onto their third manager of the season already, it needs to be a case of third time lucky to prevent them slipping into the Championship.
