Liverpool eye Janmaat emergency?
Liverpool have been offered free agent Daryl Janmaat as emergency defensive cover following Joe Gomez’s knee surgery, according to teamTALK.

Gomez has been ruled out for the foreseeable future and Liverpool need reinforcements, and Gini Wijnaldum has given a glowing reference for the 31-year-old Janmaat.
Man United plan to sell Pogba next summer
Manchester United reportedly want to sell Paul Pogba during next summer’s transfer window.
Speculation over the French midfielder’s future has become almost a daily occurence once again of late following a disappointing start to the 2020/21 campaign that has seen him underperform and receive criticism for giving away multiple penalties.
Last month, United triggered a one-year extension in Pogba’s contract to keep him at Old Trafford until 2022.
However, according to journalist Alex Crook, who was speaking to talkSPORT, the club will look to cash in on Pogba after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came to the realisation that he could not play the 27-year-old and Bruno Fernandes together.
Pogba is expected to end up at Real Madrid, who have long since been linked with his signature.
