Liverpool’s young midfielder Ovie Ejaria turned down a move to French giants Paris Saint-Germain and chose to stay at the Anfield club in 2015, according to a report on This Is Anfield.

French powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain were interested in signing the central midfielder a year after he joined Liverpool from Premier League rivals Arsenal, but he snubbed their advances as he wanted to break into the first team at the Merseyside club.

Tottenham linked with move for Liverpool target Mariano

  Tottenham linked with move for Liverpool target Mariano According to the Mirror, Tottenham are amongst a host of clubs interested in signing reported Liverpool target Mariano Diaz from Real Madrid. Diaz has come through the ranks at the Bernabeu and has been promoted into the first-team in recent seasons, scoring five goals in 14 senior appearances last term. However, the 23-year-old is eager to start playing regular first-team football and with the big names in place at Madrid, he’ll likely have to move on in order to secure it. Celtic, Tottenham, Lazio, Real Betis and Malaga are all also interested in the Spanish-born Dominican Republic international forward. Diaz has 32 goals in 43 appearances for the Real Madrid Castilla side and is believed to be open to a move to the Premier League should it arise. Liverpool failed with two loan bids for the striker during the January window according to Spanish publication AS, and Diaz turned down 10 offers during the same window in order to stay put at the club. The Reds are yet to renew their interest in Mariano this summer, but with the future of Daniel Sturridge in doubt, should he leave the club they could revive a bid to sign Mariano providing Tottenham don’t beat them to it.

“We made an approach for Ovie two years ago – he didn’t want to leave England,” a source close to PSG revealed.

Ejaria was part of the England U20 side which won the World Cup this year and is one of Liverpool’s finest young talents and to see that they are determined to fight for a spot in the team must be extremely pleasing for Klopp and for the fans.

Ejaria is a confident and skilful midfielder and has all the tools to become a fantastic player and it looks like Klopp is ready to give him his opportunity to step up.

Liverpool target Ryan Sessegnon signs new Fulham contract .
Ryan Sessegnon has turned down the opportunity to join either Liverpool or Tottenham by agreeing to sign a new three-year contract at Fulham. According to a report from John Cross of the Mirror, the 17-year-old has decided to stay at Craven Cottage as he wants to play regular first-team football and he was unsure if he’d be offered that by moving to a top Premier League side. Tottenham were apparently leading the race to sign the full-back after it was reported that Liverpool had decided to pursue other targets as they believed he wanted to stay in London. Therefore the news he’s decided to stay at Fulham could be good for the Reds as they still have the opportunity to sign him in the future, which they would have been unable to do had he joined Spurs. Many Liverpool fans were upset when it was reported that Sessegnon was likely to go to Tottenham as many remember the Dele Alli saga and how that has ended up, with Spurs having one of the country’s best midfield targets at Liverpool’s expense.
