James Pearce issues massive Sven Botman update

Posted by

Reputable Liverpool FC journalist James Pearce has provided an update on the Reds’ apparent pursuit of Lille defender Sven Botman.

The reporter claims there is nothing to the links between the Dutchman and the Premier League champions, citing his own sources.

Speaking on The Athletic’s Red Agenda podcast, Pearce said he doesn’t ‘go along’ with the idea that Botman could be a smokescreen and has been told a move for the Lille man ‘is not a possibility’ this winter.

This news will certainly not come as a welcome update for Liverpool fans, with so many excited by the rumours linking the Lille man to a move to Anfield this winter.

Although it should be noted that Pearce also denied the Thiago rumours up until two days before the signing was made official.

That’s not a slight at the man, by the way – you can only report what you’ve been told on good authority, but it seems his sources have fed him lines in the past.

That being said, there is arguably no better word to go off than Pearce’s when it comes to Liverpool so we’ll continue to view the Botman rumours with scepticism.

  1. I think his best source these days is a bloke in the Golden Dragon on Arkles Lane who drinks in the Sandon and occasionally the Harry.

  2. FSG and Klopp must feel the heat now,,they need to act very fast as soon as possible to solve the defence problems,,,turning all reliable midfielders to defence will not work rather it will destroy and kill the team’s performance… Why are they so recurrent like as if Liverpool is the only team that was affected by the pandemic…they must start buying replacements now not do the impossible tactics of shifting one to another…buy replacements plz

  3. FSG is ALWAYS reluctant to buy. Only in times of CRISIS they do act. This means there is never a plan to get the best players. Only money counts. They only buy cheap. Lucky were they with Robertson. But Minamino, Tsimikas, or even Thiago.
