‘I Think It Will Be This Week’: Fabrizio Romano Predicts Massive Week for Liverpool

Fabrizio Romano predicts a big week ahead for Liverpool, one that could significantly influence their future.

Liverpool have yet to make any significant moves in the transfer market, but there are substantial reasons for this delay: they’ve completely revamped the structure of their football operations. Arne Slot has taken over as the new manager, Richard Hughes is the new sporting director, and the team needs time to settle before making major decisions.

However, it appears that the time for action has arrived. According to Fabrizio Romano, this could be the week when Liverpool initiate some of their most important moves of the transfer window.

These moves won’t involve incoming players. Instead, this week might mark the beginning of serious negotiations with three of their star players regarding new contracts.

Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, and Trent Alexander-Arnold all have contracts expiring next summer. It’s crucial for Liverpool to secure new deals for them, with Trent Alexander-Arnold’s extension being particularly important.

“At the moment it’s still quiet,” Romano told The Debrief. This week with Arne Slot coming in at Liverpool and starting all the meetings with the directors they will start the real strategy and they will prepare for the summer transfer window and the contract situations to be clarified.

“At the moment, all these players are waiting to start conversations with Liverpool. I think it will be this week that they start having contact with the club to clarify their contract situation.

“At the moment, it’s really quiet. These players are not forcing to leave the club so far. Liverpool are waiting to have direct contact.”

It’s a massive week, if Romano’s predictions are accurate. Liverpool’s future plans could undergo a significant change if things don’t go as expected – but there is one player who is of utmost importance in this scenario.

Alexander-Arnold is not just one of the Reds’ top players; he represents their future. He is almost certainly poised to be the next club captain, and as a Scouser, he is the player the club hopes to build around for the long term.

Losing him – particularly on a free transfer next year – would be a devastating blow. Comparable situations include losing Steve McManaman to Real Madrid on a free transfer or Michael Owen to Real Madrid for £8 million (and Antonio Nunez).

It is therefore no surprise that Alexander-Arnold has been linked with major clubs.

Hopefully, Liverpool can secure his commitment soon and start planning a very promising future with him.
