Reds go head to head with Rafa

Liverpool and Newcastle look set to fight it out for the signature of Kieran Tierney.

Despite James Milner’s impressive performance at left-back this season, it looks like Alberto Moreno may be on his way in the summer and the Celtic man could well fill the gap.

Jurgen Klopp has been monitoring Tierney’s progress north of the border, but Newcastle’s promotion back to the Premier League has gifted manager Rafael Benitez a transfer kitty of £100m, according to reports.

Celtic, now managed by another former Reds boss in Brendan Rodgers, are unlikely to be able to prevent losing their promising youngster, but Liverpool won’t want to find themselves in a bidding war with the Magpies.
