'Devastated' – Liverpool fans are saying the same thing about Salah ahead of Roma clash

Following a football club around the globe is an expensive hobby, and Liverpool fans will certainly be thinking that this week as they make plans for a trip to Italy.

On May 2, the club’s travelling supporters will flock to the Stadio Olimpico for a crucial Champions League semi-final tie against Roma.

The atmosphere will either be jovial, tense or miserable depending on the outcome of the first leg at Anfield, which will be staged next Tuesday.

In order for a fan to grab a seat at the Italian ground, they will have to pay £73 each, according to Liverpool Echo journalist James Pearce.

The hike in price compared to the group fixture against Chelsea has been met with some frustration from fans, but many think that the increase is down to the fact that the May clash is a semi-final.

Others opted to poke fun at the situation by claiming that Roma have made the tickets more expensive because Liverpool swiped their star player Mohamed Salah last summer for a reported £35m fee.

Liverpool fans, who are keen for the club to sign Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele this summer, have a reason to be optimistic heading into the semi-final due to the fact that they are the only team in the competition that have not suffered a defeat.

The Reds overcame Manchester City 5-1 in the quarter-finals to reach the last four.

Eagle-eyed Liverpool fans spot transfer hint on social media

Philippe Coutinho dominated Liverpool’s transfer window last summer due to the will-he-won’t-he leave saga.

In the end, the Brazilian got his wish to join Barcelona in January, and now attention has switched to the future of Emre Can.

The Germany international’s current contract expires at the end of the season and he is yet to sign fresh terms.

Liverpool fans have gone back and forth with their views on Can’s situation, but the media have already begun suggesting that the Merseyside outfit are hunting for replacements.

According to the Daily Star, Napoli midfielder Jorginho is one of Jurgen Klopp’s top targets for the summer window.

The report, which was published in March, claimed that the Reds hope to seal a deal for around £25m, but they face competition from Manchester United and Manchester City.

With the transfer window just a matter of months away from opening, rumours are beginning to do the rounds.

Some eagle-eyed Liverpool fans recently spotted on Instagram that Jorginho had liked a post from lfcvids8 claiming that the midfielder would be a good addition to Klopp’s team.

Liverpool fans have now had their say.

Tottenham would be taking big risk signing £18m-rated star – agree?

Tottenham Hotspur may need to strengthen their midfield this summer as the future of Mousa Dembele remains uncertain.

According to The Mirror, the North London outfit are willing to listen to offers for the Belgian international, despite the fact that he has been an influential figure in Mauricio Pochettino’s team this season.

Tottenham fans have been vocal in their praise for Dembele, but it seems unlikely that the 30-year-old will be gracing the pitch at the club’s new stadium in the 2018-19 campaign.

With that in mind, it is time to look at potential alternatives, and one name that has been doing the rounds in the media is Bryan Cristante.

The 23-year-old currently plies his trade at Serie A side Atalanta, where he is based for the season on loan from Benfica.

The midfielder has made 30 appearances in Italy’s top flight and he has found the back of the net eight occasions in that period.

Despite his young age, Cristante has won two Primeira Liga titles, as well as the Portuguese League Cup twice.

The Mirror claims that the midfielder is one of the players being targeted by the North London outfit, while Barcelona’s Andre Gomes is also an option.

Cristante has shown versatility this season in that he can play in an attacking midfield role as well as more centrally.

While playing further up the field, the Italian has contributed with five goes, and from the middle of the park he has scored six.

With all that being said, do you think that Tottenham should make a move for Cristante this summer?

Liverpool fans get ideal draw but some reactions may surprise you

Not many would have predicted that Liverpool would be fighting for a place in the Champions League final, least of all their own fans.

Jurgen Klopp’s side overcame Porto and Manchester City after coming through the group phase without a single defeat to their name.

The Reds put themselves in the hat for the semi-final draw thanks to a 5-1 aggregate triumph over Premier League champions elect Man City.

Mohamed Salah, who is in a race for the Premier League Golden Boot against Harry Kane, proved to be pivotal in the outcome of the contest as he opened the scoring in Liverpool’s 3-0 triumph in the first leg at Anfield.

At the Etihad Stadium, the Egyptian international was the difference again as he netted an audacious chip to give the Merseyside outfit a crucial away goal.

Klopp’s men had to endure plenty of pressure from City in the first half, but they weathered the storm and got the result that they needed to progress.

The club were handed a slice of luck in the semi-final draw as they managed to avoid Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

Instead, the English club will take on Italian outfit Roma, who stunned everyone by coming from 4-1 down to knock out Barcelona in the quarter-finals.

The first leg will be held at Anfield on April 24, with the return fixture at the Stadio Olimpico on May 2.

Liverpool fans have been tweeting their reactions to the draw.
