As we hurdle towards the official first day of Arne Slot on the job followed by two huge international tournaments, the news cycle never slows down around Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp might not be going off into the distance completely as he announced a new ambassador role for himself going forward. A handful of Liverpool players were confirmed for their nation's final Euro squad and as always, there is transfer news to follow up on.

Klopp will be an ambassador of the LFC Foundation

Klopp spoke for an hour during a Q&A at the M&S Bank Arena where he announced his new role with the foundation.

At one point, he was brought to tears as the 10,000+ fans in attendance serenaded him and showed as much love as they could. He reiterated his stance on the reasons for his departure from the Anfield touchline before reflecting on the outpouring of love he has received.

"It is incredible, absolutely incredible, because obviously over the years we learned a lot about each other, but I’m still German." He continued; “I was nine years in England, we don’t do these kinds of things [in Germany], to get the key to the city, I’m not sure in Germany what you have to do for that, but it’s not just coaching the football team."

It is good to know we will still see Jurgen on occasion and his role with the foundation shows how much he truly does love the club and city, as if we needed anymore proof.

Liverpool trio named in Netherlands final Euro 2024 squad

Virgil van Dijk, Cody Gakpo and Ryan Gravenberch will be playing for a European Championship with their national team this summer as they were all part of the final squad announced for the event.

Van Dijk as the Captain of his country is probably the least surprising inclusion in the entire squad while Gakpo has been a focal point in the Dutch attack for a few years now.

The inclusion of Gravenberch though is refreshing and nice to see as he ended the season on an upswing and seems to have done enough to show his value. He might not be an entrenched starter, but I expect him to see the field at least a few times at worst.

Liverpool fans will surely have a vested interest in the Oranje as they will oddly be powered by Reds going forward.

Former Red Mark Lawrenson wants Liverpool to cash in on Mohamed Salah if possible

While it has been reported that Salah is expected to stay at Anfield for this coming season, one former Red wants the club to accept an offer if it comes in.

Speaking to Best Online Poker Sites he said:

"If Liverpool could get £100m for him from the Saudi Pro League, I think I would take it considering the circumstances. Salah’s been absolutely brilliant for Liverpool over the years, but he looks like he might need a change of club and I personally wouldn’t get in the way of that out of respect for him."

While it would probably make a lot of financial sense if this situation arose, Salah is still the best player at the club and his move would not be sanctioned if a surefire replacement is not also lined up.

It's entirely possible that under Arne Slot he finds a new gear and attacks the 2024-25 season with a fresh perspective. If he does, his performances would outweigh any fee he would command this summer.
