Liverpool in talks to play at Tottenham’s new stadium: Why do Reds want London match?

The Reds are finalising their pre-season plans ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.

And three matches have already been lined up in the United States during July.

Confirmations of those games are still to come, including specific dates and venues.

But Liverpool’s pre-season schedule won’t be restricted to just the US as the club eye up another trip down to London.

Jurgen Klopp’s side played Barcelona at Wembley in a pre-season match two years ago.

And due to concert clashes at Anfield in late July, Liverpool are plotting a move down south again.

It is understood the Reds are considering playing at Tottenham’s new ground, which Spurs would be willing to facilitate.

The news surrounding Liverpool’s pre-season schedule comes as:

Daniel Levy wishes to maximise revenue from their new home, which is also poised to host two NFL fixtures in October.

At Anfield, the club wish to relay the pitch ahead of the new Premier League season after the stadium hosts concerts in July.

Liverpool are believed to be planning a friendly against Serie A giants Napoli, who were in their Champions League group earlier this term.

The date being eyed is July 28 – a Sunday – meaning Liverpool fans could travel down from Merseyside for the game technically being classed as their only home match in pre-season.

The Reds are in talks with Spurs but nothing is concrete yet, with Wembley and Dublin venues Liverpool have used before.

Should Liverpool strike a deal with Tottenham, it may not be the only game in London they play before the start of next season.

Klopp’s team could be in the Community Shield in early August too.

If they finish second in the table while City win the Premier League and FA Cup or if Liverpool clinch the title, Wembley will be their destination too for the 2019/20 season’s curtain raiser.
