Liverpool’s renewal of its midfield squad, which opened with the acquisition of Argentine midfielder Alexis Mac Allister, is moving aggressively toward a second reinforcement, with daily news reports on the progress of the targeted players.
Khéphren Thuram, Manu Koné and Gabri Veiga are realistic targets, and depending on discussions with Bayern, Ryan Gravenberch is also a priority target.
While the above four players are said to be the most likely midfielders at the moment, there is also interest in a player who recently made his debut for England against Malta.
According to Ekrem Konur, a freelance journalist, Liverpool are interested in Crystal Palace midfielder Eberechi Eze and plan to move soon to check on the player’s situation.
The 24-year-old midfielder, who moved to Crystal Palace from QPR in the summer of 2020, was unable to play in many games last season due to injury and fitness issues, but has been a regular since the start of this season.
Although he was dropped from the starting lineup midway through the season due to the team’s poor performance, he played a central role in the club’s resurgence under Roy Hodgson.
With 10 goals and 4 assists in 40 games, it is no wonder that big clubs are interested in him. And with the loss of three experienced midfielders, including Naby Keita, James Milner, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, it is only natural that players who have proven themselves in the Premier League will be targets.
However, it should not come to the point of full-fledged interest at the moment. We are not sure how much we can believe the source, and it seems safe to recognize it when it is reported by more credible journalists and media.
In any case, I would like to see Eze playing at Anfield… Will it…?
