Liverpool is currently in the midst of a generational change in its midfield, and is actively searching for young and talented players in the transfer market. One of the players that they are actively pursuing is Khéphren Thuram, who has shown great potential in his performances. The club is looking for opportunities to acquire him, in hopes of adding to their already impressive midfield.
In addition to the midfield, Liverpool is also keen on strengthening their backline with a focus on left-handed players. One of the players they have reportedly shown great interest in is 22-year-old Wolfsburg defender Mickey van de Ven.
Liverpool has already contacted his agent, and the player has not ruled out the possibility of a move. However, the club faces competition from Tottenham Hotspur, who have also added him to their shortlist, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Tottenham is looking to make a fresh start with new coach Ange Postecoglou. They has acquired Italian goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario from Empoli to replace former French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who has been the club’s defensive backbone for many years.
Liverpool’s priority is to acquire a midfielder and will not make a move for a center back at this time. In the meantime.
Would Spurs be willing to add a Dutch U-21 defender to their squad?
