Liverpool is moving vigorously in the transfer market, with a renewal of its midfielders a top priority. Since welcoming Alexis Mac Allister to the team, a second signing has not followed, but negotiations for a young midfield player with European experience are underway.
Meanwhile, Liverpool, who are also targeting a left-handed center back, are approaching Dutch U-21 defender Mickey van de Ven, who is also targeted by Tottenham. Liverpool, on the other hand, are also looking to sign him, who was head of reinforcements at Wolfsburg until this January, using the contacts of new sporting director Jörg Schmatke.
According to Eduardo Burgos of the Spanish newspaper AS, in addition to Van de Ven, the club is also in close proximity to Sporting defender Gonzalo Inácio, with three other Premier League clubs also interested.
“Gonçalo Inácio’s future in Portugal seems to be coming to an end. As AS learned, three Premier League teams would be behind the hiring of the young defender…”
“Although Liverpool showed interest in the left-sided player in the last transfer market, Jürgen Klopp’s team would try again to close his signing this summer.”
However, the midfielder is the first priority for Liverpool and a move for him is not likely right now, as the club will only make a move if there is time and budget to do so.
The center back, who has made 122 appearances for Sporting and made his debut for Portugal in March 2023, is on the market, but will he leave his home country this summer and land in England?
