Liverpool acquired Argentine midfielder Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton soon after the Premier League ended, but they were unable to decide on a second signing to follow.
The good news came in a sudden and unexpected turn of events, as Liverpool seemed to have narrowed their focus to defensive midfielders such as Khéphren Thuram.
The club exercised the release clause in the contract of Hungarian midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai of RB Leipzig to secure the 22-year-old midfielder for €70m. The player arrived on Merseyside and went straight to a medical check.
According to Fabrizio Romano, an Italian journalist, most of the tests have been completed and an official announcement is as close as possible.

The Hungarian midfielder will have a busy few days ahead of him after his medical check, as he is still waiting to sign a contract, have a photo shoot, etc. He will be under the desired coach Jurgen Klopp’s instruction, and his motivation should be high.
The Hungarian midfielder, who has been highly regarded as a talent since he was a teenager, will finally get his first taste of the Premier League. According to David Ornstein of The Athletic, he is expected to sign a five-year contract, and there is “no time to wait” for an official announcement.
