Liverpool has signed Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai, but they will not stop their moves in the transfer market. Following the acquisition of the Argentine international, who can play both offensively and defensively, and a midfielder with a heavy emphasis on attack, the club is keen to secure a physically strong defensive midfielder.
The current candidates are Nice midfielder Khéphren Thuram and Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia. The French U-21 midfielder, who is 1.92 meters tall and has the same strength but can face the front line, is considered a top priority, and Liverpool is likely to accelerate its move.
Rudi Galetti, an Italian journalist, reported that Liverpool is ready to speed up negotiations to close the gap with Nice, anticipating the possibility of Newcastle entering the fray.

The probability of a third midfielder addition this summer being announced soon is increasing, and the midfield’s run and decline, which was a concern last season, is likely to be resolved quickly.
Since there are many new players, they will have to get used to Liverpool’s tactics, etc., and whether or not they can share a common understanding in the pre-season will determine whether or not they can get off to a good start from the start of the season.
Will Liverpool be able to secure an ideal midfielder and successfully replace the main midfielders?
