Liverpool has been working to strengthen its midfielders this summer in the transfer market. The first signing is Alexis Mac Allister, the Argentine midfielder who helped Brighton to a sixth place finish in the Premier League. They have acquired a versatile midfielder who can play in a variety of midfield positions.
Young midfielders such as Khéphren Thuram and Gabri Veiga continued to be reported as candidates, but were not heard from for about a month; the U-21 European Championship 2023 was seen as an influence, but in a sudden turn of events, Liverpool activated RB Leipzig midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai’s release clause to acquire the midfielder.
Although his name was on the shortlist, Newcastle were very interested at the time, and just when it seemed unlikely that he would play at Anfield.
The Hungarian midfielder also recalled the moment and said that he immediately decided to sacrifice a year without playing in the Champions League.
“As soon as I heard that it was a serious matter, I didn’t think about the Champions League. I will gladly sacrifice a year,”
“Instead, I will try to win the Europa League with Liverpool because that is the goal.”Nemzeti Sport
The goal is high: winning the Europa League. While in Germany, the Bundesliga was out of reach, but he achieved the top of the German Cup two years in a row. With Red Bull Salzburg, he won the domestic league for four consecutive seasons and lifted the cup trophy three times.
Can the 22-year-old Hungarian gem, who has been blessed with numerous titles, be good enough to lead Liverpool to the top of the Premier League for the first time at Anfield?
