A number of midfielders left the team as their contracts expired, including James Milner. In addition, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho have sought new homes in Saudi Arabia, and Liverpool is in urgent need of midfielders in addition to Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai, who were already signed.
Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia and Fluminense midfielder Andre are said to be the spearheads, and as for the Belgian midfielder, two offers have been rejected. Other interest has also been shown in acquiring a left-handed center back.
Former Spanish international Luis Garcia, who once played for Liverpool and was instrumental in winning the Champions League, remained positive when asked if his old club would qualify for the CL in the new season, but responded that reinforcements at right back and in the bottom of midfield were inevitable.
“Yes I do, I think with the new replacements in the middle,”
“At the back I think we still need someone in that right-back position but having Darwin Nunez on form, Luis Diaz on form Jota, Gakpo I think that we have enough firepower up front to score goals.”
“I think that we’re going to miss Fabinho definitely, we need to seal that place, I don’t say that Curtis Jones can’t do a great job right there but I think that we need someone who can help the defenders to maintain, to keep the balance to the team in transition.”ESPN FC
