Liverpool’s search for a midfielder has been a journey that has been drawn to the final stages of the transfer window. They are looking for the last piece of the puzzle to join new midfielders Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, and Wataru Endo, and are rumored to be interested in European players.
In addition to Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch and Crystal Palace midfielder Cheick Doucouré, names such as Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi have been mentioned in the media here.
According to Alex Crook of talkSPORT, the possibility of acquiring Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips has not disappeared, and it all depends on the departure of Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes, whom the club is targeting.
“Yeah, Kalvin Phillips is a name that has been mentioned to me in the last couple of weeks as someone that Klopp is really interested in. It might be possibly that Manchester City would let them go on loan. I guess that might depend on if City can get the Matheus Nunes deal over the line. Ryan Gravenberch as well, I think the interest is genuine. They probably are still one midfielder light. I think that’s the priority.”GIVEMESPORT
At the Etihad Stadium, he has been warming the bench for some time now, unable to get past the big wall of Spanish midfielder Rodri. He needs to play regularly in the Premier League to regain his place in the England national team.
Liverpool, without an assured starter at the bottom of midfield, may be the ideal club for him. However, Manchester City does not have enough subs either, and it seems unlikely that they will release him this summer, even if it is on a loan transfer.
