Liverpool worked to revamp its midfielders, but Jordan Henderson and Fabinho left unexpectedly. The club is still searching for a new midfielder, as it took a lot of effort to secure a defensive midfielder.
Apart from that, they are also looking to strengthen their final line, as they are still concerned about their center backs other than Virgil van Dijk and Ibrahima Konate.
Dutch defender Mickey van de Ven, who moved to Tottenham, and others had been mentioned as candidates, but now Bayer Leverkusen defender Piero Hincapié’s name is being reported daily.
According to François Plateau (Sports Journalist), Liverpool are in the hunt as the deadline looms, and they are not sure if they will be able to get it done by the deadline. The report also says that a transfer fee of up to £40 million would be acceptable.
“Liverpool aim to acquire the services of Piero Hincapié this week, but faces a race against time. “
“It’s understood that Liverpool value the Ecuadorean at ~£40m.”

It’s understood that @LFC value the Ecuadorean at ~£40m.
There are completely different reports about the Ecuadorian center back, whose reputation is growing in the Bundesliga, with Xabi Alonso making him non-releasable, and some media outlets reporting that the transfer fee would have to be nearly double.
Despite the mixed information, it is no secret that Liverpool is in need of a center back. Will they be able to acquire a long-awaited left-handed center back during this summer…?
