Liverpool’s efforts to revamp their midfielders this summer have been a generational change and upgrade, with the addition of four players, including Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo, and Ryan Gravenberch.
However, with the expected departure of former Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara next summer, the team may need to improve its midfield depth.
However, the team has a ready-made squad, and experienced players over 30 years old or promising midfielders are the candidates.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Liverpool is interested in Belgium U-21 midfielder Arthur Vermeeren, who plays for Royal Antwerp, and Manchester United and Ajax are also tracking his movements.
Despite being 18 years old, Vermaelen has been a regular since the middle of last season. After making 20 appearances in the Jupiler Pro League, he became a force to be reckoned with in Europe.
This season, he has been selected for the starting lineup from the beginning of the season, and has also been called up to the Belgium national team’s U-21 squad.
Barcelona is leading the race for the player, and the club’s sporting director is in talks with the player to move to Spain, according to the newspaper.
Whether Liverpool is really pursuing the 18-year-old midfielder remains to be seen, but they are not neglecting to invest in his future. Is there really a future for the Belgian U-21 midfielder to land at Anfield…?
