Liverpool pushed for a revamp of its midfielders, adding four players, including Alexis Mc Allister. Intensity in the midfield has also been restored, and more technique has been added than in the days of Jordan Henderson and James Milner.
However, it has been widely reported that further midfield reinforcements are on the way, and one of the top targets is Fluminense midfielder Andre. The club had tried to acquire him earlier this summer, but his club refused to budge.
The club’s president has hinted that he will leave the club after this winter, raising the possibility that he will try his luck on the European stage this winter.
On the other hand, the club has not yet given up on Nice midfielder Khéphren Thuram, who, like the Brazilian midfielder, has been linked with joining Liverpool, according to Sport Mediaset.
Juventus is said to be interested in the 22-year-old midfielder, who has a good physique and high athletic ability, and the possibility of him joining the club where his father, Lilian Thuram, a former French national team player, spent time.
However, it is unlikely that Liverpool will turn their attention to France again at this point. No credible journalist or media outlet has reported any interest in the player, and those that have are mainly gossip papers, so it is doubtful that they can be trusted.
With Dutch midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, another tall, box-to-box type, joining Liverpool, the club may not need any more lanky midfielders.
The odds are low, but Liverpool’s past interest is a fact, and contrary to expectations, will he ever land at Anfield…?
