After acquiring four midfielders in the transfer market this summer, Liverpool has begun to revamp its midfield, which is said to be the cause of last season’s poor performance.
The club is also expected to make a move to acquire Brazilian midfielder Andre from Fluminense this winter, and is looking to strengthen its midfield.
And more reinforcements may be waiting in the wings. According to Christian Falk, a German journalist, Liverpool are keen on Bayern Munich midfielder Jamal Musiala, with contract negotiations still in progress, and are tracking the young England-born talent.
“Liverpool’s German coach, Jürgen Klopp, and sports director, Jörg Schmadtke, are once again eyeing the Bundesliga – and could really annoy FC Bayern over three personalities!”
“The most important: Liverpool are very interested in Jamal Musiala.”
“After Jude Bellingham, the Reds don’t want to miss out on the next talent from the Bundesliga originally trained in England.”
“Liverpool are hopeful in light of their awareness of Musiala’s agents having decided not to hold talks about a new contract with Bayern this season, with his current terms running until 2026.”
“Musiala’s side would first like a commitment from the club that ensures he has a permanent place in the first team in the future.”
“In addition, he is by no means one of the top earners at €8m.”
“His salary would probably have to be at least doubled.”Fact Files column
Depending on which position the German midfielder is used in, it is difficult to make a transfer that guarantees him a regular role at Liverpool. He can also play on the left wing, for example, and if he can get a start in several areas, he is likely to play in every game.
His dribble penetration and passing sense, with his unique touch and ability to play off the opposing defenders, is so well developed that it is hard to believe that he is 20 years old. His scoring ability is something that needs improvement, but he has the ability to become a legend at Anfield.
However, Bayern will not easily let him go, making him a difficult acquisition. Will Liverpool really be in the market for the German national team midfielder?
