Liverpool, which worked to rebuild its midfield during this summer’s transfer window, acquired four players, including Alexis Mack Alistair, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo, and Ryan Gravenberch.
The Argentine and Hungarian midfielders, who joined the team in preseason, have been the mainstays of the team since the start of the season.
Liverpool, who are looking to further strengthen their midfield, are also said to be in the market for Fluminense midfielder Andre, who could reportedly be acquired in this winter transfer market.
Meanwhile, there are also rumors of interest in England midfielder Kalvin Phillips, who has struggled for playing time at Manchester City.
It is no surprise that he has been mentioned as a target, as interest from Liverpool was also reported during his time at Leeds United. The player, who was part of the England squad earlier this month, had spoken of his need to play for the club.
“I want to play football and want to play as much as possible,”
“Over the last year and a half I haven’t been able to do that due to injuries and [other factors]. It’s something I am going to have to think about.”
“Hopefully my chance does come but if it doesn’t then I will have to make other decisions as well.”
According to Sky Sport Germany’s Florian Plettenberg, Manchester City is expected to allow the former Leeds midfielder, who is not satisfied with his current situation, to leave the club this winter on a loan transfer with an option to buy, and Liverpool may be interested.
Other strong clubs such as Bayern Munich and Juventus are also interested, which could lead to a three-team race for the player.
The national captain still needs time to get used to the Premier League and Klopp’s soccer, and Stefan Bajcetic is still young. Mac Allister is a regular at the bottom of midfield, but many prefer him at inside half.
The addition of an experienced English midfielder, not only in the domestic league but also on the international stage, would certainly boost the squad.
However, there is a high probability that the Brazilian midfielder in his early 20s will be preferred, and he is sure to be the center of attention in the upcoming transfer market.
