Liverpool and Tottenham looking at Moroccan midfielder Bilal El Khannouss...€18m could be required Transfers

Liverpool, who added Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo, and Ryan Gravenberch to their squad this summer with reinforcements, have revamped their midfield, as many players around 30 have left the club.

Unlike last season, the team has regained its athleticism in midfield and is a contender for the Premier League championship. Liverpool is also reportedly looking for a defensive midfielder who can handle the bottom of the midfield, with the possibility of acquiring an additional midfielder.

However, a different story was reported from the Italian side. According to Il Corriere Dello Sport, Liverpool are interested in Moroccan midfielder Bilal El Khannouss from KRC Henk and are preparing a transfer fee said to be around €18 million.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder joined the club’s youth team in 2019 and was promoted to the first team last season.

After starting 31 games in the Belgian Pro League, he has been a regular this season and has shown his ability in European competitions such as the Conference League.

In addition to Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur is also interested in the Belgian-born Moroccan midfielder, hoping to secure the talented young gem for a team that does not have a large pool of players.

On the other hand, attacking midfielder is not a priority position for Liverpool. In addition to the midfielders, Cody Gakpo is also used in midfield, and although injured, former Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara is also available.

If there is any new strength to be added to the midfield, it is a defensive midfielder.

However, if the goal is to encourage development over the next few years, rather than immediate success, it would be an appropriate decision.

Will Liverpool ever welcome a supernova from the Jupiler Pro League to Anfield?
