No acquisition of Joao Palhinha…Liverpool is considering reinforcement points in next market

No acquisition of Joao Palhinha...Liverpool is considering reinforcement points in next market Transfers

Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Fabinho, and other Liverpool midfielders have left the team due to transfers or expiring contracts, and new players such as Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai have been brought in.

However, Stefan Bajcetic has been injured and the team has acquired Japanese midfielder Wataru Endo, but there are few experienced players at the bottom of the midfield.

Rumors of acquiring a defensive midfielder have been flying recently, with Fluminense midfielder Andre and others reported as targets.

Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha is also considered one of the candidates, but Christian Falk, a German journalist, dismissed the possibility. Liverpool is also discussing positions that should be strengthened this winter.

“There have been lots of rumours regarding Fulham’s Joao Palhinha in recent weeks and I can honestly say that I don’t have concrete information on Liverpool being in talks to sign Palhinha yet,”

“For sure the top Premier League clubs are informed on the player’s situation at Craven Cottage but nothing has started in terms of negotiations with Joao or Fulham yet. Also, Liverpool still have to decide what areas of the pitch they want to invest in during the January transfer window.”

The Daily Briefing

From an objective point of view, center back seems to be the priority position due to the increasing average age of the players, combined with Joel Matip’s long absence. 

Will Liverpool ever acquire a new defender next January…?
