Michael Edwards, Julian Ward, Jorg Schmatke…The position of head of the reinforcement department, Sporting Director at Liverpool in recent years has not been fixed.
Combined with the departure of Jurgen Klopp, the organizational structure is beginning to change significantly for the upcoming season.
The club is looking for a new sporting director, as the position, which was taken over by Fenway Sports Group and supports the precise reinforcements that are at the heart of Liverpool’s reform, is vacant.
According to Sky Sport Germany’s Florian Plettenberg, Tim Steidten, who was previously involved in transfers at Bremen and Bayer Leverkusen and is currently in charge of reinforcements at West Ham, is one of the candidates to replace him.
“Tim Steidten is one of the candidates to become the new Sporting Director at FC Liverpool.”
“Steidten, happy at West Ham as their Technical Director.”
“He has finalized the deals of Alvarez, Ward-Prowse, Kudus, Phillips and more.”
“No direct contact with Liverpool at this stage.”

Compared to Manchester City, Chelsea, and Manchester United, Liverpool has difficulty reinforcing with big money.
They will only be able to be successful if they are skilled in their ability to acquire players for the right transfer fee, as was carried out in last summer’s transfer market.
Other candidates are directors who are in charge of reinforcement at clubs that are similarly making good use of their limited budgets. How will Liverpool, which is facing a major transition this summer, including its next director, fit into the picture…?
