Liverpool in the battle for Benfica midfielder João Neves...Competition with Man U, Chelsea and others Transfers

Midfielders who joined last summer, such as Alexis Mac Allister, Dominic Soboslai, and Wataru Endo, are playing very well.Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott have also established themselves in the starting class, and young players such as Bobby Clarke are emerging.

Liverpool has a well-stocked midfield, but there are still reports of interest in midfielders. While various names such as Florian Wirtz, Jamal Musiala, and Teun Koopmeiners are being tossed around, interest in a Portuguese gem has surfaced.

According to O Jogo, Liverpool is one of several clubs interested in Benfica midfielder João Neves and could be in contention with Manchester United, Chelsea, Barcelona, and Paris Saint-Germain in the summer transfer window.

Promoted to the first team in the winter of 2023, he has played many games as a regular this season. He has made 26 appearances in the domestic league so far and has been in the starting lineup in all six Champions League games against Inter Milan and Real Sociedad.

The up-and-coming young Portuguese midfielder will make his debut for the national team in October 2023, and despite being only 19 years old, he has started four games and his reputation is only growing. As a defensive midfielder, he has turned into a player that the best clubs in Europe can’t take their eyes off.

The paper adds that a release clause of around 100 million pounds has been set, and with youngsters such as Stefan Bajcetic and James McConnell waiting in the wings in addition to 31-year-old midfielder Wataru Endo, there is no reason to spend most of the budget on this position.

Basically, Liverpool’s priority reinforcement points are center backs and forwards. It is unlikely that they will make a move for the Portuguese gem, but what do you think?
