Liverpool and Manchester United are hot on the trail of Hertha Berlin's 18-year-old midfielder Bence Dárdai Transfers

Liverpool’s midfielders acquired in last summer’s transfer market are thriving. The average age of the midfielders has also been reduced, and a generational change has taken place.

Liverpool’s main reinforcements this summer are likely to be at center back and right winger, but reports of interest in midfielders continue to abound. A wide variety of midfield names have surfaced, including Jamal Moussiala, Florian Wirtz, and Teun Koopmeiners, but a new player has joined the list.

According to HITC, Liverpool are keen on 18-year-old midfielder Bence Dárdai, who has been performing with potential at Hertha Berlin, and could be in a battle with Manchester United, also in England.

The 18-year-old midfielder has made eight appearances for Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga this season, and has also played a number of games due to an ankle injury. Although his game count has not increased due to an ankle injury, his performances for the U-19 team and the German U-18 national team have been highly regarded, and he is attracting attention as an up-and-coming midfielder.

He has spent time at his current club since his academy days, and his two brothers also play for the same club. Pál Dárdai, who also played numerous games for the Hungarian national team during his playing days, and the player’s father, Pál Dárdai, is a coach at Hertha Berlin, making it a full family affair.

However, Liverpool is unlikely to make any concrete moves. Teenagers Bobby Clark and James McConnell are having breakthrough seasons, and 21-year-old midfielder Tyler Morton and 21-year-old midfielder Fabio Carvalho have impressed at Hull City, so there is little need for reinforcements.

Will the young German midfielder defy expectations and cross over to Anfield?
