Liverpool offer as much as €45 million for Atalanta midfielder Ederson Transfers

Liverpool are planning reinforcements from Europa League champions Atalanta. They are in the market for Brazilian midfielder Ederson, whose name was mentioned during the season, and have made an offer of €45 million, according to Jorge Nicola, a Brazilian journalist.

The 24-year-old midfielder finished fourth in Serie A and has made 53 appearances this season, including through the Coppa Italia. He operates mainly as a central midfielder and as a defensive midfielder, running all over the pitch with his abundant athleticism.

He has also played against Liverpool in the Europa League. He started in both home and away matches, contributing to the quarter-final passage with a total of 3-1. In the final, they lifted the trophy with an impressive three-goal victory against Bayer Leverkusen, the undefeated Bundesliga champions.

Attackers and centre-backs were seen as Liverpool’s top priority for reinforcements, but a defensive midfielder who can compete regularly with 31-year-old midfielder Wataru Endo is essential. It is likely that the Brazilian midfielder is calculated to be used there.

However, with 19-year-old Spanish midfielder Stefan Bajcetic, as well as Tyler Morton, who has been impressive at Hull City, and James McConnell, who made his first-team debut this season, there is no telling how much of the budget will be allocated to this position.

Will Liverpool accelerate their pursuit of the Atalanta midfielder?
