Enzo Fernandez, a probable long-term Thiago Alcantara replacement.
Enzo Fernandez as Thiago replacement?
Enzo Fernandez of Benfica is just one of several midfielders linked with a summer transfer to Liverpool.
The reds have expressed interest in him. The Portuguese club finally prevailed in the competition to recruit him from River Plate.
At the conclusion of the transfer window, Melissa Reddy of Sky Sports claimed that the club had retained a “watching brief” on the Argentina international.
Rumors about Liverpool potentially signing Fernandez in the future have persisted since the deadline. Bruno González Garca, a football analyst and podcast presenter from Argentina, spoke with the ECHO to get the inside scoop on one of the continent’s most exciting young players.
What does the Argentine brings into the table?
He possesses all the qualities of a top-tier midfielder. He is bold, has excellent positioning, is an excellent game reader, is powerful, has class, and has a tonne of technique. His heat maps also reveal that he is everywhere. It enables him to be in continual communication with the game. A midfielder scoring three goals in his first three games in Europe without having that position as his major responsibility for the club is unusual.
Big shoes to fill
Thiago is one of the first players included on Klopp’s team sheet when healthy. He provides the midfield with a whole new perspective.
A contemporary midfielder should have cutting passes, an impressive passing range, and pretty much everything else.
The next season the Spanish international thrived. And an honestly amazing sequence of events that left the squad without any center-backs for the majority of the season.
It’s a treat to watch the Spanish international dazzle in the midfield. However, injuries are always a concern. If the possible link for Enzo and the Reds turns into a reality, the Argentine has big shoes to fill.
