Liverpool To Hijack Manchester City And Bayern’s Midfield Target In Stunning £60.4M Move!

Liverpool have started their summer transfer activities by initiating talks to sign Porto midfielder Alan Varela. A busy summer transfer window awaits Arne Slot’s Liverpool.

Varela joined Porto from Boca Juniors last summer for up to €11 million. Since then, he has impressed with his ball retention, ball progression, and defensive skills.

His standout performance in the Portuguese top flight did not go unnoticed. Despite a release clause of £60.4 million, he is on the radar of Manchester City and Bayern Munich.

In his debut season in Liga Portugal, Varela made 26 appearances helping Porto clinch a third-place finish and reach the Champions League’s last 16.

Liverpool’s midfield issues were evident in the last season as they struggled defensively despite the efforts of Alexis Mac Allister and Wataru Endo.

Adding a natural defensive midfielder like Varela can address a critical gap in the squad. Also, Slot is eager to rebuild Liverpool’s lineup to match his tactical vision.

Why Liverpool Are Perfect For Varela?

Reports from Argentine journalist Leo Pardizo and Deportes 24 indicate that Liverpool have made initial inquiries about Varela, joining Manchester City and Bayern Munich in the race.

At Liverpool Varela may get more regular playing time compared to the established squads of Manchester City and Bayern Munich, where competition for starting spot is wild.

At Anfield Varela will face competition from only Endo. Liverpool may offer him greater opportunities to establish himself as a key player.

Varela may become the first signing of the Arne Slot era symbolizing a fresh chapter for the club. His arrival will add depth and a new dimension to the squad.

The midfield department of Liverpool already boasts names like Mac Allister, Domonik Szoboszlai, Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott, and Ryan Gravenberch. The addition of another name like Varela will be impressive.

Liverpool are also in search of suitable players in the full-back, centre-back, and forward positions. Names like Archie Gray and Crysencio Summerville are heating up the transfer rumours.
