According to Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool target Ismael Bennacer is set to sign a new contract at AC Milan.
The regular injuries to Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson have severely constrained Klopp’s options for the Reds, leaving them in desperate need of midfielders.
Fabinho has struggled to match the success of the previous season. And he usually receives criticism for his subpar performances.
According to TalkSPORT analyst Tony Cascarino, Thiago Alcantara is the issue because when he plays, Liverpool is “flawed.”
Liverpool’s dismal 2-2 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers will only feed their desperation as they try to qualify for the Champions League.
The club was likely close to a deal with Algerian international Bennacer last month. And Klopp is reportedly a significant fan of the player.
Ismael Bennacer rejects Liverpool in favour of AC Milan
Liverpool reportedly wanted to sign Bennacer last summer but decided to take Artur on loan instead. Since his arrival, he has only played in one game, entering as a substitute during Liverpool’s 4-1 loss to Napoli. Klopp might regret not signing the Milan star sooner.
Jude Bellingham, a World Cup champion, is still a target for Liverpool fans to bring him to Anfield. However, the possibility that they will not qualify for the Champions League may eliminate their hopes.
The team’s next Premier League match is against Brighton. And if they hope to save their season, three points are a must.

Since leaving North London, Bennacer has dramatically improved. And he led Milan to win the Scudetto last year.
After just one first-team outing at the Emirates Stadium, he has already been dubbed a “world-class” midfielder.
Arsenal was also heavily linked to signing the player. But Bennacer looks to stay longer at Milan.
