Sky Sports drop major Liverpool transfer update they’ve heard from reliable journalist
The desperation of requiring a midfielder has made Liverpool transfer news the talk of the town at Anfield road. It can’t be disputed that the middle of the park needs attention for most of the rejuvenation.
The Reds are struggling in the midfield area. Particularly with all three of Naby Keita, James Milner, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain looking destined for the exit door once their contracts expire.
Liverpool transfer news
According to an update from Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg, Sky Sports tweeted out a video update on the number 8’s future in which it was claimed that a return to Germany could be on the cards for the Guinean international who is ‘on the verge of leaving’ at the end of the campaign.
The 27-year-old joined the English giants back in the 2018-19 season. Naby scored 2 goals and gave an assist in his debut season.
This season the Guinean international played 6 matches in the Premier League where he scored zero goals and gave zero assists. The Red’s number 8 has an expected xG of 0.6 and an expected npxG of 0.6.
Although the numbers are not that impressive, the ex-Leipzig star plays an important role in dribbling past other midfielders.
Thiago Alcantara is prone to injury, the minimum requirement of two midfield additions in the summer is needed if Keita departs at the end of the current campaign.
Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott, and Fabio Carvalho are still young to let them handle this Liverpool’s midfield. Although Klopp has huge faith in academy players and young talents.
Jude Bellingham had been reported as the Red’s prime target but the main problem is the Merseyside giant’s financial situation. Liverpool were also linked with the Argentine sensation Enzo Fernandez but eventually could not withstand Chelsea’s massive offer.
Other than Jude, Ruben Neves and Mathus Nunes are also linked with the Merseyside club. However, as of now it still seems as if Liverpool are going to go big in the summers and bring in the big fish named Bellingham.
