Liverpool are hunting for a new midfielder as Fabrizio Romano provides an update about their dream target.
It is well known that the Reds need to add a midfielder in the last few days of the transfer window. This is due to injuries and players who are becoming older and out of shape in that position.
However, time is running out for Liverpool to make some moves as the Thursday deadline draws nearer, and some fans might be growing impatient.
A fresh update on the circumstance has arisen. And it seems that an incoming may be imminent.
Romano on Liverpool’s target midfielder
Romano said in an interview with Caught Offside that Liverpool had not made a bid for Neves. But the emphasis now is on bringing in a midfielder before the deadline on Thursday night.
According to the Italian, Liverpool have not made proposals or started talks for Neves over the weekend,. But Jurgen Klopp and the club board are looking for a last-minute opportunity with favourable economic conditions.
It would now be shocking if Liverpool didn’t sign a midfielder this week. It is given the recent growth of rumours about players like Jude Bellingham and the obvious need for fresh talent.
Jordan Henderson and James Milner are well into their 30s, and Thiago and Naby Keita are frustratingly injury-prone. Some new blood is a need for the squad’s depth as well as the fight for starting positions.
Neves might decide to stay at Wolves once the transfer window closes. But there are many more capable candidates who could strengthen Liverpool’s midfield.
The ideal candidate might be Konrad Laimer of RB Leipzig, who has been mentioned as a target. This season, the German is averaging two tackles and two dribbles per game in the Bundesliga. Liverpool needs to act soon now.
