Who is the Bundesliga midfielder linked with Liverpool for the winter transfer window?

Konrad Laimer

RB Leipzig midfielder Konrad Laimer has been linked to Liverpool since this winter, but who is he and what can he add?

Konrad Laimer: a possible midfield addition?

It is generally agreed that the Reds would benefit from adding a new midfielder in the middle of the season due to injury issues causing a bad start to the season, at least in the Premier League.

With just 13 minutes on the field before suffering a catastrophic injury, deadline-day loan signing Arthur is out indefinitely, while Naby Keita hasn’t played since the Community Shield.

Fabinho, James Milner, and Harvey Elliott are the only midfielders to have made every matchday squad thus far. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones, Thiago, and Jordan Henderson have all taken time off.

Liverpool to make a move?

The club has its eyes on a midfielder during the winter transfer window, according to Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg. They claim to have obtained information from Jurgen Klopp’s agency. What do we know about Leipzig’s No. 27 now that Laimer is a possibility?

The 25-year-old Laimer was born in Salzburg. He joined Salzburg as a young player in 2007 before joining the Red Bull system.

His professional career began at FC Liefering, a sister club in the second division. It was before he returned to Salzburg and developed into a key member of the team throughout three productive seasons.

Before making the logical move to Leipzig in 2017, he played there alongside Naby Keita, Sadio Mane, Takumi Minamino, and Andre Wisdom, the latter of whom was on loan from Liverpool.

Laimer is compared statistically to players like Thomas Lemar, Mahmoud Dahoud, and Florian Neuhaus by FBref. All of whom have been mentioned as potential targets for Liverpool in the past.

The midfielder is scheduled to return in December. It should give him time to get back in shape during the winter break before making a comeback when the season picks up. However, it could raise a red signal for recruiters.
