This seems like a transfer that would make sense for all parties.
Brighton, who recently confirmed their promotion to the top flight of English football, are interested in Liverpool’s out of favour Englishman Kevin Stewart.
The ‘youngster’ (who’s actually almost 24) hasn’t played since January and will miss the rest of the campaign with a hernia problem, certain to depart this summer.
Jurgen Klopp cannot give him the first-team football he’s after, but according to the Telegraph, Brighton boss Chris Hughton is considering a £10m bid for the touch-tackling midfielder.
Stewart is very capable off the ball and works his socks off, but lacks the required quality to do a job for us long-term.
We’re likely to bring in new central midfielders this summer, with Red Bull Leipzig’s Naby Keita a top target, so Keita’s time at the club is definitely up.
We hope he does get a move to Brighton and is able to show the coastal club what he can do.
