Liverpool are actively searching for a new midfielder that isn’t Naby Keita, Paul Joyce writes in the Times.
We’ve finally accepted that Rb Leipzig will not sell the Guinean this summer and with Adam Lallana absent and Coutinho awol – our central options are very limited.
Joyce claims that while Klopp is happy with his current options, he’d ideally supplement the current squad with another midfielder before the window closes.
With a Champions League campaign expected, we need another body, especially considering the fact Jordan Henderson looks off the pace and like he’s playing with an injury again.
There’s been murmurings that Jean Michael Seri of Nice is a target, but no bid has been submitted for the pint-sized Ivorian who shone in Ligue 1 last term.
Ideally, we need someone who can provide a box-to-box influence but also someone who can break lines with passes – something Henderson, Emre Can and Gini Wijnaldum struggle to do.
