Liverpool ‘strongly linked’ with summer swoop for two highly regarded midfielders, says Sunday World journalist

Posted by

Liverpool are thought to remain keen on bolstering the midfield at the next available opportunity, with the summer likely to bring about further additions to the squad beyond Luis Diaz.

The Reds are reportedly linked with a double summer swoop for Aurelien Tchouameni and Youri Tielemans come the end of the campaign, according to a tweet from Sunday World journalist, Kevin Palmer.

The Leicester City star had been tipped to make the switch to Anfield last summer, though the Foxes asking price was considered prohibitive.

With only a year set to be remaining on the Belgian’s contract come the end of the season, however, Brendan Rodgers’ outfit could be forced to part ways with one of their top talents.

At the age of 24 (set to turn 25 in May), the central midfielder would fit within our recruitment team’s idea of a suitable transfer, with the club in a far stronger position to negotiate should Tielemans not agree fresh terms before the summer.

Tchouameni would represent a different challenge in that his agreement isn’t set to expire until 2024, though the absence of a Premier League premium could still prove to be an enticing prospect.

With the young talent we have coming through, of course, not to mention our ongoing interest in Fulham’s Fabio Carvalho, it seems unlikely that both men will be brought in down the line.
