Liverpool are reportedly set to begin negotiations with Sporting CP over a potential transfer for Matheus Nunes.
This claim comes courtesy of Correio da Manha (via Sport Witness), with the publication asserting that Jurgen Klopp has reconsidered the Reds’ transfer plans midway through pre-season.
Such a change of mind does conflict with recent comments from the 55-year-old who noted he was more than satisfied with his side’s current array of options in the middle of the park.
Indeed, the suggestion has been that a further addition to the squad simply won’t take place without an exit first occurring.
At the moment, we’d be inclined to advise supporters to take this story with a pinch of salt until further updates arise.
It’s clear that a bolstering of the midfield will need to take place by the next summer at the latest, provided that we don’t lose a man before the window closes.
