Ilkay Gundogan weighs in on possible Liverpool transfer once contract expires in 2023

Posted by

Ilkay Gundogan has officially ruled out the prospect of a reunion with former manager Jurgen Klopp once his contract expires with Manchester City next summer.

The German admitted that he remains ‘relaxed’ about the situation, noting that not even Pep Guardiola’s future in Manchester has been secured, in comments to Kicker, as relayed on Twitter by Fabrizio Romano.

Though a once phenomenal operator for the German tactician, it’s fair to say fans can rule out the prospect of his compatriot attracting genuine interest from the Reds’ recruitment team in light of his age (32).

We’ll be in the market for someone within (or around) the 20-24 age range we’ve generally favoured, with the goal being to not only bring down the average age of the midfield but also ensure the department is replenished.

Potentially three options could all depart next summer given that James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita’s contracts are set to expire in 2023.

Jude Bellingham is at the very top of our shortlist but we could do with at least another senior option and, preferably, a holding midfielder to provide competition for Fabinho.
