Liverpool target now ‘given permission’ to fly over for his medical – Sky Sports

Posted by

Stuttgart have reportedly handed Wataru Endo permission to undergo a medical in Liverpool today.

The Reds moved quickly to arrange a deal with the German outfit amid an ongoing search for midfield reinforcements in the summer window.

“Stuttgart, we are being told, have given permission for Wataru Endu to have his medical (moved quite quickly this one) at Liverpool later on today,” reporters spoke on Sky Sports News’ morning show.

Furthermore, it’s understood that the fee could rise to ‘just over’ £21m for the Japanese international, should a move be completed

After being burnt twice in as many days over the pursuit of Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia – now both Chelsea-bound – it’s refreshing to see the club returning to its roots and moving quietly behind the scenes to arrange a transfer with as little fuss and fanfare as possible.

With a clash upcoming against Bournemouth on Saturday, we’ll need to see a medical fully completed and the player registered before Friday afternoon if fans are to catch a look at our potential latest signing at Anfield.

It’s a fee, too, that allows us to still be flexible in the market regarding our search for a top-quality holding midfielder, with Cheick Doucoure perhaps most seriously touted to fill that role for potentially £60m.

More Stories Liverpool Wataru Endo


  1. A young Japanese player, from 111 million to 21 million a chance Liverpool going to take on what could turn out to be a duff, am sorry to say that buys like these are just basic squad players and nothing special I hope am wrong, we need to compete on a serious level but not with buys like this inmy opinion.

    1. You not knowing anything about the player and his relatively low cost don’t make this a duff signing. Do your research and see what people who know the German league are saying about Endo…which is all very positive …when Fulham got Paulinha, he was low cost and 27 from a lesser league ..he proved to be outstanding.

      I don’t know how good Endo will prove to be for us but I think as a versatile experienced DM as one of 2 or 3 midfield additions beyond McAlister and Sobozslai, it could prove to be a very astute and valuable signing…..we need some truly defensively adept midfielders and apparently he is one…..and at a price that doesn’t preclude more additions….

  2. The club can’t win with some of you. We haven’t got a proper 6. Yes Bajcetic. He’s too young. We buy experience. He’s too old. I’ve never heard of him. Well you aren’t a manager or sporting director. There is so much you don’t know.

  3. They are always making shrewd purchases in the market and this may just be another one. Roberson from Hull, Salah, Mane… just three recently BUT they have also put their hand in their pocket and paid for Allison and Van Dyke to name just Two previously and Nunes recently….. lets waiting and see

  4. This smells of desperation and short term thinking. I can’t believe how poor our Sporting Director and supporting team have become. What a disgrace. I mean, how can they actually justify spending upto 21m for a 30 year old??? even if he is actually quite good, but messing about for the sake of a few million for Lavia. Even as I’m writing this I’m in disbelief. Carra says don’t blame the owners?? Who else is to blame for the way their business / club is run. IF we sign Granvenbach and Ignacio for instance then it won’t be too bad BUT I’m not holding my breath.

    1. 21 m is chump change these days, and I think Endo will turn out to be a gem, He’ll surely be out to prove the pessimists wrong. The battle for Caicedo turned into a battle of wills between L and C, rather than a logical appraisal of value for money, Meanwhile,, our recruitment team could plan for the future and take a trip to South America and pick up some talent there; seems like there’s plenty.

  5. From Bellingham, to caicedo to Romeo lavia to a 30 year old Japanese player. We can’t sink any lower.
    Fabinho who was sold because apparently his legs had gone at 29. A 30 year old steps in and the truth is it’s a complete joke of a signing.
    A downgrade on fabinho.

    He can also play as a centre back, which will will save FSG buying a central defender. No doubt shirt sales will go up in Japan.

    Liverpool football club need to be aiming higher than this if we ever want to challenge at the top again.
    3rd richest club, where’s the Ambition.
    FSG have done the same at the Boston red Sox, mid tier players mid tier wages, turned them into underdogs.

    It’s a comedy signing from charlatan owners FSG and they are turning Liverpool into a joke football club.
