Liverpool are reportedly looking to sign three midfielders in the summer transfer window. The Reds are set to focus mainly on getting fresh faces at the heart of the pitch to bolster Jurgen Klopp’s squad.As per a report in Football Insider, Liverpool are keen on signing three midfielders, but mainly as replacements for the outgoing players. Naby Keita, Alex Oxalde-Chamberlain and James Milner are expected to leave the club at the end of the season when their contracts expire.
The Reds have been linked with a host of players, but Jude Bellingham remains their top target. Football Insider’s report suggests the Reds have ‘huge cash’ saved for the reinforcements, but a significant chunk could head to Borussia Dortmund, who are demanding €150 million for their prized asset.
Mason Mount is the next hot property on the radar for Klopp, as his contract at Chelsea is heading into the final months. He will have one year remaining on his current deal and the Blues are ready to cash out if he does not sign a new contract soon.
Liverpool told to sign Chelsea target over other midfielders
Former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann believes the Reds need to sign a holding midfielder in the summer. He has suggested Declan Rice as the top priority, a player who is also a top target for Chelsea and Arsenal.
Going on to talk about Rice, the former Reds star said:
“So, you probably need three of four midfielders alone and that takes a lot of money. I think midfield is the area, and I think what they do need is a holding midfielder. I think if you add a holding midfielder in the summer, I look at Declan Rice. I think he’s a player who could really transform the team.”
West Ham United are reportedly open to selling the midfielder this summer.
