Enzo Fernandez backed to ‘go straight into Liverpool XI’ after source’s signing reveals

Former Aston Villa and England striker Gabby Agbonlahor has backed Enzo Fernandez to “fit straight in” at Liverpool.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa attacker insisted Fernandez has “everything” after playing a key role in Argentina winning the World Cup.

Argentine publication Diario La Capital claimed last week that an agreement already existed between Benfica and Liverpool regarding Fernandez. It stated: “The English club already has an agreement in principle with the Portuguese club to incorporate the young Argentina midfielder from June 2023.”

It has been widely reported that he has a £105million release clause at Benfica after joining the club in the summer.

Benfica is expected to receive a flood of offers, but they are reportedly not under any pressure to sell. The 21-year-old, who recently relocated from River Plate to Lisbon, would want to go to Liverpool if he were to leave the Estadio da Luz.

“I really liked Fernandez,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.

“I thought he was aggressive, good on the ball and the goal he scored against Mexico was a screamer. He’s got everything.

“It all depends on what club needs what and how much a club needs a certain type of player. I’m sure he will definitely get a move it just depends on what club needs a centre-midfielder.

“He would fit straight in at Newcastle, he would fit straight in to the starting XI at Liverpool and Chelsea could do with a fresh midfielder.

“It just depends on what club he goes for and what club wants to spend that sort of money.”

Fernandez, who played in all seven of Argentina’s World Cup matches, was awarded the tournament’s best young player.

After moving from River Plate for £15 million in the summer, he signed a deal with Benfica that runs through the summer of 2027.

Liverpool transfer; Fabrizio Romano drops major Liverpool January transfer window claim after midfielder links emerge

Despite rumors that Brighton and Hove Albion are interested in Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Liverpool is not planning to let any of their current midfielders depart during the winter transfer window.

Fabrizio Romano provided this information in his most recent FREE column for CaughtOffside, as the Reds are unlikely to make any changes of their own before the summer.

“Despite Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain being linked as a target for Brighton, I don’t think Liverpool will let any midfielder leave in January… let’s see what happens in the summer,” the Italian wrote.

“Besides, for now Brighton’s priority is a new centre-back.”

Three alternatives for midfield have contracts that are set to expire this year, including the former Arsenal star, and it is anticipated that at least two of them would leave.

This presents us with a dilemma in the summer, depending on our financial situation: do we spend a lot of money on one top player (in this case, Jude Bellingham), at the risk of passing up the chance to bolster the squad with more players?

Liverpool, which is languishing in ninth place in the Premier League, has been eager to revive its sluggish and ageing midfield.

In fact, moves for some of the most sought-after players in football, such Jude Bellingham and Enzo Fernandez, have been linked to the Reds this summer.

Gravenberch, who just recently made the £20 million switch from Ajax to Bayern Munich last summer, is reportedly interested in leaving Bavaria.

The Netherlands international has played just 221 minutes in the Bundesliga this season despite appearing 18 times in all competitions for Bayern.

In turn, the 20-year-old has been tipped to go out on loan this January, with Liverpool one of the clubs linked.

Romano, a transfer expert, dismissed the possibility of Gravenberch joining Jurgen Klopp’s team in January.

According to the Italian journalist, Bayern has “no intention” of accepting to the player’s loan transfer.

Romano tweeted: “Bayern have no intention to accept any loan proposal for Ryan Gravenberch in January, as of now. He’s considered an important player for the future.

“Many clubs asked for possible loan until June but no green light so far.”

After the young player’s agent, Rafaela Pimenta, was seen outside Anfield, there have been rumours that Gravenberch would be close to a move to Liverpool.

According to the image, the agent was in Merseyside to speak with Gravenberch, one of her clients, about a potential loan move.

Liverpool target set to be offered ‘club-record deal’ as contract talks disclosed

Liverpool target Jude Bellingham is to be offered a club-record deal to stay at Borussia Dortmund, according to a fresh report.

One of the most sought-after midfielders in football is the 19-year-old.

The La Liga giants Real Madrid and Ligue 1 leader Paris Saint-Germain are both interested in the England star.

Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Liverpool are all vying for Bellingham’s services in the Premier League.

Bellingham is reportedly Jurgen Klopp’s team’s top summer transfer target. Liverpool are currently ninth in the Premier League standings, 21 points behind league leaders Arsenal.

The squad is in desperate need of new midfield players since its starting lineup is ageing and out of shape, and because fringe players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita are expected to leave in the summer.

Dortmund appears to be making every effort to keep the midfielder the former Birmingham man.

According to German publication Bild, Dortmund are preparing a last-ditch offer worth a whopping £13.25million-a-year to keep Bellingham at the club.

The youngster would become the highest-paid player in the history of the club with such a deal.

A friend of the player’s family and Bellingham’s adviser Mark Bennett are reportedly planning to speak before the end of March.

Hans-Joachim Watzke, the chief executive of Dortmund, and Sebastian Kehl, the sporting director, are apparently “fighting” to persuade the 22-time England international to remain in Germany for another year.

The present contract for Bellingham expires in the summer of 2025, but the club would want to see the player sign a one-year extension.

The new terms would see Bellingham eclipse club captain Marco Reus’ salary, despite the German international having made 368 appearances in all competitions for the Black and Yellows.

Liverpool could still complete £68m transfer plan as Real Madrid truth comes to light

In an effort to rejuvenate an aging midfield, Liverpool had an exciting summer transfer window planned for 2022. The Reds pursued Aurelien Tchouameni.

Despite reports of a £68 million bid, the Merseysiders ultimately lost out to Real Madrid’s interest.

However, there is perhaps one indication that the move may not ultimately be to Carlo Ancelotti’s liking because the head coach acknowledged some positional concerns with the Frenchman.

“Tchouameni is not comfortable if he plays with another DM in a midfield 3, Camavinga is better under that aspect,” the Italian Real Madrid TV (via Madrid Universal).

“A double pivot of Camavinga and Tchouameni? It could be an idea for the future.”

If contracts are not renewed, up to three midfielders (excluding loan star Arthur Melo) may permanently leave the AXA training facility at the end of the current campaign.

As a result, if we want to enter the next campaign at a higher level of readiness, it will be a problem of quantity as well as quality in terms of necessary incomings.

In 2023, Jude Bellingham will continue to be Jurgen Klopp’s top priority, but it could be worthwhile to monitor Tchouameni’s status in the Spanish city in case questions over his role in the midfield three remain.

Though we are aware of their existence, it’s unlikely that we’ll end up stealing the former Monaco player from the Champions League holders any time soon.

When questioned about his devotion to his most dependable aides, Jurgen Klopp promptly responded by giving consecutive starts to Stefan Bajcetic and Naby Keita while relegating players like Jordan Henderson and Fabinho to the bench for Liverpool’s draw with Chelsea.

At the very least in terms of energy on the field, these adjustments seem to have improved performance levels, but there’s no denying that the Reds still need to invest heavily in the middle of the park for a variety of reasons.

While permanent options are still tantalizingly out of reach, Ryan Gravenberch’s loan was one option that the club was rumored to consider (after the 20-year-agent old’s was spotted at Anfield).

However, an update from Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg on Twitter has definitively ended any possibility of approach.

It’s a tremendous tragedy to see Liverpool being stopped from following fellow strugglers Chelsea in adding a top-quality player till the end of the season after previously having the Bayern star in our sights and then during his Ajax days.
