“His agent pushed Liverpool “- Journalists tells Liverpool to sign Premier League Midfielder ‘Open To A Liverpool Move’ amid injury crisis
According to a journalist, Arsenal’s midfield transfer target is “open to a move to Liverpool” as the team struggles with an early-season injury crisis.
Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp is currently missing ten players through injury with Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keita, Curtis Jones, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain among those on the treatment table.
As the transfer window comes to an end in few days, Liverpool have been linked with a whole host of midfielders and Ben Jacobs (via The Boot Room) believes that Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans would be prepared to move to Anfield.
“Jurgen Klopp has said if they do bring in a midfielder it will only be because that name brings in long-term quality. Otherwise they will wait.
“What strikes me is I think Liverpool needs to bring in a playmaker, but it is whether that is part of their long-term strategy. There are a variety of midfielders who could be considered by Liverpool.
“One is Youri Tielemans, who would be open to a Liverpool move and I know that because his agent had pushed Liverpool links earlier in windows, particularly in January when the Arsenal links formed.
“Liverpool have always shot down Tielemans links, so if they did move for him, it would be more of a U-turn than a strategy and a lot would depend on the price.”
It remains to be seen if the Reds will move for the Belgian as they look to overcome their current injury issues in the midfield.
