Liverpool targets two midfielders as Reds drop transfer hint with club guest at Madrid clash
Liverpool are reportedly keeping tabs on Brighton and Hove Albion’s Alexis Mac Allister ahead of a potential summer move.
Carlos Mac Allister, the player’s agent and father, has already experienced life at Anfield thanks to the Reds, who invited him to see the team’s 5-2 defeat to Real Madrid.
Nevertheless, a move for the Argentine “would not be in lieu of Mason Mount of Chelsea,” according to Jacque Talbot at Football Transfers.
The assumption probably motivating the recruiting staff was that two midfielders joining during the summer window would be sufficient to steer the ship in the correct direction. Jordan Henderson was signed to a relatively long-term contract, while Fabinho is just 29 years old.
However, with the pair’s form about as up and down as Mercedes in the early stages of the 2022 season – not to mention the fact that as many as three midfielders could be saying their goodbyes once their contracts expire this year – a revaluation of our needs is evidently taking place.
It’s telling as the scale of their woes that even three new midfield additions may not be seen as enough to take us back to the lofty heights of the Jurgen Klopp era.
Regardless of questions around the backline, you’ll find few complaints in the fanbase if the club is given the tools to go out and secure three new quality additions to their struggling department.
