Pundit shares transfer truth on Konrad Laimer move & Jurgen Klopp suspicion

Neil Jones has claimed that it was likely When mentioning a transfer target prior to the transfer window closing, Jurgen Klopp was referring to Konrad Laimer and not Aurelien Tchouameni.

Late in the transfer window, the Merseysiders were interested in the RB Leipzig star but were unable to complete a deal for the 25-year-old.

“I think it was Konrad Laimer he was talking about. I did report that the day before the window closed that Liverpool had given up on Laimer.

“He ticked a lot of boxes,” the reporter told Redmen TV (via HITC).

“He had a year left on his contract so it all fed into this. I don’t think he was target number one, two or three in the summer, but as it developed they thought it could be a nice little deal and a deal that works and he may have been cheap enough to justify it.

“His agent had a relationship with Keita and Mane so there was a lot of parts to it, but the vibe was that Leipzig weren’t after selling him and the player himself had decided to sit on his contract and join Bayern next summer.”

Uncomfortable with the status of our alternatives in the middle of the park, a number of Liverpool supporters have expressed their dissatisfaction with the lack of midfield reinforcements beyond loan acquisition Arthur Melo.

All things considered, it is evident that the recruitment team made a concerted effort to find a quality midfield addition.

The extent of this effort can be disputed depending on which reports we should believe.

Moves were made for Tchoumeni, and inquiries for Jude Bellingham were made to Borussia Dortmund.

It does feel like we are placing all of our eggs in one basket given the narrow pool of candidates Klopp is willing to see join the club.
