“Ready to do business”- Liverpool told to come get star midfielder in January transfer market
Bundesliga club ready to sell star midfielder to Liverpool in January
According to a recent rumor, Konrad Laimer, who was being targeted by Liverpool, will be available to sign in January.
Liverpool’s season has gotten off to a terrible start. The Reds are currently in sixth place and are currently seven points behind Tottenham in the race for the last Champions League spot.
In fact, Jurgen Klopp’s usual tireless midfield has been especially sluggish and out of touch.
Laimer is out of contract at Leipzig at the end of the season and the Bundesliga club are reportedly keen to sell him in January for a fee rather lose him for free next summer.
Transfer expert Graeme Bailey told Team Talk: “One name very much in contention is Konrad Laimer.
“The Austrian saw a move to Bayern Munich fall through, but now he very much has his options open. He is out of contract in the summer and RB Leipzig are ready to do business.
“He has just returned from injury and will be fully fit for the season re-start, and Liverpool do like him.”
Laimer has been a key player for Leipzig since 2017, when he joined the Bundesliga club from sister club RB Salzburg.
