Reports: Liverpool have made contact to sign two £75million+ midfielders
Liverpool has been connected with a number of talented players to upgrade the center after abandoning their pursuit of Jude Bellingham.
According to the news image below from today’s edition of The Mirror, Jurgen Klopp thinks the team requires substantial surgery and that more acquisitions would be required to strengthen the midfield position.
According to the British media outlet, Liverpool has contacted them about signing Moises Caicedo and Declan Rice.
According to rumors, the Reds and Brighton have discussed signing the Ecuadorian sensation. On the other hand, there have been “discreet inquiries” into the West Ham United play breaker.
The Mirror claim both the midfielders are rated at more than £75million.
Caicedo has been one of the best midfielders in the Premier League this season. The South American has been a consistent pressing machine for the the Seagulls, who are fighting for European places.
He was heavily linked with a move to league leaders, Arsenal, in the winter transfer window. However, Brighton managed to hold on to him and extended his stay until 2027.
Rice has been inconsistent in the current campaign for a struggling West Ham side. However, he has proved his worth as a quality defensive midfielder over the years.
The 24-year-old was a key member of the Three Lions squad that reached the finals of Euro 2020 and the quarter finals at the FIFA World Cup.
Apart from the above mentioned duo, the news source claim that Fulham’s Joao Palhinha is a cheaper option for the Merseysiders. He could cost £40million.
