Journalist Reveals When Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp Will Move For A Midfielder

Journalist James Pearce has confirmed that Jurgen Klopp is prepared to wait for the ‘right midfielder at the right price’ instead of settling for his ‘second-best’ option.

Klopp has received some pressure from the Liverpool fanbase to attempt to sign a player in the middle of the park this summer. 

After acquiring Darwin Nunez for £85 million and adding youngsters Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsay, expectations were that the Merseyside club would then turn their attentions to bolstering an ageing midfield.

Thiago Alcantara, Jordan Henderson and James Milner are all on the wrong side of 30, while Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have just a year remaining on their current deals. 

This has sparked links to the likes of Nicolo Barella and Jude Bellingham, but Pearce claims that the German boss is willing to be patient in the market.

Writing for the Athletic, the Reds reporter said: “The Anfield hierarchy have indicated that’s likely to be it in terms of incomings. Klopp is happy with what he’s got. The club’s priorities in the transfer market have already been addressed by new sporting director Julian Ward.

“However, there is one remaining area of the squad that could arguably still do with being strengthened.

“A year ago, many supporters were concerned when Georginio Wijnaldum wasn’t replaced following his departure on a free transfer to Paris Saint-Germain."

"Now, a similar debate is raging about Klopp’s midfield options" 

“Liverpool’s stance was vindicated last summer as they embarked on a remarkable campaign which saw them win both domestic cups and narrowly miss out on both Premier League and Champions League glory."

"The question is: can they hit those heights again without some fresh blood in the centre of the park?"

“For Klopp and Ward, it’s a case of finding the right midfielder at the right price rather than settling for second-best or a stop-gap. As a result, they are prepared to wait until 2023 unless an attractive proposition emerges in the coming weeks.”

This policy is another example of Liverpool being run very well.

Not rushing to sign a player that isn’t your first choice and wasn’t part of the plan.
