Report: Liverpool want to sign ‘one of the fastest midfielders’ around as well as Mac Allister

Liverpool are keen on signing yet more midfielders after they finalise a deal for Alexis Mac Allister, with Wolves’ Matheus Nunes still a name of interest.

There was talk back in January that Nunes is a player who Liverpool have a lot of admiration for. However, there was never any concrete bids and Nunes has remained at Molineux.

But according to ESPN, the interest from Liverpool has not gone away and he remains a player of interest to Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds are believed to be close to landing Mac Allister from Brighton. Multiple reports suggest a deal is all but done, although nothing official has filtered through just yet.

But as well as Mac Allister, the Reds are keen on adding more. And according to ESPN, Nunes is one of the players FSG and Klopp are looking closely at.

Nunes is mentioned alongside names we’ve covered in the last few days such as Khephren Thuram and Manu Kone.

The Wolves midfield would cost more than £40m if they did want to entertain a sale. Described as being one the fastest midfielders in the league by Ruben Neves, Nunes has quietly gone about his business since signing for Wolves.

RTK’s View: A name that won’t go away

Make of this what you will, but Matheus Nunes remains a player who keeps getting a mention when it comes to Liverpool.

We all know the Mac Allister deal is going to get done now and attentions seem to turning to who might follow him through the Anfield door.

Nunes is a player we’ve coveted for some time. But whether or not Wolves will sell, remains another matter entirely.

Clearly, Nunes is a midfielder who Klopp can’t stop bringing up to the board. And eventually, we might just see a concrete offer go in to test the waters over at Molineux.

Liverpool set to complete deal for 24-year-old midfielder for less than £45 million

Liverpool and Brighton & Hove Albion have sealed the agreement for Alexis Mac Allister over a deal worth less than £45 million.

According to reputed Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Alexis Mac Allister is on the verge of joining Liverpool. The Reds have reached a full agreement with Brighton & Hove Albion. And they will pay less than £45 million to land the 24-year-old midfielder. Meanwhile, Liverpool should complete the deal this week.

Alexis Mac Allister has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League during his stint with Brighton & Hove Albion. The Argentine international joined the Seagulls from Argentinos Juniors in January 2019. But he had to bide his time before becoming a regular for Brighton.

Meanwhile, Mac Allister has tasted success on the international stage, winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup with Argentina. And he has enjoyed an excellent 2022/23 season, amassing 12 goals and three assists in 40 appearances. Mac Allister’s progress at the Amex Stadium has not gone unnoticed either. And the player will soon move to Liverpool in the summer transfer window.

Liverpool will head into the summer transfer window knowing they need to invest heavily in the midfield unit. The Reds are losing James Milner, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as free agents. In addition, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho’s performance levels plummeted in the 2022/23 season.

And Fabrizio Romano has claimed that the release clause is much less than the reported £45 million. That makes it a bargain transfer for the Merseyside club.
