Done deal Liverpool has transfer their talenteds playersnews …

As the end of this season fast approaches, attention is swiftly turning to which players Liverpool will look to target in the upcoming transfer window. A couple of links seemingly show no sign of dying down.

With four midfielders — James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keïta and Arthur Melo — set to depart Anfield in the coming months, it seems inevitable that the Reds will look to bring in reinforcements in this area of the pitch this summer. After an inconsistent season, it is likely that Klopp’s recruitment staff will be keen to add new options in both the ‘number six’ and ‘number eight’ roles in a bid to strengthen the squad.

A number of names have routinely cropped up in recent times, with the likes of Mason Mount and Ryan Gravenberch having been standouts after it emerged that Liverpool would pass on the chance to sign Jude Bellingham. Instead of purchasing the Borussia Dortmund teenager, it is expected that the Reds will bring in multiple reinforcements as opposed to one.

Whether this approach will prove shrewd or flawed will only become clear next season, but what is clear is that speculation over prospective signings will probably persist until the close of the summer window! Below, we bring you two intriguing stories which have emerged in the past day or so…

Liverpool ‘eye’ cut-price midfield option

As aforementioned, it may be deemed by Klopp and his recruitment staff that Liverpool requires an upgrade at the base of midfield, especially given the mixed fortunes of Fabinho this term. One France international could follow the same path as the Brazilian did back in 2018 and swap Monaco for Merseyside.

According to the Daily Mail, defensive midfielder Youssouf Fofana could well be an option for the Reds this summer, with his relatively bargain price of $28m (£22m/€25m) unlikely to put off any potential suitors. The 24-year-old has been impressive for the principality side in recent seasons and could also be of interest to free-spending Chelsea during the off-season. says: Despite Liverpool’s recent upturn in form, there is probably still a conversation to be had regarding whether Klopp should persist with long-serving Fabinho in the ‘number six’ role. There could well be more dynamic options out there and there should be no room for sentiment this summer.

It would not be a major surprise to see Klopp determine that the Brazilian’s race is run at Anfield. With this in mind, a move for Fofana would make a lot of sense, given his experience and quality.

Liverpool target ‘exit clause’ emerges

Rumors linking Brighton & Hove Albion’s Alexis Mac Allister with Liverpool have shown no signs of going away recently, and it seems pretty likely that the World Cup-winning midfielder will depart the Amex in the coming months. It seems even more probable that the Argentine will depart the south coast after the emergence of one key detail in his current contract.

Mac Allister signed a new deal with Brighton prior to the World Cup last winter, but suitors including Liverpool and Manchester United will be boosted by a clause that could allow the star to ‘choose his next club’, according to The Athletic. The Seagulls have let the likes of Ben White and Marc Cucurella leave in recent years, and the 24-year-old may become the latest to depart this summer.

Everything now seems to be pointing towards him making a move to one of the Premier League’s traditional giants this summer as he continues to impress.

It is likely that Brighton sensed that it could be the player’s last season with them, and the contract signed earlier in the campaign may well reflect this. Liverpool must now hope that Mac Allister favors a switch to Anfield.

‘Definitely open to…’ – On-loan Liverpool gem comments on his future as club chief speaks out

On-loan Liverpool defender Sepp van den Berg has commented on his immediate future as his current spell at Schalke 04 nears its conclusion.

The 21-year-old joined the Bundesliga outfit for the duration of 2022/23 last August (LFC official website), and both he and a prominent figure at the Gelsenkirchen club have been speaking out about what they hope will happen next.

As reported by WAZ (via Get Football News Germany), Die Königsblauen want to extend the Dutchman’s loan into a second season.

Their head of licensing Gerald Asamoah said: “Ultimately we have to see how the situation is after the season. We all hope to stay in. Then maybe there’s a chance to persuade Sepp to stay.”

Van den Berg also seems keen on spending another season with Schalke, saying: “In the two games against Bremen and Mainz alone I gained great experience. But the Bundesliga is a great opportunity for me. If Schalke want to keep me, I’m definitely open to staying.”

The defender has seen his campaign ravaged by an ankle ligament injury which kept him out for seven months (Transfermarkt), but he’s made a telling impact for his team since his recent comeback.

His equaliser in his first game back against Werder Bremen paved the way for a last-gasp 2-1 victory, and his side followed that up with a win at Mainz, their third in four games as they put themselves on course to remain in the Bundesliga, having spent much of the season in the relegation zone.

He had started every match for Schalke prior to his injury and came back into the line-up last weekend (Transfermarkt), so opportunities for game-time at the Veltins Arena seem plentiful whenever he’s available.

The same probably couldn’t be said at Liverpool, where the abundance of centre-backs available to Jurgen Klopp has left Nat Phillips a firm fifth in the pecking order, playing just 232 minutes in the current campaign (Transfermarkt).

The manager might be keen to have a look at Van den Berg in pre-season, but it still seems likely that both the defender and his present loan club could get their mutual wish for 2023/24 if the first-team door at Anfield remains shut for the 21-year-old.
