Report: Liverpool is seriously considering signing one of the best midfielders in the world…



Liverpool is showing genuine interest in acquiring the services of a top-tier midfielder on the global stage.


Liverpool is reportedly considering the acquisition of a top-tier midfielder, who is attracting attention from several top clubs in Europe.


Since Arne Slot took charge at Liverpool, the club has undergone a significant midfield transformation during Jurgen Klopp’s final major transfer window.


Key players such as Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita, and James Milner have departed, leaving behind a void in the midfield that needs to be filled.


As a result, Liverpool has welcomed new faces like Dominik Szoboszlai, Alexis Mac Allister, Ryan Gravenberch, and Wataru Endo to kickstart their promising careers at the club.


It would come as quite unexpected if Liverpool were to prioritize signing a central midfielder during this transfer window, but exceptional talents are sometimes impossible to overlook.


With the possibility of Sepp van den Berg filling Slot’s center-back position, it’s possible that resources have become available for other pursuits.


While transfer activity has been minimal at Anfield so far this summer, it is anticipated that plans will now accelerate with only around seven weeks left in the window.


Liverpool is reportedly in talks to sign Benfica midfielder Joao Neves this summer, according to Portuguese source O Jogo.


The 19-year-old, who recently made his debut for Portugal at Euro 2024, is catching the eye of top clubs like Liverpool and Manchester United.


Neves is already being hailed as one of the best midfielders in the world, making him a highly sought-after talent in the transfer market.


It would come as a surprise if Slot and his team decided to invest such a significant amount to strengthen an already well-equipped area of their squad. However, Neves has the potential to become a key player in the new Slot era.


Liverpool supporters may argue that the funds could be better utilized elsewhere, possibly towards acquiring a new wide-forward.


On a related note, Juventus’ Federico Chiesa is a name that comes to mind, as reports suggest he is keen on leaving Italy this summer.


Alternatively, Liverpool could consider taking a risk on Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Pedro Neto, despite concerns about his injury record.


It will be interesting to see where Slot thinks his new team needs to improve, given that Klopp left it in such great shape.
