Liverpool’s next signing is the 22-year-old star midfielder as Jurgen Klopp begins a midfield overhaul.
Jurgen Klopp’s aim in the summer transfer window has been to sort things out in his midfield and with Alexis McAllister almost done, the German manager is eyeing a move for the 22-year-old Ligue 1 star.
Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Manu Kone and Nice midfielder Khefren Thuram have been the two midfielders linked with a move to Anfield in recent weeks, and according to transfer reporter Jacques Talbot, the Reds will look to sign both stars, but the latter is more likely. , than the first.
Speaking to Empire of the Kop, Talbot said: there may be an intention to get both and then it turns out to be one or neither.
“But I would certainly give a lot more credence to Thuram coming in than Kone at the moment because I think other Premier League clubs could be looking at Kone. But, of course, both. I don’t think it will be if they sign Turami and don’t go for Kone, I think it will be both.”
Together with McAllister, these two players will give Liverpool’s midfield a younger look and together they will represent the future of the team.
At just 22 years old, Klopp will have time to help both players grow and give them time to earn a place in the starting line-up, but it seems the Nice star is the most likely to make the move to Anfield.
Given Fabinho’s decline, Thuram could be a significant signing for Liverpool next season.
The Frenchman’s physical skills could be a game-changer for Klopp’s side as they look to regain top spot in the Premier League.
