Liverpool: Reds linked with Konrad Laimer move

Liverpool: Reds linked with Konrad Laimer move -Liverpool News

Liverpool are set to battle some fellow European giants for the signing of RB Leipzig midfielder Konrad Laimer this summer, according to a new transfer report.

The Lowdown: Laimer impressing for Leipzig

The 24-year-old is enjoying a good season for the Bundesliga side, proving to be a key figure in the middle of the park. Laimer has chipped in with four goals and four assists in 13 league starts, also registering an 89.6% pass completion rate across five Europa League appearances.

He was once deemed to be the fifth-fastest player in the Bundesliga, using his lightning speed to good use, and he has 20 caps to his name for Austria. In addition, his former Red Bull Salzburg coach Adi Hutter praised him as being “incredibly aggressive on the ball”.

The Latest: Liverpool keen on Laimer

According to Kicker, Liverpool are keen on signing the Leipzig speedster this summer, but they certainly aren’t alone in expressing an interest.

Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund also see the 24-year-old as a potential shrewd signing, as do Tottenham as Antonio Conte looks to build a formidable squad in north London.

The Verdict: Ideal for squad depth

The bonus that Liverpool have right now is that they are arguably the most enticing proposition in Europe, playing wonderful football, winning trophies and being managed by a hugely successful coach in Jurgen Klopp.

For that reason, Laimer could jump at the chance to join the Reds, and he would bring a much-needed freshness and youth to the Reds’ midfield – something which is needed with the likes of James Milner, Jordan Henderson and Thiago all 31 or older.

Furthermore, the Austrian is a versatile footballer who can play in a defensive or central midfield role, as well as out wide, which will surely make him appeal even more to Klopp.
