Liverpool: Reds monitoring Amadou Haidara

Liverpool: Reds monitoring Amadou Haidara -Liverpool News

Liverpool are monitoring RB Leipzig midfielder Amadou Haidara for a potential transfer swoop, according to a new report.

The Lowdown: Liverpool targeting midfielder

There has been no shortage of midfielders linked with moves to Liverpool, though it now appears as though they could be set to wait until the summer before launching bids for the likes of Jude Bellingham and Matheus Nunes.

The need for a new option in the engine room stems from the fact that James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all have their contracts up at the end of the season, and Haidara is now emerging as a potential replacement.

The Latest: Monitoring Haidara…

According to a report from The Independent, Brighton & Hove Albion have had an offer rejected for the central midfielder, with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United also said to be monitoring the situation.

The report goes on to say that the 24-year-old has a clause in his contract which means he can leave in the summer, at which point there is anticipated to be increased interest in his services.

The Verdict: Get it done?

Once lauded as ‘absolutely exceptional’ by former Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick (via Bundesliga), the maestro is a well-rounded player, competent in both his attacking and defensive duties, as indicated by the fact he ranks in the 80th percentile for assists and 76th percentile for tackles per 90 in the past year.

Reds fans, do you remember how many players Liverpool signed last summer?

However, it is highly questionable whether the Mali international would be good enough to make the step up to Liverpool, given that he is ranked by SofaScore as the second-worst performer in the Leipzig squad this season, averaging a 6.56 match rating.

Haidara is no match for Bellingham, ranking lower in terms of goals, assists and dribbles completed per 90, and so Jurgen Klopp should prioritise the signing of the Englishman, rather than spending some of his limited budget on an inferior player.
