Klopp reportedly ‘desperate’ to land midfielder as Liverpool plot move

The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for a few more signings before the end of the summer…

The Reds have enjoyed a strong summer, though their draw with Watford on the opening day proved that there is still a lot of work for Jurgen Klopp to do.

Still, they are now one step closer to the Champions League after defeating Hoffenheim on Tuesday night, with expectations still high for the coming season.

Jurgen Klopp will be keen to ensure that his side impresses this season, and according to Diario Gol, he is keen to land one of Europe’s best players in an effort to reach his goals. Diario Gol report that Liverpool are keen on Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic, with Jurgen Klopp reportedly ‘desperate’ to land him.

There could be an opening for an exit for the Croation, with the recent arrival of Paulinho at Barcelona arguably putting his place in the midfield at risk.

For Liverpool, he would undoubtedly be a starter, and so Anfield could be an attractive option for him.

Landlord’s Verdict

Ivan Rakitic is undoubtedly one of Europe’s best, having anchoredĀ Barcelona’s attack for the last few years.

His role is undoubtedly under threat, though he may well start ahead of new arrival Paulinho – at the beginning at least. At Liverpool, though, he would become one of the stars of the team, so a move could be tempting.

He would be a fantastic signing, giving the Reds some real creativity from the heart of the midfield alongside the likes of Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson.
