Liverpool are reportedly interested in completing a deadline day move for Inter Milan and Croatia midfielder Marcelo Brozovic.
The Lowdown: Wijnaldum replacement needed?
Gini Wijnaldum joined Paris Saint-Germain earlier on in the summer, but the Reds are yet to replace the Dutchman in the middle of the park.
Granted, Harvey Elliott has come in and shone, while Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are back fit, but a new signing wouldn’t go amiss.
The Latest: Liverpool want Brozovic
The Verdict: Hard to see happening
In truth, it is hard to see Brozovic making the move to Anfield, considering that he turns 29 later this year and therefore doesn’t represent a long-term signing.
Liverpool look well-stocked in midfield despite Wijnaldum’s exit – Elliott’s emergence has helped hugely in that respect – and they should be looking to add another attacker instead.
Last Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Chelsea highlighted the need for a greater goal threat in the final third from the substitutes’ bench as Jurgen Klopp’s men ran out of ideas against 10 men.
In other news, some Liverpool fans are desperate for the Reds to sign one player. Find out who it is here.
