At Liverpool, manager Jurgen Klopp currently has a whole host of quality midfielders to choose from when selecting his starting line-up.
On top of regular starters Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner, the German can also call upon new signings Naby Keita and Fabinho among others.
However, in the near future, Klopp could yet look to strengthen that area of the squad even further.
According to Mundo Deportivo (via HITC), Liverpool are leading the race for Paris-Saint Germain’s Adrien Rabiot and have made an offer for the Frenchman, whose contract at the Parc des Princes is set to expire next summer.
On a free transfer and considering his calibre, £45m-rated (via Transfermarkt) Rabiot could be a shrewd acquisition for the Reds.
But with their midfield currently stacked, it may be an unnecessary one. And if for whatever reason Klopp is keen on bringing in another man for the middle of the park, then the former Borussia Dortmund manager may be better served looking at a different profile of midfielder to the France international.
Going forward, Liverpool might need a more creative figure for that area of the pitch. In that sense, Rabiot, who is more effective at retaining possession rather than playing a defence-splitting pass, is not the answer.
