Liverpool performs far worse than what we are used to this season. Klopp’s players seem tired and unable to reach their standards, with the team currently out of any European competition next season. A great explanation is the lack of midfield options, the cornerstone of Klopp’s success. He always demanded much from players such as Henderson, Fabinho and Wijnaldum, but at this point Thiago, Keita and Chamberlain are frequently sidelined, while the skipper and the Brazilian look like their best days belong in the past.
The German manager stated that the team will spend this summer, especially to erase all the problems in this specific area. The young sensation, Jude Bellingham, is the ardent desire of the club and fans, but his price combined with the team’s inability to reach the top-4 next season, means that the situation is very complex. So Klopp searches the market for other solutions.
On the top of his list is Aurelien Tchouameni. The 2022 Champions League winner and the World Cup finalist is magnificent for Real Madrid. Klopp wanted him before he moved to Madrid but the Merengues paid 70 million pounds fast. Liverpool is ready to pay the same amount of money as there are minor concerns regarding his adaptation in Spain. Klopp would love to have such a young and talented player in his squad, but the Real Madrid board is not sure if they want him to leave.
Another name that is reported to be favoured by the Reds is Nicolo Barella. Inter’s midfielder is linked with a move away from the team at the end of the season, as his performances are a bit disappointing this season. Klopp thinks that Barella would be a great replacement for Keita’s departure, using a bit of creativity in the area, something that he missed much this season. The price (almost 44 million pounds) could become a bargain long term, as the 25-year-old player has many to prove. The only problem is that Chelsea is also interested in him, as Boehly still tries to find a countable replacement for Jorginho, who left in January.
