The 20-year-old has recently made a name for himself after turning in promising performances at the Estadio Municipal de Balados this season, where he scored nine goals and recorded four assists in 32 La Liga appearances.
It has been claimed in the past that Arsenal is interested in signing the young midfielder to strengthen their engine room at the end of this season as a result of the midfielder’s impressive performances for Celta. Veiga is reportedly eager to play for Mikel Arteta and is encouraged by Arsenal’s interest.
TEAMtalk claims that Liverpool is ‘pushing’ hard to sign Veiga and is prepared to activate the young player’s £35 million release clause.
According to the report, Liverpool are now in “pole position” to sign the midfielder, so it appears they will defeat Arsenal in this race.
The fact that Liverpool wants to upgrade their midfield in the summer and is prepared to spend up to three midfielders on the market is an open secret. Mason Mount, Alexis Mac Allister, and Ryan Gravenberch were mentioned as their top targets prior to the summer window, but Veiga is now emerging as a viable option.
The 20-year-old prefers to play the box-to-box position but can also be used as an attacking midfielder. He is proficient technically, has a keen eye for long-range goals, can set up chances for the attackers, can dribble past defenders on the other team in confined spaces, and can also help on defense.
Veiga is a very gifted player who has the ability to develop into a top-tier midfielder in the future. He would therefore be a great addition to Liverpool or Arsenal, should they be able to sign him this summer.
Liverpool have no plans to bring back the former UCL winner who left last season
The summer transfer of Sadio Mane is not something Liverpool plans to do.
According to Football Insider, Klopp will not pursue Mane, who he sold to Bayern Munich last summer.
The Senegal international, according to the same report, is currently dissatisfied with the Bundesliga club and may leave during the ensuing transfer window.
The 31-year-old won numerous awards during his time with the Reds, including the Premier League and the Champions League.
The winger has played 24 league games since moving to the nation’s capital and has contributed seven goals and five assists.
It would have been challenging to imagine the former player fitting in at Liverpool, which has a number of strong wide attackers.
It would be best for Klopp to focus on finding some new talent rather than trying to coordinate a potential reunion with former stars if he wanted to expand his options this summer.
Although a return to Anfield may have been pleasant, all good things must come to an end. Mane will be remembered for his time there as a club legend.
I concur with Klopp that if you leave the team on your own terms, there is no going back. Because he was dissatisfied, Mane left.
