The summer transfer market must be successful for Liverpool if Jurgen Klopp’s team is to improve on the disappointing 2022–23 campaign.
After striking a deal to sign the Argentina international from Brighton earlier this week, Alexis Mac Allister has given supporters hope that the Reds’ midfield deficiencies will soon be fixed.
A direct upgrade to the current Liverpool midfield, Mac Allister comes to Anfield with experience in the Premier League and at the international level. He is likely to enter the starting lineup for the upcoming season.
We’ve looked at the most recent rumors surrounding the Reds, but who else might be moving to Anfield?
James Ward-Prowse of Southampton is reportedly a player Liverpool is interested in acquiring, but they are only willing to pay half of their £50 million asking price.
One of Southampton’s standout players, Ward-Prowse, who was recently relegated with the south coast club, is expected to leave this summer as the team gears up for life in the second tier.
The Reds are ‘willing to play the waiting game’ regarding the 28-year-old, whose contract is good until 2026, according to a Daily Mail report.
According to the report, Liverpool would “be tempted” to pay £25 million to acquire Ward-Prowse, but West Ham and Newcastle are expected to challenge them for his services. In his contract, Ward-Prowse is not protected from relegation.
Gabri Veiga of Celta Vigo has been linked with a plethora of European teams following a standout La Liga campaign. Perhaps his most impressive achievement to date was scoring a brace against Barcelona to keep Celta in the top flight. Some fans questioned whether this would be his last performance for the team.
In recent weeks, Liverpool has become a possible destination for the 21-year-old. According to a recent report, Klopp’s team are “firm favorites” to beat Newcastle United to Veiga.
The young player, who is getting ready to play for Spain in the U-21 Euros, responded to a question about his plans by telling SPORT: “It was a spectacular season, what I did is a dream, and in the club of my life, and I’m happy about it. I’m not thinking about the future right now because I’m focused on the national team. The only thing I can promise is that I’ll make it through the European Championship and win it. “.
Florentino Perez, president of Real Madrid, is optimistic about signing Kylian Mbappe but has acknowledged he does not anticipate a deal to be completed this year.
Mbappe appeared to be on his way to Los Blancos last year, but instead he chose to extend his contract with Paris Saint-Germain. Despite this, it appears that the Spanish powerhouses are still interested in signing the French forward.
Karim Benzema’s recent departure has left a huge gap in Real’s attack, and Mbappe is still the front-runner to fill the position of club talisman.
When approached by a fan in the street, Perez made it clear that he was still interested in the 24-year-old and that he intended to pursue the World Cup champion. The 76-year-old replied, “Yes, but not this year,” when asked if Real would sign Mbappe. ”.
