Klopp could secure his next Coutinho in Liverpool swoop to sign £87m “elite talent” - opinion


Liverpool have enjoyed a strong start to the 2023/24 Premier League season, as Jurgen Klopp’s side bid to find their way back into the top four after last term's shortcomings.

There was some premature anxiety going into the new campaign after the Reds endured a patch of rejection during the summer transfer window, in which three defensive midfielders opted against relocating to Merseyside.

Andre Trindade opted to remain in Brazil to complete the season with Fluminense, while Romeo Lavia and Moises Caicedo preferred Chelsea, leaving Klopp in a position to expand his search for midfield reinforcements.

Liverpool concluded the summer having welcomed Dominik Szboszlai, Alexis Mac Allister, Ryan Gravenberch, and Wataru Endo as part of a rebuild in the engine room, however, with the January window looming, the Reds are expected to make further moves.

Reports in the media have linked a host of talent to Anfield already as the countdown begins to the opening of the winter window, with some high-profile names suspected to be of interest to Klopp.

After knocking on the door of Fluminense in the summer, Liverpool were told that Andre would not be available due to his, and the club's, desire to complete the season together.

The Brazilian campaign traditionally ends in December, with reports suggesting that the Premier League outfit could delve back into the idea of signing the highly-rated 22-year-old.

With a release clause of £34m, the combative midfielder could be an additional option for Klopp to integrate into his side.

In the more advanced areas of midfield, the Reds have also been linked with a sensational move for Bayern Munich sensation, Jamal Musiala, who could make a shock return to England four years after his exit from Chelsea’s academy.

A report from BILD in Germany claims that the attacking midfielder is on Klopp’s list to bring to Anfield, with his price tag expected to be in the region of €100m (£87m).

Only time will tell how serious the Merseyside giants are about capturing the 20-year-old’s signature, with Bayern not expected to let their star leave easily after his blockbuster breakthrough over the past few years.
