This is a major undertaking for Liverpool. Reds ‘Set for Summer Overhaul’ as Liverpool Target ‘Three-Pronged’ Squad Renewal – Klopp’s Legacy to Be Rebuilt”.


Liverpool is poised to address three specific positions in the upcoming summer transfer window, but midfield reinforcement is unlikely to be among their priorities, as indicated by a recent report.

The Reds underwent a significant squad overhaul in 2023, with several stalwarts of Jurgen Klopp’s midfield departing the club. While four new players were brought in, Liverpool continues to be linked with additional midfield acquisitions. Although Alexis Mac Allister and Wataru Endo have performed commendably in the deepest midfield roles, Mac Allister is not a traditional holding midfielder, and Endo, at 31, raises speculation about the need for another major signing in that area.

Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich has emerged as a potential target for Liverpool amid uncertainties surrounding his contract, although his former mentor Pep Guardiola is also reportedly interested. Nicolo Barella, another high-profile midfielder, has been linked with the Reds as well.

However, according to journalist Neil Jones, Liverpool appears content with their current midfield options and is more likely to focus on strengthening other positions following Jurgen Klopp’s departure at the end of the season.

In an interview with Footballwave, Jones disclosed that Liverpool’s priorities for the summer transfer window will center around defensive reinforcements and potentially acquiring a new forward, rather than pursuing another marquee midfielder. He expressed skepticism about the rumored links between Liverpool and players like Joshua Kimmich and Nicolo Barella, acknowledging their quality but emphasizing Liverpool’s depth in midfield. With exceptions such as Endo and Thiago Alcantara, who is expected to depart in the summer, Liverpool’s midfield options are predominantly younger players.

Jones highlighted the potential of young talents such as Curtis Jones, Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Harvey Elliott, and Ryan Gravenberch. Additionally, emerging prospects like Stefan Bajcetic and Bobby Clark further strengthen Liverpool’s midfield depth. Given this wealth of young talent, Jones questioned the necessity of pursuing established midfielders like Kimmich, aged 29, or Barella, aged 27.

In Jones’s view, Liverpool’s squad planning for the upcoming summer transfer window will involve fine-tuning rather than overhauling. He noted the satisfaction with the midfield business conducted in the previous summer, suggesting that Liverpool’s attention will shift towards addressing other areas of the squad, such as central defense, full-back positions, and the forward line.
