The Reds midfield has been misfiring this season to say the least. Due to a series of unfortunate injuries to Liverpool’s most creative players in the middle of the park, we have struggled to find the creative spark that a championship winning side needs to have. Naby Keita has always looked bright when he has been fit, looking to carry the ball forward and play quick one-twos on the edge of the box. However, the Guinean midfielder is constantly struggling for match fitness. We need reinforcements in the middle, here are 3 players that could provide flair to the Liverpool midfield.
James Maddison – Leicester City
The English midfielder has been in scintillating form for Leicester City this year. The player has grown in the image of Philippe Coutinho, this is no surprise seeing as both players have been coached by Brendan Rodgers. Maddison would cost a pretty penny but at only 22 years old, he could be a signing to unlock defences for the Liverpool midfield for years to come.
Kai Havertz – Bayer Leverkusen
Just 20 years old, Kai Havertz has taken the Bundesliga by storm. The German midfielder has 2 goals and an assist in 6 games this season, adding to his 17 goals and 3 assists last campaign. Havertz is one of Europe’s hottest properties at the moment, he is sure to be a leading player of his generation and would flourish under Jürgen Klopp, unlocking defences and bursting through them.

Dani Olmo – Dinamo Zagreb
A wildcard suggestion. Olmo is a product of La Masia, Barcelona’s fabled youth academy. The 21 year old Spaniard moved to Zagreb for a clearer path to the first team and the move has paid off. He has notched 2 goals and 2 assists in 2 league games this season, as well as 3 goals and 3 assists in 5 Champions League Qualifying games. He faces Manchester City tomorrow.
