Liverpool have been linked with a number of midfielders this summer. The Reds have big shoes to fill in the middle and one man has plenty of fans and pundits talking. Gabriel Agbonlahor has backed Liverpool to sign Youri Tielemans this summer.
Liverpool lose Gini Wijnaldum
After five years establishing himself as a Liverpool icon, Gini Wijnaldum will leave the Reds this summer.
The Dutchman has become an integral part of the midfield during his stay at Anfield.
He’s racked up an incredible amount of minutes under Jürgen Klopp, rarely missing a game over the years.
Liverpool need to replace the midfielder this summer, his presence will be sorely missed.
Gabriel Agbonlahor on Liverpool and Youri Tielemans
Het Nieuwsblad in Belgium have claimed that Liverpool want to sign Youri Tielemans this summer.
The 24-year-old Belgian Red Devils star had a standout season for Leicester City and would be a logical replacement for Gini Wijnaldum.
Speaking to Football Insider, Gabriel Agbonlahor backed the Reds to make the move:
“He’s a great player and Liverpool definitely need to replace Wijnaldum. I thought they needed another midfielder even if Wijnaldum had stayed.
“It’s definitely something Liverpool need to get over the line.
“I just don’t see Leicester letting him go though, even if the player wanted to go. I don’t see Leicester letting any of their better players go.”
What RTK has to say
The ex-Aston Villa star shares our opinion that the Reds need to bring in a successor for Gini.
We would be over the moon if Liverpool landed Tielemans we would be right up there next season.
However, he won’t come cheap and we don’t tend to spend big when there’s cheaper alternatives out there.
