Why we need a midfielder

The Reds have lost a massively important member of the squad this summer.

Gini Wijnaldum has left the Reds on a free transfer, the Dutchman has joined PSG.

During his five years at the club he became undroppable for Jürgen Klopp.

The Dutchman rarely missed a Premier League game across his five seasons.

When you consider the injury records of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson, having a player as reliable as Gini Wijnaldum is key.

His departure means we are in urgent need of a replacement in the middle.

Liverpool and Youri Tielemans claim

Throughout the summer the Reds have been linked with Leicester’s midfield maestro.

Voetbal24 recently claimed Liverpool want to sign Youri Tielemans but would have to pay £64m. The player was said to be desperate to join.

However, The Telegraph has reported that Tielemans is not a target for the Reds this summer.

The outlet states that Jürgen Klopp is an admirer of the Belgian but the sum required to bring him to Anfield is unrealistic.

What RTK has to say

Liverpool signing Youri Tielemans never seemed to be on the cards.

He is a fantastic player and Leicester are all too aware of that.

The Foxes will fight tooth and nail to keep him this summer and they appear set to hand him a bumper new contract in order to do so.

As ever, in Michael Edwards we trust. He’ll get the right man eventually.
