Liverpool fans are expecting the Reds to move for a midfielder this summer. Some of our midfield are getting on in years and one key member of the squad has departed. Liverpool have been linked with a move for Franck Kessie and fans are ecstatic.
We can’t pretend that the Liverpool midfield is exactly stacked with talent at the moment.
Well, let’s rephrase, we can’t pretend that the Liverpool midfield is stacked with reliable talent.
Jürgen Klopp has some fantastic midfielders at his disposal but injuries keep piling up.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita have struggled for fitness in recent years.
Meanwhile Jordan Henderson’s injury woes are worsening.
The most reliable midfielder we had, Gini Wijnaldum, has signed for PSG on a free transfer. He needs replacing.
Liverpool want Franck Kessie
This summer the Reds simply have to bring a midfielder in.
According to reports in Italy, Liverpool are looking at Franck Kessie.
Gazzetta Dello Sport has claimed the Reds are keen on the Ivorian midfielder as he enters the final year of his deal at AC Milan.
Just 24-years-old and boasting heaps of top flight experience he appears the ideal option.
Last term he netted 13 goals in the Serie A, not a bad tally for a defensive midfielder.
His signing would entirely fit the FSG philosophy with his age meaning that he could replace Gini Wijnaldum immediately and Jordan Henderson in teh future.
