Liverpool fans are still hoping for additions before the window closes. The Reds are shy of numbers in the midfield and the final third. We could still see movement before the window closes. According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool are interested in Noni Madueke.
Who is Noni Madueke?
19-year-old winger Noni Madueke plies his trade at PSV Eindhoven.
The Barnet born youngster came through the ranks at the Spurs academy, making his U18s debut at just 15-years-old before agreeing a move to the Netherlands in 2018.
Last season was something of a breakthrough campaign for the Englishman.
Madueke started seven and made 17 sub appearances for PSV.
In the process he netted seven and assisted four, claiming three Man of the Match awards.
This term he’s bagged two goals from one start and one sub appearance.
Known for his close dribbling ability and eye for a final pass he is also a strong finisher.
Liverpool want Noni Madueke
Naturally, the youngster is attracting attention from a range of clubs.
He’s young, full of potential and English; the perfect storm for a transfer saga.
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool are interested in Noni Madueke.
The outlet claims the Reds are among a host of sides chasing the youngster with Manchester United and Spurs also intrigued.
The report goes on to state that PSV value the teenager at around £34m but would like to keep ahold of him for another year.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool moving for Madueke would make plenty of sense.
He won’t expect to be a starter immediately and wouldn’t command a massive pay packet.
Aidy Boothroyd referred to the youngster as ‘very talented’, previously comparing him to Phil Foden in that he was a relative unknown before an England youth call up helped him make a name for himself.
At £34m he could prove a bargain in a few years’ time, though we expect Michael Edwards could negotiate a lower fee.
