Melissa Reddy on Liverpool’s midfield issues: Is the transfer window the solution or something else?

In the build-up to equalling the Premier League record for the biggest-ever victory, Jurgen Klopp had admitted his public stance on not needing to solve Liverpool’s midfield issues in the transfer market was incorrect. 

While the 9-0 annihilation of Bournemouth was most welcome, highlighting the professional pride and fight in his side’s reaction to a rocky start to the season, accommodating opponents will not sway the fact the Merseysiders need to strengthen in that department.

Liverpool are measured on recruitment matters, and just as they do not allow one defeat or injury to shift the course of their thinking, neither will one victory – however mammoth.


Even Klopp’s admission that buying a midfielder is the smart move is not reactive, it had been the initial plan before being shelved as primary targets were unattainable.Real Madrid snared Aurelien Tchouameni in a €100 million deal that was not financially practical for Liverpool, before factoring in personal terms.

Bayern Munich muscled in on Ryan Gravenberch, gaining assurances from him – as they did with Sadio Mane – long before the rest of Europe’s elite switched on.

Liverpool have kept a watching brief on Enzo Fernandez, who swapped River Plate for Benfica to continue his development and if Jude Bellingham was on the market this summer, they would’ve been front and centre in discussions.
