Liverpool spent a lot of time in the transfer market to upgrade their midfield. Therefore, their plan to add personnel to the defense line was delayed.
Coach Jurgen Klopp wants to add at least one left-handed midfielder to stabilize the situation. Statistics show that Liverpool is the only team in the top 6 that does not own such a midfielder.
The Kop are interested in West Ham’s Nayef Aguerd, but they have raised questions about this name’s long-term service. Therefore, younger options have been considered, with the target being Ajax’s Jorrel Hato.
But once again, Liverpool also expressed concern about a large investment in a relatively inexperienced player.
For that reason, according to sources from Anfield Watch, the Merseyside team has turned to a safer plan called Goncalo Inacio. They plan to promote negotiations with Sporting Lisbon in January to find a way to recruit this midfielder.
The 21-year-old star has experience playing in the Champions League and has also established himself in the Portuguese national team. However, The Kop may have to spend 60 million euros to activate the release clause of his contract.
