With the midfield always being a painful problem in recent seasons, coach Jurgen Klopp has reason to focus on upgrading this line.
During the summer transfer window, Liverpool signed players such as Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch. Previously available players include Thiago Alcantara, Harvey Elliott, Curtis Jones and Stefan Bajcetic.
However, according to Simon Phillips, Liverpool still wants the services of Conor Gallagher – the player is compared to the new N’Golo Kante.
The 23-year-old versatile midfielder is capable of playing as a central midfielder, attacking midfielder and defensive midfielder. This season, Callagher played very well and became a mainstay for Chelsea.
In 56 appearances in all competitions for the Blues, Gallagher has 3 goals. He contributed 2 assists after 11 appearances this season.
Gallagher is expected to sit down with the Blues to discuss a new contract that will last longer than the current contract, which expires in 2025. That is why Liverpool wants to lure Gallagher to Anfield.
