Liverpool are weighing up the possibility of strengthening their midfield further ahead of the summer transfer window, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Last year’s window was a positive one at Anfield, as Jurgen Klopp focused exclusively on bolstering his midfield, following big issues in that area of the pitch.

In the end, Liverpool made four additions in the middle of the park, with Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch all arriving.

Mac Allister has been particularly excellent, standing out as one of Liverpool’s star men this season, but they have all done their bit for the cause.

While the Reds’ midfield now looks well-stocked, with the likes of Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones also strong options, Romano told Give Me Sport that another midfielder could come in this summer:

“For the midfield, let’s see – at the moment, it is still not decided. Obviously they’re always attentive to the market, but we also know that Liverpool don’t like to sign too many players in one single transfer window.

“So that could be a possibility to bring in a new midfielder, but it’s not something 100 per cent decided just yet.”

Our thoughts on Liverpool buying another midfielder…

Liverpool have a plethora of excellent options in midfield now, particularly in more attack-minded roles, but an elite-level No.6 should be looked at in the coming months.

Endo was superb for a spell earlier in the campaign but has limitations – the Japanese is also 31 now – while Mac Allister has done a job there but looks far happier as a No.8.

The signing of Fabinho back in 2018 was a game-changing moment for Klopp’s team, with the Brazilian making such a difference at the heart of the midfield, and bringing in a similar calibre of player should be seen as priority business.

Finding such a formidable footballer in that position won’t be easy, but if the likes of Arne Slot, Michael Edwards and Richard Hughes can working together in snapping up an ideal candidate in that role, it could be significant moving forward.

Not signing a midfielder this summer wouldn’t necessarily be a disaster, but it would feel like a big risk, given Endo’s age and Mac Allister not always looking entirely comfortable sitting deep.
