Latest Liverpool transfer news from Newsnow Liverpool as the Reds could explore the January window for a new midfielder with target ready for move.
What’s the Latest Liverpool Transfer News?
Liverpool secured the signings of Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Ryan Gravenberch, and Wataru Endo in the summer transfer window. However, there are talks of another midfielder possibly joining them in January.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are having an impressive season. They are in the race for four significant titles. If they manage to defeat Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday, they will lead the Premier League table on Christmas Day. Furthermore, their recent performance saw them progress to the Europa League round of 16 and secure a spot in the Carabao Cup semi-finals after a convincing 5-1 victory over West Ham.
While Liverpool’s journey in the FA Cup presents challenges, with a third-round match against Arsenal looming, they remain contenders. Given the current form and challenges, Klopp might consider bolstering his squad in the upcoming January transfer window. Keeping that in mind, here are the latest news headlines from the Liverpool side of Merseyside…
Barella to Liverpool Transfer News
Liverpool are reportedly interested in securing the services of Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella, as stated by Fichajes. Despite being contracted until June 2026, the 26-year-old faces challenges in reaching a new agreement with Inter due to Premier League clubs showing interest.
Apart from Liverpool, both Chelsea and Newcastle are also in the race for Barella. His contributions were pivotal in Italy’s Euro 2021 victory.
Furthermore, Barella boasts an impressive track record with Inter, having clinched five trophies, including the Serie A title three seasons ago, and aiding the club’s journey to the previous season’s Champions League final.
Recognised for his outstanding performances, Barella was honored with Serie A’s Best Midfielder award last season and has twice been nominated for the Ballon d’Or.
The midfielder, previously linked to clubs like Como and Cagliari, joined Inter from the latter in July 2019, initially on a loan deal. His current market value is estimated at approximately £65 million.
Andre Trindade to Liverpool Transfer News
Brazilian midfielder Andre is set for a move to Europe, as reported by ESPN. The 22-year-old, having earned four international caps, declined a transfer to Liverpool earlier this year.
His decision was influenced by his desire to assist Fluminense in winning the Copa Libertadores and advancing to the Club World Cup final. Fluminense is scheduled to face Manchester City in the final match of this tournament on Friday.
Reports suggest that Liverpool’s pursuit of Andre has diminished, especially after they signed Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Ryan Gravenberch, and Wataru Endo in the summer. It appears that Liverpool are not in the market for a midfielder, including Barella, this coming January.
Jarrod Bowen to Liverpool Transfer News
Klopp recently expressed admiration for West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen, stating that he is “probably my favourite player besides all my players.” This comes as Liverpool gears up for their upcoming match on Wednesday. Notably, the only goal conceded by Klopp’s team in the quarter-final was a beautiful curling effort from Bowen.
At 27 years old, Bowen has garnered attention and was previously seen as a potential successor to Mohamed Salah. The future of the 31-year-old Salah at Liverpool remains uncertain, with Al-Ittihad showing interest and possibly making another bid in January. It’s worth noting that the Saudi club had a £150m offer turned down during the summer transfer window.
While Liverpool rejected Al-Ittihad’s previous bid, they might reconsider if the circumstances are right. Klopp’s recent praise for Bowen has further fueled speculations. However, any potential deal in January would require extraordinary circumstances.
