Liverpool Want Sign 22-year-old Midfielder Likened to Javier Mascherano

The Liverpool team we witness today may undergo significant changes come next season.

In the realm of football management, the ethos of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” often takes a back seat as new leaders strive to make their mark swiftly.

The successor to Jurgen Klopp faces a daunting task, inheriting a team with deep-rooted loyalty to its previous leadership.

A strategic blend of honouring the past while steering toward the future is essential, albeit challenging to achieve.

Despite managerial changes, Liverpool’s interest in Porto’s talented defensive midfielder, Alan Varela, remains consistent.

Mirror Sport has likened him to former Liverpool player Javier Mascherano. Arsenal observed his adeptness in marshaling the midfield of the Portuguese giants during their recent Champions League encounter.

According to O Jogo (via Mirror Sport), Liverpool may consider activating the player’s release clause this summer. The outlet also suggests that his value has soared to approximately €70m, despite his initial signing fee being only €8m at the beginning of the season.
