Liverpool to Try Again for ‘Outstanding’ Premier League Midfielder This Summer, After Coming Close Before

Liverpool appear to be intensifying their efforts in assembling the first playing squad post-Jurgen Klopp era.

Recent off-pitch appointments have sparked discussions regarding potential on-pitch acquisitions. Recent reports have linked Liverpool to players such as Omar Marmoush and Rayan Ait-Nouri.

According to Spanish outlet AS, Liverpool are poised to revive their interest in Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes.

It is claimed that Liverpool had previously attempted to secure the signature of the midfielder and are expected to make another bid during the upcoming summer transfer window.

However, Liverpool face competition in their pursuit of Bruno. Manchester City are reportedly the frontrunner in attempting to lure the Brazilian away from St James’ Park, with Manchester United and Chelsea also mentioned as potential contenders.

Any club interested in signing Bruno will allegedly need to meet the £100m release clause stated in his contract.

Liverpool Will Try Again for Bruno Guimaraes

Liverpool’s interest in Bruno has been ongoing for some time now. Reports even surfaced last summer suggesting that the Reds had made a late bid to Newcastle for his services. Despite this, recent reports indicate that Liverpool have initiated contact with Bruno regarding a potential move to Anfield.

Amid speculation that Bruno is eager to depart Newcastle in the next transfer window, it appears increasingly likely that he will leave at the conclusion of season. Such a departure would deal a significant blow to Newcastle, as Bruno has been a pivotal figure for them since his arrival from Lyon in January 2022.

Bruno’s consistent performances in both the Premier League and European competitions have earned him praise from his manager, Eddie Howe, who labeled him as ‘outstanding’ according to Sky Sports. However, given Newcastle’s unlikely prospects of qualifying for European tournaments next season, they are compelled to generate funds.

Consequently, selling one of their top assets appears to be their primary recourse. While there may be preferences for other players like Alexander Isak, Bruno is arguably Newcastle’s most valuable commodity. Thus, it’s plausible that a major Premier League club will succeed in securing his signature this summer.

From Liverpool’s perspective, a £100m price tag for Bruno may exceed their desired budget. Nevertheless, their sustained interest in him suggests a willingness to make a move. As such, the time may be ripe for Liverpool to make a decisive decision regarding Bruno’s potential acquisition.
