Liverpool Join Race to Sign “Incredible” Star Who Has More Assists Than Andy Robertson

Liverpool are set for a new chapter this summer as Jurgen Klopp’s legendary nine-year reign draws to a close, whether or not it culminates in the perfect farewell at the season’s end. Alongside this transition, a wave of new talent appears ready to grace the team.

Prior to any arrivals, Liverpool’s primary objective will be to tackle the daunting challenge of finding a successor for Klopp, a task that appears to be steering them towards Ruben Amorim.

The Sporting CP coach has emerged as the top candidate on the shortlist of Michael Edwards and Richard Hughes, especially after Xabi Alonso’s decision to remain at Bayer Leverkusen for at least another season.

Despite swirling rumours, Amorim has chosen to stay tight-lipped about his future, dismissing speculation of any agreement with Liverpool during a recent press conference, as conveyed by Fabrizio Romano.

“Rúben Amorim: “I did NOT meet Liverpool for any interview and there’s no agreement, it’s not true”.

“I’m Sporting manager, I want to win here and I didn’t meet any club. Nothing has been agreed”.

“Stop with this story. This is the last time I speak about my future”

Liverpool’s reported targets align well with Amorim’s 3-4-3 setup, especially Jeremie Frimpong, recently linked to the Reds.

Frimpong, excelling as a Leverkusen wing-back this season, has garnered significant attention for his standout performances, mirroring the interest in his defensive counterpart.

TEAMtalk reports that Liverpool have entered the competition to secure Alejandro Grimaldo‘s signature, joining Arsenal and Bayern Munich in the pursuit ahead of the summer transfer window.

Grimaldo, showcasing an impressive performance this season, notably contributed to Leverkusen’s unbeaten streak. Liverpool eye a potential double swoop, considering Grimaldo alongside Leverkusen’s wing-backs, after missing out on Alonso.

“Incredible” Grimaldo Would Be Perfect for Amorim

Considering Amorim’s utilisation of a back-three system with wing-backs, Grimaldo would seamlessly integrate, given his past success under Alonso at Leverkusen.

The potential transfer fee from Leverkusen is uncertain, but a talent like Grimaldo’s is hard to ignore, despite Liverpool’s existing options like Andy Robertson.

Leverkusen’s sporting director, Simon Rolfes, has been effusive in his praise for Grimaldo this term, clearly impressed by his performance, which has surpassed Robertson’s.

Rolfes told Sky Sports that the left-back is a “simply incredible footballer, technically great and very intelligent,” before going on to say: “Part of the reason why we dominate games to the extent we do at the moment is to do with him reading situations very quickly and coming forward to create overloads.”
