Liverpool are now determined to sign £85m title-leader and will not give up easily


Liverpool spent big money in the summer. However, that attracted some brilliant profiles to Anfield, but it seems the rebuild is not quite complete.

According to 90min, the club are now determined to sign Bayer Leverkusen’s Florian Wirtz in the near future.

Wirtz is said to have an £85m price tag, however he is unlikely to be available in January according to this report.

Moreover, a transfer for the much-coveted 20-year-old may have to wait until 2025, but that hasn’t put Liverpool off.

Wirtz has been in inspired form for Xabi Alonso’s Leverkusen, a side that currently tops the Bundesliga.

And whilst Manchester City are also said to be very interested in the attacking midfielder. However , Liverpool may hope Alonso could have some influence.

It certainly would be an intriguing move. Because  Klopp’s Liverpool team don’t usually start with a player in the mould of Wirtz in their midfield.

Perhaps the manager does view the German as someone who can help evolve their midfield in the future. 

Liverpool pledged to sign Florian Wirtz to their midfield:

Although now strongly linked with Wirtz, some Liverpool fans might have preferred a slightly different profile for Klopp’s midfield.

Alexis Mac Allister is filling in well in a defensive role. However, it would be a surprise if he was envisioned there in the long-term.

The likes of Manchester City’s Rodri and Arsenal’s Declan Rice seem to be much more imposing figures . However they’re the ones capable of inspiring a title push.

And whilst that’s not to say that Mac Alllister can’t, he has often come unstuck with his defending already this season.

Wataru Endo has had some nice moments. However perhaps he wouldn’t be a starter in the biggest of games.

It does seem an obvious area to upgrade for Liverpool, perhaps one that should take priority over a signing like Wirtz.

Although, given that transfer may be for years to come, Klopp may have some defensive targets in mind.
