Liverpool will be signing at least one more midfielder in the summer transfer window, claims Fabrizio Romano.

This comes even after they revolutionized their midfield line with the acquisition of Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton and Dominik Szoboszlai from RB Leipzig.

Fabrizio Romano Reveals Liverpool’s Plan for Summer Window

Jurgen Klopp appears to be intent on overhauling his midfield after releasing players like Naby Keita and James Milner in the summer, while Arthur Melo also returned to Juventus after his failed loan spell.

Romano insists that irrespective of whatever happens with potential outgoings, the Reds are going to sign at least one more midfield player in the summer. It’s added that Southampton youngster Romeo Lavia is on top of their midfield wishlist – but they could face competition from Chelsea and Arsenal for him.

It’s also stated that the team are considering multiple options to improve their defensive midfield position. However, they are not holding negotiations for the signing of Brighton & Hove Albion star Moises Caicedo and are considering other possibilities for that role. As it stands, it appears that Liverpool are far from done in the summer window and are going to further improve Klopp’s squad to compete for major trophies next season.

Which Midfielders Could Liverpool Sell?

The Italian journalist confirms that Fabinho has already struck an agreement with Saudi Pro League club Al-Ittihad over a transfer. The Reds are now negotiating with the Saudi club and waiting to do final checks on all the documents as well as payment terms, making him cautious of the process. Irrespective, it’s stated that negotiations are very advanced and ongoing over a transfer – which is why the Brazilian midfielder was not named in the squad for the pre-season camp in Germany.

Meanwhile, Romano also states that Al-Ettifaq are trying to find a way to proceed with their ambitions to sign Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson. The Englishman is reported to have agreed to a three-year contract, but the Merseyside club will not allow him to leave for free and will ask for a transfer fee. A crucial week is ahead for the Reds – who are intent on further bolstering their midfield before the beginning of the Premier League campaign.
