Jurgen Klopp confirms Liverpool midfield target opted to join another club

Little headway appears to have been made amid efforts to lure a new midfielder to Anfield


Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has, on Tuesday, provided an update on the club’s ongoing efforts to bring in a new midfielder.

The subject of potential reinforcements in the middle of the park has of course taken its place front and centre in the headlines on the red half of Merseyside over the course of recent days.

This comes after the aforementioned Klopp, out of the blue, confirmed a change in stance when it comes to Liverpool’s plans for the remainder of the transfer window.

Throughout the vast majority of the summer, the assurance on the part of the Reds’ boss was that he was content with his midfield options for the season ahead.

Owing to a series of injury issues, and questions over the form of the likes of Fabinho and Jordan Henderson, though, the situation was dramatically altered.

In turn, speaking in a press conference late last week, Klopp revealed that, in fact, he and the powers that be at Anfield had in fact begun seeking out fresh engine room blood ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline.

And now, as alluded to above, the German has provided an update on such efforts.

First, in a blow to all associated with the club, confirmation was forthcoming that a leading Liverpool target instead opted to take his talents elsewhere.

From here, though, Klopp appeared to reiterate that the Merseysiders’ midfielder hunt remains ongoing:
