Liverpool target midfielder with bargain 20m release clause as part of summer overhaul

The Reds are looking to strengthen their midfield this summer and could target the youngster

Liverpool are reportedly keen on making a transfer swoop for RB Leipzig midfielder Luka Sucic this summer as they look to overhaul their midfield, with the 20-year-old thought to have a release clause around the 20m euro mark, according to reports.

The Reds are set for a massive overhaul of their midfield at the end of the season, with Jordan Henderson, Thiago and James Milner all past their best and both Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain out of contract in June.

One bright spark has been youngster Stefan Bajcetic, but it is clear that additional reinforcements are needed.

Central to their plans is Jude Bellingham. Liverpool continue to have the Englishman at the top of their list for midfield reinforcements, but have also lined up potential alternatives, including Premier League duo Moises Caicedo and Matheus Nunes, in case they are ultimately priced out of a move for the Dortmund star.

But they are not expected to stop there, with a move for Chelsea star Mason Mount also having been mooted.

And, as per, they could add a third midfielder in the form of Sucic, who has appeared 93 times to date for Austrian club RB Salzburg, and has also managed 4 caps for Croatia, though he did not make it off the bench at the World Cup in Qatar.

A low cost option for the Reds, his arrival could allow Klopp to fund more expensive midfield additions while Sucic could also make a valuable contribution to the Anfield outfit in his own right.
