Liverpool learn asking price for latest midfield target

Liverpool could strengthen their midfield for a small fee this summer.

Liverpool’s biggest weakness this season has been their midfield.

Jurgen Klopp built his success at Liverpool around a fast, powerful, pressing midfield, which mainly consisted of Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho.

However, Wijnaldum has now left, Henderson is not the player he once was and Fabinho has also put in some questionable displays over the last few months.

A number of Liverpool’s current midfielders are also expected to leave the club this summer.

James Milner, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all out of contract at the end of the season and are expected to depart.

This suggests that one or two new central midfielders are likely to be brought in this summer.

One such player may be Mainz midfielder, Anton Stach. A report from 90min has claimed that both Liverpool and Tottenham are scouting Stach, alongside Newcastle and West Ham.

And now, Fabrizio Romano has revealed how much Stach would set any potential suitor back:

“Anton Stach is impressing with Mainz and we’re now seeing transfer rumours about a big move to the Premier League,” Romano said.

“He’s a good player with value close to €18-20m, but at the moment honestly I’m not aware of his name in the list of Tottenham and Liverpool.

“No decision will be made by Tottenham on summer targets in February or March.”
