Surprise Newcastle star tipped to replace Fabinho at Liverpool

Liverpool have been told to sign a Newcastle player to help improve their midfield.


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.

Now, as Liverpool look to repair their midfield, Dietmar Hamann has suggested that Newcastle star Joelinton could be the ideal target:

“It depends on what Fabinho does over the next couple of months or probably until the end of the season. I think if Fabinho doesn’t pick up, they probably need a holding midfielder, and then I think they need an offensive midfielder,” he said.

“I’ve always looked at a player like Joelinton, I think they need a physical presence in midfield. I think they’ve got a lot of players in midfield, they’re all pretty similar, they can all handle the ball, they’re technically very gifted, but I also think they need a physical presence, especially in the Premier League.

“If Fabinho doesn’t pick up, I would say a defensive midfielder and somebody who gets a goal from midfield.”
