With the replacement of players like Milner, Ox, Keita, and Henderson, Liverpool significantly improved the situation in the park’s center.
To strengthen the No. 6 position, the Reds were unable to fully replace Fabinho during the summer transfer window.
Wataru Endo, an experienced Asian who represents Japan internationally and isn’t nearly as versatile as Fabinho, was recruited to reinforce the DM position.
The Merseysiders should therefore try to buy a quality playbreaker or deep-lying playmaker during the winter transfer window, and Manu Kone is once more the player who is in the spotlight.
The Borussia Monchengladbach player, who was reportedly worth approximately 40 million euros, was said to be moving to Anfield in the summer.
The 22-year-old, though, injured his knee in the U-21 European Championships in June. He has been out of commission ever since, and the price has decreased.
Now, according to Calcio Mercato, Liverpool are still interested in signing Kone and must come to an agreement on a transfer fee of about £20.6 million (24 million euros) to do so.
According to an Italian news source, Juventus, an Italian powerhouse, is also interested in signing the French teenager as a potential replacement for Paul Pogba.
Kone is a tactically astute midfielder who not only breaks up plays well but can also pass and dribble past opponents.
The child successfully completed the most take-ons in 2022 among CMs and DMs (Squawka).
Should Liverpool finally pay £20.6 million to recruit Manu Kone in January, in your opinion?
