Liverpool have been closely linked with a transfer for Matheus Nunes this summer time, and following the harm disaster within the midfield, they could now be able to advance on their curiosity within the participant earlier than the switch window closes.
What’s the newest?
Switch insider Dean Jones has given an in depth evaluation on Liverpool’s probabilities of touchdown Sporting CP midfielder Nunes this summer time, claiming the membership have already got “scouting experiences” on the participant.
Jones informed GIVEMESPORT:
“There’s Matheus Nunes at Sporting. That’s one to look out for in the event that they do go into the market. He can be a very good match. I do know that Liverpool have gotten some scouting experiences on him made up already.
“He’s the proper profile that they’d usually search for in a signing. I’m not satisfied that they’ll go forward with this earlier than deadline day, it’d simply be one which they’ve bought on the again burner, but it surely’s most likely a reputation to look out for in the event that they do.”
It’s time to neglect about Thiago
With Curtis Jones and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain each already sidelined forward of the Premier League opener for Liverpool at Craven Cottage, the very last thing Jurgen Klopp wanted was Thiago Alcantara sustaining yet one more harm, alas the Spanish midfielder now joins his teammates on the harm desk for the subsequent six weeks.
That is the seventh occasion of harm for the previous Bayern Munich midfielder who joined the membership in 2020, spending 197 days on the therapy desk up to now during the last two years and failing to play greater than 25 Premier League video games per season, so it’s time for the membership to cease counting on harm inclined gamers and begin investing in younger expertise that may provide reliability.
Nunes has been speculated with a transfer to Merseyside all through the summer time and it comes as no shock as he’s the proper profile of midfielder to fit into the squad at Anfield, proving over final season in Liga Portugal that he could possibly be a precious asset to the Liverpool supervisor over the season forward.
The £51m gem delivered a 92% go completion price in his personal half, creating six huge possibilities, successful 55% of his duels and efficiently finishing the massive majority of his dribble makes an attempt too (70%). That was all mixed with three targets from his central midfield position over 33 appearances.
Thiago provides a really distinctive dynamic within the midfield for Liverpool which supplies the group a terrific edge when arising towards opponents, however his lack of availability is a trigger for concern, as is the age vary of the gamers within the squad, with the beginning XI vs Fulham the joint oldest within the Premier League final weekend.
Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Thiago, Joel Matip, Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino are all of their 30s now, so the current harm issues in midfield could possibly be a terrific alternative for FSG to start out introducing extra younger gamers into the centre of the pitch, with Nunes simply 23-years-old.
With that being stated, the powers at Anfield have lots to think about by way of getting in one other participant earlier than the switch window. They might be making an enormous danger by way of the health in midfield if they don’t advance on Nunes or any of their different midfield goal.
For now, they need to neglect about Thiago and swoop for the ever-improving Portuguese. His passing capability and composure on the ball would make him the proper alternative for Klopp.
