RB Leipzig key man emerged as surprise transfer target for Liverpool

By | June 11, 2022

Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are allegedly both among the sides interested in a possible transfer move for RB Leipzig star Konrad Laimer.

The Austrian midfielder has impressed in his time in Germany and is now attracting attention ahead of the summer as the Reds and Spurs join Bayern Munich in the hunt for his signature, according to a report from Kicker.

The report says that the player is approaching the final 12 months of his contract with Die Roten Bullen, and it is not yet clear if he will be looking to pen a new deal with his present club.

This could put the Bundesliga outfit under pressure to cash in on the 24-year-old for a reduced sum this summer, which could be extremely beneficial to the aforementioned outfits.

Boss Jurgen Klopp could do with more variants in the middle of the pitch as the Merseysiders never replaced midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum after his exit in 2021, while the likes of Thiago Alcantara, Jordan Henderson and James Milner are not getting any younger.
