Liverpool are reportedly showing interest in signing Jesper Lindstrom in the January transfer window. Arsenal are also monitoring the situation of the Danish midfielder.
However, Eintracht Frankfurt would love to keep their star midfielder at the club for the rest of the season. Although, the interest of top Premier League sides is certainly going to distract the midfielder’s focus.
LIVERPOOL AND JESPER LINDSTROM TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Liverpool are showing interest in signing Jesper Lindstrom in the January transfer window. The report also claims that they are in contact with his agent. However, they have not made a bid for him. Although, the truth is Jurgen Klopp needs signings in the midfielder position. It is because the future of the number of midfielders is uncertain. Alex Oxlade Chamberlin, Naby Keita, James Milner, and loanee Arthur Melo are all facing uncertain futures with the Premier League giants.
Hence, Liverpool will need to make midfielder signings in this January transfer window and the next summer transfer window. Therefore, it looks like Jesper Lindstrom is one of the names on the list. It is clear from recent reports that the main midfield target for the Reds is Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund. However, a January move is complicated as Dortmund are demanding 150 million for the England midfielder. Hence, they are looking at affordable options like Jesper Lindstrom and Khéphren Thuram.
ARSENAL ARE NO LONGER SHOWING SERIOUS INTEREST ON THE DANISH MIDFIEDER
According to numerous reports, Arsenal are reducing their interest in Jesper Lindstrom. A number of reports earlier claimed that he was going to be one of the first signings in the January transfer window. However, after the potential signing of Leandro Trossard, the Gunners will focus on a different player. Therefore, it looks like Liverpool have a clear run on the signing of Jesper Lindstrom. A report also claims that Lindstrom is a big fan of them. Hence, Klopp should have no problems convincing him to join them.
However, the problem for Liverpool is to agree on a fee with Eintracht Frankfurt. The Danish midfielder has a contract until 2026 with the Bundesliga side. Hence, Frankfurt are not in a hurry to sell him in the January transfer window. They can take the risk of keeping him at the club till the end of the season. A report also claims that Frankfurt are going to ask the interested teams to bid at least 30 million to even negotiate a January sale. There are also a number of top European clubs monitoring the situation.
Hence, Liverpool must move fast, if they want to secure the signing of Jesper Lindstrom in the January transfer window. The midfielder is also reportedly open to a move to the Premier League. He is one of the best players for Frankfurt this season. Hence, the Bundesliga team could lose players like Jesper Lindstrom and Evan Ndicka in the January or next summer transfer window.
