Liverpool Register Interest in African Starlet Pape Diop


Liverpool has reportedly initiated talks to secure the signature of African starlet Pape Diop, according to the player’s agent, Gerald Sagoe. The 19-year-old, currently playing for Belgian side SV Zulte Waregem, is relatively inexperienced at the senior level. However, Liverpool has shown interest in the young midfielder following his impressive performances in the U20 World Cup.

Despite Senegal’s failure to progress past the group stage in the competition, Diop showcased his potential, scoring a goal in three appearances. In an interview with TuttoMercatoWeb, the player’s agent confirmed that Liverpool has reached out to discuss the possibility of signing the talented African prospect.

However, Sagoe acknowledges that securing Diop’s signature will not be an easy task for Liverpool. As several other European clubs are also exploring the opportunity to sign him. French and Italian teams, including Napoli, have expressed interest in the player. And further discussions are planned in Germany in the coming weeks.

Liverpool Pursuit of New Midfielders

It is pretty clear that Liverpool is keen to strengthen their midfield this summer. As Jurgen Klopp is aiming to bring in at least three new midfielders. The club has already made acquisitions in the form of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai. However, their focus remains on securing another midfield option before the start of the upcoming season.

Romeo Lavia has been mentioned as a serious target for Liverpool. While there are also reports of Saudi Arabian side Al Ettifaq expressing interest in signing Jordan Henderson, who has reportedly agreed on personal terms with Steven Gerrard’s team in the Middle East.

In the event of Henderson’s departure, Liverpool would need to sign another midfielder. And Pape Diop could be a valuable addition for the long-term future. It will be interesting to see if Liverpool will formalize their interest in signing Diop and bolstering their midfield during this summer transfer window. The outcome will undoubtedly be of great interest to fans and observers alike.
