Liverpool are currently going through the worst season under Jurgen Klopp. They will have to fix things in the middle of the campaign if they want to finish in the top four.
The Reds faced a humiliated defeat against Brighton at the weekend. Premiere League is already done and dusted for them. Now their eyes only should be on securing a place in the Champions League spot.
If they want their place in the top four and reinforcements are a must in the central midfield. Midfield is the weakest department for The Reds. Ruben Neves is the one which is coming on their radar.
Liverpool plotting a move for the Portuguese
According to The Mirror, Liverpool are plotting a move to sign Ruben Neves from Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Portuguese international will run out of contract in 18 months. He once valued around £70 million now it is decreasing.
Some news sources claim that Newcastle are also interested in the 25-year-old. But they would prefer to wait until the summer. Meanwhile, Liverpool are in urgency to sign him, which gives them chance to make a move.
Last summer, the Anfield club made a contact with the player’s agent. Wolves were demanding a fee of £43.8 million, but somehow he ended up staying there.
Neves is mainly a deep-laying defensive midfielder but can also play as a creative central midfielder as well. He is also a set piece specialist and delivers quality balls in the box.
He won UEFA Nations League with Portugal and was a key player for them at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
In this season, Thiago has not been creative, Henderson has been caught up by the age, and Fabinho has failed to break play.
Neves would be an ideal choice for the Reds who can improve some things in the middle of the park.
