Jurgen Klopp ‘calling every day’ as Liverpool push on finalising box-office signing

Jurgen Klopp ‘calling every day’ as Liverpool push on finalising box-office signing

According to Football Insider, Jurgen Klopp “calls every day” as Liverpool attempts to recruit a star midfielder in January.

As the Merseysiders try to strengthen their roster in the forthcoming transfer window, the Anfield manager is taking on a more hands-on role than usual.

Liverpool’s January pursuit of Borussia Dortmund’s first-choice midfielder Jude Bellingham seems very improbable, making Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez a priority target.

Klopp scoffed at the notion of Liverpool signing the English wonder next month, while making it obvious that the club is on the lookout for a new player.

“January window? We are looking and if something happens, we will see. From a sports side, we are always prepared,” he said at his media conference.

Klopp is in charge of Liverpool’s transfer business, with central midfield being the top priority for a manager seeking an exceptional player in the prime of his career.

Klopp has made contact with Benfica regarding a potential transfer for Fernandez, as he is a huge fan of the World Cup champion.

According to reports, the Anfield manager “calls every day” regarding potential midfield signings in an effort to facilitate a deal.

Fernandez has a release clause of £105 million, and earlier this week it was reported in Portugal that Benfica rejected a bid of £88 million from an unknown team.

The midfielder went to the Estadio da Luz this summer from Argentine club River Plate and has 10 caps for his country, making him a relative newcomer to international football.

However, his worth has skyrocketed following numerous outstanding World Cup performances in Qatar, and he played the entire match as Argentina defeated France in Sunday’s dramatic final.

After beginning the World Cup on the bench, Fernandez was increasingly influential for Argentina as the competition continued.

In the first two games, he was a substitute, but he started the final five games played by the champions, including all four knockout matches against Australia, Netherlands, Croatia, and France.
