28 Y/O Argentine Midfielder Plays Down A Move To Liverpool: 3 Replacements For Klopp To Consider

Javier Pastore, the Argentine midfielder joined Paris Saint-Germain on August 6, 2011, for a fee of €42m at the tender age of 22. The technically gifted playmaker can play in several positions. His tall, slender build complemented by his work-rate allows him to operate as a winger or a deep-lying midfielder depending on the team’s requirement. The creative midfielder has a knack for not only creating but also scoring goals for club and country.

Pastore, who has gone on to make over 150 appearances at Paris, has failed to cement a regular starting place in his 6-year tenure at the club due to some unfortunate recurring injuries. The 28-year old will now find it difficult to regain a regular starting spot with the likes of Rabiot, Motta and Verratti orchestrating the PSG midfield.

However, he has turned down a move to Liverpool leaving the Reds looking at other options to target. Here are three players who Liverpool can chase.

Jean Michael Seri

The player in question here is Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri. He is valued at around £35 million and he could well be on his way to England this summer.

The Ivory Coast midfielder is a star player at the French club and has played over 100 games since his move, back in 2015. He was linked heavily with a move to Barcelona but the Catalans pulled out at the last minute. A player with an engine to run for 90 minutes he would certainly shape the Liverpool midfield for years to come.

Arturo Vidal

Arturo Vidal of Bayern Munich is nearing the end of his contract at the German club. The midfield dynamo from Chile is a mainstay in the middle of the park for them and has a playing style that makes him an ideal modern day midfielder. He is smart on the ball and has a peripheral range of distribution. However, what makes him a world class midfielder is the fact that he is an absolute nightmare to deal with when off the ball. He can cover every blade of grass on a weekly basis and has a knack for the outrageous shots from outside the box.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

The 22-year old Serbian midfielder currently plays for Lazio. The central midfielder is an action-packed player and has a tenacious engine to keep playing for 90 minutes day in day out. His added quality of having a keen eye for goal is however what sets him apart for someone his age. With years of peak football ahead of him, it is no secret why the big clubs are chasing his signature. Since his move to Lazio in the summer of 2015, Savic has gone on to make 101 appearances for the club scoring 19 goals and creating another 17. He will no doubt add much more as he continues to develop and Liverpool could do with a player like him.
