Liverpool have been looking forward to making amends for their mistakes in the midfield, which has given an advantage to their rivals and helped them to score goals against the Reds at will. They were overwhelmed by the might of their close rivals Manchester City in their fourth match of this season in the Premier League and escaped embarrassment at the hands of Burnley with a timely equaliser from Mohamed Salah to end the contest at 1-1 in their last match.
Though their manager Jurgen Klopp is not a very big fan of defensive football, it might be high time for him to indulge into bringing players who can give his side solidarity in the middle of the pitch and act as a defensive screen in front of their fragile backline.
It seems that the German tactician is also trying his level best to get a player who can fit into the role of a defensive midfielder in the side and he is currently looking to get Sergej Milinkovic Savic to Liverpool, who is currently plying his trade at the Italian club Lazio.
A part of the Italian club since 2015, the 22-year-old has been one of the finest players in the role of an enforcer for the Italian outfit and has given a world of solidarity to the midfield. He has made 81 appearances for the Serie A side so far and has become a potential target for a number of clubs from all over Europe, with Liverpool looking to be the frontrunners to secure his signature in the next transfer window.
However, the Italian club might be looking to keep hold of their prized possession in the new season as well but Liverpool are trying to do whatever is possible in their power to get the player on their side for the future. It is going to be a very important inclusion for them to their side, giving stability to the defensive aspect and making them a cohesive unit.
The player is known for his ability to keep hold of the ball for a significant amount of time and also help the defenders in keeping the ball out of the danger area as much as possible. The Serbian international has also been hailed by his teammates as a brilliant passer of the ball, setting them up to get into the opposition box and score goals to give an advantage to their side.
He is a decent fit to Klopp’s style of play but is wanted by a host of clubs in England. So can Klopp land him?
