Liverpool are interested in securing the services of Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini this summer. According to recent reports, the Reds are ready to offer him a three-year contract in their efforts to prise him away from Old Trafford. The Belgian midfielder’s contract with the Red Devils runs out at the end of the season and so, he will become a free agent this summer.

A whole host of clubs which include Jurgen Klopp’s side as well as Paris Saint-Germain, Monaco and Besiktas, who are all eager to make a swoop for the former Everton player’s signature in the off-season. It is believed that the 30-year-old is frustrated with the lack of playing time at Manchester during the course of this campaign and could now be weighing up his options ahead of the summer transfer window.

Fellaini has been a sporadic feature in Jose Mourinho’s first-team and has been plagued with injuries over the past few campaigns. Some sources are now claiming that his time at Old Trafford is up in smokes, which could mean that the idea of a potential switch to Anfield is not too far-fetched. The Belgian has featured in 19 matches for United this season, scoring 4 goals and providing one assist in all competitions.

The Anfield-based team are currently sitting in the 3rd position in the Premier League rankings after a hard-fought 0-0 draw against Everton in the Merseyside derby last weekend. The Reds are now preparing for their crucial UEFA Champions League quarter-final second-leg clash versus Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. 

The addition of Fellaini will undoubtedly bolster Jurgen Klopp’s midfield options ahead of the new season as the Merseyside outfit looks to mount a realistic title challenge next term. Liverpool have the likes of Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Emre Can vying for a place in the Reds’ first-team with the impending arrival of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig this summer.

The potential signing of Fellaini will definitely add more competition for places in Klopp’s squad next season. At 30, the Belgian still has a few years left in him to play at the top level. Fellaini is aerially dominant and could turn out to be a shrewd piece of business if Liverpool can pull off such a deal. It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of Fellaini and whether he ends up making a switch to Anfield in the near future.
