According to recent reports, Liverpool have tabled a bid to secure the signature of Athletic Bilbao wide man Iker Muniain. It is understood that the Reds are among a whole host of clubs looking to land the talented Spaniard whose contract with Bilbao is set to expire at the end of this campaign. Some sources have also revealed that the La Liga outfit are in preliminary talks with the midfielder over a potential new deal, but an agreement has not been reached yet.
Liverpool are still looking for a creative spark to boost their midfield after narrowly missing out on signing Nabil Fekir from Lyon last summer. It has also been claimed that the Merseyside club have finally found an alternative option for Fekir in Muniain. Jurgen Klopp’s side have begun this campaign in terrific form which has seen them remain unbeaten after ten matches in the Premier League.
Liverpool’s Lack Of Creativity In Midfield
However, there are still some question marks over their creativity from midfield with Xherdan Shaqiri often being played out of his natural position to operate as a facilitator from the centre of the park. Muniain could be a perfect candidate to fill up that void in the Reds midfield as he has a knack for scoring and setting up goals while playing as a floating winger down the left flank.
What Will Muniain Add To Klopp’s Team?
The Spanish sensation is very quick with the ball at his feet and is one of the best dribblers in European football. He could be a real driving force in midfield as he is not afraid to take on the opposing defenders in 1v1 situations. However, his finishing has often let him down which is why the 25-year-old prospect needs to work on his shooting if he wants to prove his value at a top club like Liverpool.
Is The Spanish Talent The Right Fit For The Reds?
Muniain would be an ideal fit for Klopp’s system at Anfield as he is a willing worker both on and off the ball which means that the Bilbao academy graduate could be the perfect option to lead the press for the Reds in midfield. He could also play behind the Liverpool front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah to set up some chances for them in the attacking third.
Klopp should do everything in his power to lure the Spaniard to Merseyside as he might help the Reds compete for some major silverware in the coming years.
