According to Liverpool Echo, the Merseyside club will reportedly make a third attempt to sign Raphael Guerreiro of Borussia Dortmund this summer. The Reds are seeking to bolster their midfield and defensive departments, and the Portuguese international fits the criteria perfectly.

Guerreiro’s Campaign With Borussia Dortmund This Season

Guerreiro is enjoying another impressive campaign at Signal Iduna Park after putting in a run of impressive displays on the left side of Dortmund’s defence. The 29-year-old has scored six goals and picked up thirteen assists in 33 appearances for the German club this season on all fronts.

The Portuguese sensation has given a good account of himself on the left flank by averaging 1.3 tackles, 1.3 interceptions, 0.8 clearances, 1.2 shots, 2.1 key passes and 1.0 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Bundesliga. He has even been tidy with his ball distribution, completing 85.1% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).

Despite Borussia Dortmund’s efforts to retain Guerreiro’s services by offering him a two-year contract extension, the Portuguese defender has reportedly rejected the club’s proposal. As a result, he is set to depart on a free transfer once his existing contract expires this summer.

Should Klopp Bring Him On Board At Liverpool?

Guerreiro has showcased his left-back and midfielder abilities, making him a valuable asset on the pitch. His technical proficiency, vision, and ability to contribute offensively with goals and assists could significantly enhance the Merseyside squad.

Furthermore, Guerreiro’s high-intensity matches experience, including his UEFA Champions League performances, could be an asset for Liverpool‘s ambitions of competing at the highest level.

However, securing Guerreiro’s services won’t be without competition, as other clubs may also pursue the talented player in the upcoming transfer window. Liverpool would need to act swiftly and present an enticing offer to secure his signature.

Ultimately, Guerreiro’s potential addition to Liverpool would provide depth, quality, and versatility to Jurgen Klopp‘s squad, making him a viable option for the Reds as they look to strengthen their ranks.
