Liverpool’s desire to improve their midfield in 2023 is a known fact, and the Reds are looking to sign €30m Alberto Moleiro, a Las Palmas starlet, to help get the job done.
For a variety of reasons, Liverpool’s midfield needs to change in the coming year. James Milner, Jordan Henderson, and Thiago Alcantara are a few of their top options who are nearing the end of their professional careers. Fabinho, who is only 29 years old, also appears to be losing some of his sharpness.
Additionally, a few of their midfielders’ contracts will expire in 2023. In addition to Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita may be eligible for free agents in the summer. After his loan period, Arthur Melo will likely return to Juventus.
Consequently, a redesign might occur in the midst of their formation. Top targets like Jude Bellingham of Borussia Dortmund will be on their radar.
Though it seems like Liverpool is looking at more than just established talent. According to AS, they are in the running to sign a teen playing in the Spanish second division.
Alberto Moleiro, who presently represents Las Palmas, is the player in question. He has already made 51 appearances for their first team, scoring three goals and dishing out four assists. He also received their number 10 jersey.
Moleiro, who is only 19 years old, is beginning to catch the attention of major clubs throughout Europe. According to an AS report, his four biggest fans are Real Madrid, Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, and Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp is said to be a supporter of the Spain under-21 international, which could explain the Premier League club’s interest.
Moleiro has garnered “very good reports,” and Liverpool may make a move for him.
They might need to meet his €30 million release clause—roughly £26 million—in order to do so.
Additionally, his release clause will automatically increase to €60 million if Las Palmas are promoted to La Liga. That amount would be slightly more than £52 million.
