Liverpool told to go for 22-year-old Chelsea midfielder

Liverpool have crisis in the middle of the park, and are looking to sign a new midfielder before the transfer window closes.

Dortmund star Jude Bellingham has been linked with a big money move to Anfield next summer, but Liverpool need a midfielder for this summer, and are in the market for one.

Former Liverpool defender Enrique has urged Liverpool to go for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher.

He told BoyleSports Premier League: “Liverpool definitely need a midfielder. Oxlade-Chamberlain, Thiago and Naby Keita are great, but they are always injured, and you need strength in depth.

“At the moment, they’re really lacking a midfielder and losing Sadio Mane has been a massive loss.

“I love [Matheus] Nunes, who just signed for Wolves and it’s a mistake that Liverpool didn’t go for him.

“They’re talking about [Moises] Caicedo from Brighton, but I like Gallagher from Chelsea. He could be going back to Crystal Palace, but I like him a lot, he will be a good player.

“Next year Liverpool will go for someone like Bellingham but right now there’s not a lot of options. For me, I love Gallagher from Chelsea.

“If they don’t get the players that they need then it will be tough to see them fighting for the title. If they’re lucky with injuries, they could be there but if they don’t I think it will be tough.”
