Liverpool now tipped to move for ‘phenomenal’ 22-year-old, he’s started every PL game this season

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp knows he needs to start preparing his side for the future.

A number of his key players are now over the age of 30, and will need replacing in the next few seasons.

American manager Jim Curtin believes that Klopp may have already spotted a potential new recruit.

A number of players have put in fantastic performances against Liverpool this season.

Leandro Trossard’s hat-trick for Brighton at Anfield and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s cameo for Napoli both stand out.

However, Curtin has tipped Liverpool to move for Leeds United playmaker Brenden Aaronson after his performance against the Reds.

The 22-year-old only arrived at Elland Road in the summer for £25m from Red Bull Salzburg.

Aaronson has started every Premier League this season under Jesse Marsch.

He scored his only league goal against Chelsea in their impressive 3-0 win back in August.

He’s recorded two assists and been the only consistent attacker in Marsch’s line-up with a number of players rotated around him.

Liverpool tipped to move for Aaronson

Jesse Marsch’s side recorded a spectacular win at Anfield last month off the back of four straight defeats.

Aaronson played the entire match in a central attacking role, but had to put in a decent defensive shift too.

The American would offer a different option to any of Liverpool’s current central players.

The most similar player to Aaronson in the squad would be Fabio Carvalho, although Klopp has opted to play him out wide at times this season.

The ‘phenomenal’ midfielder has plenty of time to improve and adapt to the Premier League at Elland Road.

Curtin tipping Liverpool to make a move for Aaronson may be jumping the gun slightly, but shows how highly rated he is.

The American played 57 times for Curtin while at Philadelphia Union, and is a big fan of his former player.

Leeds won’t want to lose him too soon, especially with the hefty price tag attached to him.

However, Curtin is sure that the youngster impressed Klopp with his performance at Anfield.

“To watch Aaronson play against Liverpool, you could tell by Jurgen Klopp’s body language every time Brenden did anything— Look, I wouldn’t be shocked if he’s interested in that kid after how he played against him.” Curtin said.
