Report: Liverpool looking to beat Everton and Newcastle to Weston McKennie

Premier League champions Liverpool are reportedly (CBS Sports) among the clubs looking to sign Schalke 04 midfielder, Weston McKennie, with Everton and Newcastle also keeping a close eye on proceedings.

McKennie, who plays predominantly as a holding or central midfielder, is believed to be on the radars of a number of top clubs heading into this summer.

A more or less ever-present for Schalke, the 21-year-old USA star has been one of the standout performers in the Bundesliga this season beyond the top two.

And now, CBS Sports claim that Liverpool have entered the race to land McKennie. The update comes just a week after Bild claimed that Everton and Newcastle were keen on the midfielder.

A fee in the region of £22m has been mentioned in those reports. It is clear, then, that Schalke values their man highly.

Liverpool could be in the market for a new midfielder this summer. Jordan Henderson is injured for a few months, so Jurgen Klopp may well fancy a new midfield player to give him more options heading into the new season.

McKennie has proven himself as a top midfield player over in Germany and on the international stage so it’s little surprise to see Premier League clubs looking on.

Liverpool could well be perfect, too. A sitting midfielder who can play with and learn from the likes of Henderson and Fabinho, McKennie would surely relish the chance of a move to the champions.

Indeed, he also dreams of playing in England. He told Goal in a previous interview his next step was a move to England. The door, then, seems to be open for the Reds to make their move.
