TBR View: Liverpool reportedly interested in Camavinga, fans should be buzzing
Liverpool have reportedly joined the race for Eduardo Camavinga, a move that should leave fans buzzing.
What’s the story?
Midfield has been weakened this summer after the shocking departure of Gini Wijnaldum.
The Netherlands international left Anfield after failing to agree on a new contract.
It means the Reds have one less option at the centre of the team, something Jurgen Klopp may be eager to correct.
And so far, centre-back Ibrahima Konate has been the only arrival in the first-team squad.
However, the club have been put on alert with Rennes open to selling Camavinga in the little time left of the window, says 90min.
You would imagine, given Liverpool’s needs, the Merseysiders would be open to a move.
Camavinga can be the solution to Liverpool problems
Midfield is a bit of a problem area for Klopp right now.
The club have lost one of their most prized assets, meanwhile, Jordan Henderson has a less than desirable injury record.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita have also suffered their fair share of injury problems. And James Milner, at 35-years-old, is not getting any younger.
You would say one more body is required, but, is there an opportunity in the market?
At £30m, Camavinga is the player to the problems of Liverpool and Klopp. His age combined with his ability make him the perfect player.
For a player of such small stature, he’s elusive and hard to tackle on the ball, getting fouled 1.5 times per game last campaign. The 18-year-old also has an eye for a pass, averaging 89% in Ligue 1 last term.
His performances have earned him mass praise
Opportunities rarely ever present themselves to teams in the transfer market. But, at £30m, Liverpool would be crazy not to sign the ‘generational talent‘.
