Report: Tottenham and Liverpool now both want to sign £23m 'Kante-like' midfielder this summer

Both Tottenham and Liverpool are keen on signing RB Leipzig midfielder, Konrad Laimer, according to a report from Kicker.

Laimer has been one of the stars of the show for the Bundesliga side this season, being a regular in midfield and helping Leipzig to fifth in the table. However, his form has attracted attention from elsewhere, and now a host of clubs want the Austrian.

Kicker lists Liverpool and Tottenham among those keen on signing the midfielder. Other sides, such as Manchester United, also get a mention.

Football Transfers labels Laimer as being like N’Golo Kante for his style of play, while they also claim a fee of around £23m might be enough for Leipzig to do business. Both Tottenham and Liverpool are keen on new players this summer, with a midfielder high on the agenda for both.

Laimer could be available at a knockdown price due to his contract expiring in 2023. As yet, there is no sign of a new deal being in the pipeline for the Austrian. Laimer has made 38 appearances for Leipzig this season, scoring five and laying on another six for his teammates in the process.

TBR’s View: Laimer A Solid Addition For Both Liverpool And Tottenham

With both teams wanting to add depth to their squads in midfield areas, you have to say Laimer looks a steal if that £23m price tag is right.

Laimer has had an impressive campaign with RB Leipzig this term and has, crucially, shown he can mix it at the top level in terms of Champions League football.

This is a big summer for Tottenham and Liverpool. Both Conte and Klopp will want new players to keep things fresh and improve the squads. Laimer, on paper anyway, seems to tick a lot of boxes.
