Liverpool are already looking ahead to the January transfer window to consider their options to strengthen Jurgen Klopp ’s squad.
The Reds completely remodelled their midfield in the summer, bringing in Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch after several departures in the position. Those deals have made an impact, with all four playing their part in Liverpool’s decent start to the season, which sees them second in the Premier League ahead of a top-of-the-table clash with Manchester City on Saturday.
Nevertheless, January always brings temptation, providing an opportunity to sign players to fix short-term problems due to injury, or snag a bargain in mid-season. Liverpool’s recruitment team have done some good work in the past two January windows, landing Cody Gakpo and Luis Diaz, so could another be coming up this season? Mirror Football takes a look at some of the options.
Liverpool appear to be on the lookout for central defenders and the 19-year-old Sao Paulo star is one of those they have looked at. Despite his youth, Beraldo has already made 48 appearances for the Brazilian side and has been extensively scouted by the Reds.
According to a recent report, Liverpool’s representatives met with Beraldo after a 1-0 win over Cruzeiro in early November and have suggested a £20million transfer to his club. Klopp is reportedly keen to get the deal done so as to avoid potential competition from rivals. If he did arrive in January, Beraldo would also be eligible to play in the Europa League for Liverpool, which is a big bonus.
