Liverpool face Everton tonight in the Premier League and need three points to pile pressure on runaway leaders Chelsea who won their 11th league game on the trot by beating Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The Reds also need to strengthen their squad in the winter window to push for the title in the new year.
Now, another versatile player is in the limelight in the form of Santos midfielder Thiago Maia. According to reports (ESPN BR), Liverpool have already moved in with a proposal to sign the 19-year-old Brazilian starlet..
Liverpool already have more than a few versatile midfielders like Henderson, Wijnaldum and Can in the squad. What they really need is someone who can provide a solid cover in front of the back four.
Brazilian defensive midfielder Lucas Leiva is past his best and should be sold/replaced. On the other hand, young Stewart is still inexperienced and not good enough to play as the holding midfielder in the first team regularly.
Henderson has been working hard in the deeper role but he is not an expert in breaking attacks by any means.
Therefore, Jurgen Klopp must look to splash the cash and sign a top DM in the winter transfer window.
