Klopp Ready to Finally Get $33million Signing Done for Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp DortmundAfter a series of terrible results, it seems that Jurgen Klopp is ready to strengthen his Liverpool squad.

Yesterday, we covered a report claiming that the Reds have been tracking Argentine international Leandro Paredes for a long time and Roma are prepared to sell him for a fee of 30 million euros (via Italian media).

Now, Emanuele Giulianelli has claimed in an exclusive report (The Sun), that Liverpool are determined to finally get his signing done and are set to launch a move of 26.5million pounds ($33million).

The Italian football journalist has stated that Roma are looking to cash in on Leandro and use the funds to sign Atlanta starlet Franck Kessie. Moreover, Giulianelli adds that Klopp will hope that signing Paredes can give Liverpool a much needed boost.

The 22-year-old South American star is a specialist defensive midfielder, one that Liverpool badly need in their squad. This season, Paredes has featured in 14 league games for the Serie A side and has scored one goal.

As per the provided Sun link, even the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are interested in signing the former Boca Juniors Midfielder.

Liverpool have lacked a strong defensive midfielder since the departure of Javier Mascherano back in 2010. Paredes could be the man to finally solve the conundrum at Anfield.

    As the transfer window is slowly shutting the chances are the club will tell us they didn’t have time to do a deal but when Lucas has been a waste of space for ten years and Mascherano left about seven years ago why has it taken so long to notice the weakness in the defensive midfield area? By 2022 we might notice that our keepers are both crap, we haven’t got a CB worthy of wearing the shirt, Henderson isn’t a DM and we urgently need a striker who can score more than five a year in the ten games they manage to play, due to constant injuries.
    Only people happy at Anfield are the money people who are sitting on a huge transfer war chest made even bigger by making a profit on transfer dealings last summer.
    Hear rumours we might be spending £4m on a young African kid who is currently plying his trade in some God-forsaken league for a club I’ve never heard of. Losing three – soon to be four – home games on the trot and we seek to bring in a kid totally incapable of playing at our level for many months, if not years! My, that’ll frighten Chelsea, Arsenal, United, Spurs and City as they look to get Griezeman and a few other world-class superstars.

    Speak of being pessimistic. We need a good run and we will be fine . Champions league was the target . We need a few more players no doubt . It will happen in the summer. In klopp we trust! YNWA

    How can Red Phil be our spokeman? He may speak for you – I don’t care. When Dembele was out there last transfer window, someone was pleading almost at a daily basis for Liverpool fc to sign the boy. People like you lammented that the guy is not a super star. Today the boy is more than a superstar less than 365 days. Somewhere you do not like the boy because he is not playing in a league you know of, and moreso he is an African. Do you mean Africans don’t know how to play football? Thank God George Weah will always remain an African and so will Sadio Mane. Phil, next time be more constructive. I feel Klopp should sign the boy now and bring him up to the standard needed for LFC to progress.

      Nothing to do with him being from Africa. All about the huge difference between many far less competitive leagues and our one. Could a young kid help LFC in their current dip in form and especially when that young kid wouldn’t last five minutes of the pace and intensity we have here? The answer is an emphatic NO!
      We don’t really need a youngster now, we need somebody capable of addressing our CURRENT problems and somebody already experienced and able to offer something NOW would meet our requirements. Future potential won’t cut the mustard in our present mess!
