Liverpool need major reinforcements in the summer transfer window if they are to have any chance of challenging for the Premier League title next season.
The Reds do have quality players but they seriously lack depth and Klopp must solve the problems sooner rather than later.
As far as the transfers are concerned, highly rated Lyon center forward Alexander Lacazette has been linked with a move to Anfield (via Mirror).
Now, according to reports in Portugal, Liverpool are eyeing another highly rated star in the form of Porto midfielder Danilo. As per A Bola, Liverpool scouts were recently present at the Estadio do Dragao to observe the 25-year-old Portuguese international.
Jurgen Klopp badly needs a proven quality defensive midfielder in his squad. The likes of Henderson and Can are just not good enough for that position.
The Merseysiders have lacked a classy DM since the departure of Mascherano. Danilo is someone who perfectly fits the bill and can finally solve the ongoing dilemma at Anfield. The former Maritimo player has been in great form for Porto this season in the holding midfield role.
He has also netted 2 goals and provided one assist in 20 league appearances for the Primeira Liga giants. Danilo has played 17 games for the senior national side and scored one goal. He was part of the squad that won the European Championships last year, made five appearances in the competition.
Back in the winter transfer window, Arsenal were heavily linked with Danilo but he eventually signed a new deal with Porto, until 2022, with a release clause of £51million (Star).
In your opinion, should Liverpool splash the cash to sign Danilo?
