According to Sport Bild journalist Christian Falk, Liverpool has a simple plan on which positions they need to improve in the next few transfers windows, while he has also confirmed the club’s interest in Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria.
Back in April, Falk reported Liverpool was in ‘contact’ with Zakaria’s agent this summer over a potential transfer to the Premier League club.
And Falk has moved the desire once again, though he says the Reds want a new center-back and winger, as well as a new central midfielder like Zakaria.
Speaking to Empire of the Kop, Falk said: “The profile of the players who are wanted is clear. This was shown in the current transfer window.
“[Jurgen] Klopp needs fresh blood and competition on the wing, in the centre and in central defence. If these players don’t come this summer, they’ll try in the coming season. Speculating about specific names now would not be serious. It is far too early for that.”
When asked if Liverpool are pursuing any ‘Bundesliga bargains,’ Falk added: “I know that Liverpool have their eyes on Zakaria of Mönchengladbach.
“This is a very talented player who will hit the market next year. A move to the Premier League is easy for him to imagine.”
So far, Jurgen Klopp has only brought in Kostas Tsimikas this summer.
