Liverpool Transfer News: The Reds want their €50m target

Liverpool Transfer News: Jesper Lindstrom has been phenomenal for Eintracht Frankfurt this season in the Bundesliga. And according to German journalist Florian Plettenberg, both Arsenal and Liverpool have shown interest in the 23-year-old midfielder.

Liverpool need help in the middle of the field and the 23-year-old might be a great long-term buy for them. Lindstrom can play either the defensive or offensive role of centre midfielder. He will improve Liverpool’s midfield with his skill and scoring ability.

Players like Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are expected to leave the Reds as free agents. And now there’s pressure on Jürgen Klopp to replace him with someone of equal calibre. The 23-year-old Dane has the makings of a great Premier League midfielder and has already contributed to nine goals and four assists this season across all competitions.

It remains to be seen whether Premier League rivals Liverpool and Arsenal will be able to outbid one another for his services in the coming months. Despite the Bundesliga club’s asking price of €50 million, the midfielder is believed to be worth between €35 and €40 million. It will be exciting to watch where he signs, since both teams have the resources to pay for him.

Arsenal will be a more appealing destination at the moment because of their potential participation in the Champions League next season and their proximity to this year’s Premier League title.

Liverpool, on the other hand, have had a dismal league season and are at serious risk of failing to qualify for the Champions League. According to Florian Plettenberg, representatives from both Premier League teams have contacted Frankfurt about a possible move this summer. The Bundesliga club would release him if they received an offer of around €50 million.

It seems that Frankfurt’s expectations must be lowered for any move to succeed. The club where the 23-year-old can count on playing time in the first team is the one he should aim to join. With Liverpool’s need for a lot of midfield reinforcements, he has a better chance of playing time.

Although Arsenal could use someone like Martin Odegaard in his position, the Gunners already have a starter in that position, therefore Odegaard, who is just 23, will likely be a bench warmer for the club. If both Arsenal and Liverpool make offers of roughly €50 million, it will be intriguing to see which one he chooses.
