While Manchester United is in communication with a soon-to-be free-agent striker and Liverpool is increasing its interest in two midfielders who represent Mainz and RB Salzburg, according to Tuesday’s Euro Paper Talk, Arsenal is reportedly requesting £35 million for a striker deal
KLOPP desires that Rangy Mainz sign with Liverpool.
According to reports, Liverpool is becoming increasingly serious about a potential deal to recruit Mainz midfielder Anton Stach this summer.
The 6ft 4in midfielder has become one of the top players in the Bundesliga this year. The 24-year-old No. 6 has made 24 appearances across all leagues, recording one goal and three assists.
Moreover, Mainz, who are now ranked seventh in the Bundesliga, are now in the running to qualify for Europe thanks to his achievements.
Currently, clubs like Liverpool, Tottenham, and West Ham reportedly have all checked on the player.
However, Sky Germany asserts that Liverpool, whose manager Jurgen Klopp is a big fan, is showing the most interest.
Additionally, a cheap deal for Stach might be done this summer as the Reds manager looks to upgrade his midfield.
His contract expires in the summer of 2024, therefore Mainz appear certain to make a profit this season.
According to the rumors, they will only accept a price of £10.5 million (€12 million) when the window reopens. Mainz can ill afford to allow Stach enter the final year of his contract and approach free agency because they are aware that he is unlikely to sign an extension.
According to reports, Klopp believes the enormous midfielder is a step up from Fabinho, who has struggled this year at Liverpool.
Stach aspires to play at a higher caliber in order to crack Hansi Flick’s Euro 2024 roster. The 24-year-old has already earned two appearances for Die Mannschaft.
Luka Susic is desired by Liverpool to join Stach at Anfield.
Meanwhile, the Reds are actively pursuing Croatian sensation Luka Susic.
This year, the 20-year-old has drawn attention while representing RB Salzburg in the Austrian division. Susic, who is currently nine points in front at the top, appeared 15 times before suffering a knee injury.
Susic, though, has already received four caps for the international team and his effect is already very significant. In fact, he was a member of Zlatko Dalic’s team earlier this season as they advanced to the World Cup semifinals.
His influence is so great that Susic is already being referred to as “the next Luka Modric” in several Croatian media outlets. The 162 times-capped senior Real Madrid player, 37, is revered as a godlike figure in his native country. Comparing Susic to Modric is clearly not done lightly, thus.
Susic reportedly has a release clause in his contract with Salzburg worth about £17.6 million (€20 million), which Liverpool is considering using.
