Liverpool plot move for Konrad Laimer
As per Sky Germany (h/t Sportskeeda), Liverpool are keen on signing RB Leipzig midfielder Konrad Laimer in the January window. Laimer is also a key target for Bayern Munich.
The 25-year-year-old midfielder is in the final year of his contract with the Leipzig outfit. The Red Bulls could look to cash in for him in January as opposed to letting him leave for free at the end of the season.
Liverpool have struggled so far this season, managing to win just four of their opening 12 games in the league. They are currently ninth in the Premier League table, 15 points behind leaders Arsenal.
Midfield has been the biggest area of Jurgen Klopp. Almost all of the Reds’ senior midfielders have suffered injuries during the campaign’s opening weeks.
