Liverpool may ‘see’ RB Leipzig midfielder Konrad Leimer again when transfer window reopens, according to journalist dean jones.
The 25-year-old was linked with a move from Red Bull Arena over the summer, but was able to secure his departure in the months that followed.
What’s the latest news about Lymer?
German news outlet Kicker (via Liverpool ECHO) reports that Jürgen Klopp’s accusations have weighed on Leimer’s moves in the last transfer window.
The Austrian international entered the final year of his contract with Leipzig and was also believed to be on the radar of Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
However, Leimer’s £25 million price tag seemed to alienate his potential suitors, and no formal offers from Liverpool or Munich materialized.
Klopp instead brought in Arthur Melo from Juventus on a one-season loan deal to fix his midfielder’s problems, but he has only played 13 minutes so far in the current campaign.
With Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner set to become free agents in the summer of 2023, Liverpool are likely to revive interest in Leimer.
What did Jones say about Rymer?
Liverpool are also reportedly keeping Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham on their radar.
However, Jones told GiveMeSport that he doesn’t think Arthur’s temporary move to Anfield will have much of an impact on Reimer’s pursuit, as they are “different types of targets”.
He said: “I think they are different types of targets. You may be watching again.”
How about a limer?
Leimer has made 167 appearances for Leipzig, scoring 11 goals and providing 18 assists. Labeled “Awesome” and “An Imminent Monster” by journalist Alex Stewart.
According to FBref, Box to Box Dynamo is ranked 99th.th Percentile of pressure, 92nd 91 for expected goals without penaltiesst 89 for completed dribblesth Touching in the attacking penalty area 88th for tackle, 87th For progressive carry and 85th For the progressive pass he received among his positional peers last year.
Liverpool could secure another sensible acquisition in the form of Leimer, so it could alleviate some of the midfield woes at minimal cost.
