Jurgen Klopp needs to move fast to secure Liverpool’s midfield goal…
Liverpool will have to move fast if they want to beat the competition for Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes, with the Magpies on high alert amid heavyweight suitors entering the frame. Jurgen Klopp is on the hunt for reinforcements in midfield and has reportedly landed in Guimaraes after his stellar start at Newcastle.
Liverpool are increasingly in need of revamping their midfield and will be among the clubs in the market for a player in that area in 2023. James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita are all expected to leave on free transfers at the end of the season. .
Meanwhile, Jordan Henderson, 32, and Thiago Alcantara, 31, cannot be trusted to play weekly, and it would be a surprise to see Arthur Melo’s loan extended. Klopp has worked with Liverpool sporting director Julian Ward to identify potential candidates to refresh his ranks next term, with Guimaraes listed on the shortlist.
According to Brazilian media Sports TNTLiverpool have joined Chelsea and Real Madrid in showing interest in the 24-year-old. And Real have already inquired about his availability, prompting Newcastle to take potentially decisive action in the hope of moving him away from Tyneside next year.

The report claims that Newcastle are preparing an excellent new contract at St. James’ Park to try to fend off high-profile interest in their signing. They are willing to offer the Brazilian maestro some £200,000 a week, making him the highest-paid player in the club’s history.
Guimaraes is under contract with Newcastle until 2026, but it looks like he will be rewarded with better terms in response to his impressive start in English football. If he refuses an extension, he will pave the way for Liverpool and their rivals to launch their chase.

But the Reds may look to move quickly and even make an offer in January to avoid the risk of him agreeing to new terms. Klopp will be keen to add a prominent name to his midfield department ahead of the 2023/24 season after missing out on Aurelien Tchouameni in the summer.
Jude Bellingham is heavily linked with a return to England amid his impressive exploits at Borussia Dortmund, with a move to Anfield one of his main options. But while there is likely to be a fight for his services next summer, Guimaraes could also be the subject of another, and Liverpool are prepared to be involved in both.
