Liverpool continues to work on the planning of its squad for the current Premier League season, taking into account that they have suffered a significant loss: Thiago Alcántara. The Spaniard suffered a serious injury that will make him miss several matches and will force Jürgen Klopp to rotate in the midfield, where he does not have players who can offer the same as him.

The German coach would have in his sights a player who can arrive this summer and who can fill the role of Thiago Alcantara in the starting lineup. We are talking about Matheus Nunes.

As reported by Correiro da Manha, Liverpool are interested in acquiring the services of Matheus Nunes in this summer transfer market with the intention of replacing Thiago Alcantara and continue the process of renewal of the squad that, in several areas, already has an advanced age.

The 23-year-old Portuguese midfielder has been an important part of Ruben Amorin's team in recent years. He arrived at Sporting CP in January 2019 and made the jump to the first team in May 2020. Last season he scored 4 goals and distributed 5 assists in 50 games played, being important in the vast majority of matches. He has 100 appearances with the first team at the age of 23.

Nunes can fill a hole in Liverpool’s squad

It is a profile that can play both midfield and inside, being a profile that can also contribute to the possible absences of Fabinho or Jordan Henderson. He is a player that Klopp likes a lot, who knows that he needs to continue strengthening the squad in order not to move away from the fights for the titles.
