Liverpool appear to be in desperate need of midfield reinforcements with Thiago Alcantara, Curtis Jones and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all injured. According to Kevin Campbell, retired footballer and current commentator, the Reds should move to lure Youri Tielemans as he would like to join the Anfield club and can improve Klopp's squad.

"I'm sure Tielemans would be interested in joining Liverpool. When you look at Thiago, his game and what he brings to Liverpool, Tielemans could come in and replace him. Thiago brings artistry to that Liverpool midfield. Tielemans brings that as well," the Arsenal legend told Football Insider.

"He could also add goals to that side. He would give Liverpool another dimension, if he went to Anfield. The Reds lack quality, depth and creativity in midfield at the moment and a versatile star like Tielemans, who can play anywhere in midfield, would be a quality addition," he added.

A creative central midfielder and also an attacking midfielder if required, the Belgian international can play effectively as a deep-lying playmaker. The 25-year-old started 29 Premier League games for Leicester City last season and contributed directly to 10 goals (six goals and four assists).

His current contract with the King Power expires in less than a year and the Foxes are willing to let him leave for a fee of £25m.
