During the 2023–24 season, Liverpool has been linked with a lot of players as a huge summer rebuild is anticipated.
As there has only been one permanent addition to the midfield during the past three years (Thiago), and other prominent players with contracts expiring soon, the majority of those have been midfielders.
Mason Mount, a Chelsea player, is one of the players the team has been extensively associated with.
Although James Maddison, a colleague from abroad, has become another name in recent weeks.
Before the most recent loss to Crystal Palace, Rodgers said the following regarding Maddison: “He’s got a great view of the game. He creates goals and scores goals and what he’s improved over the last couple of years has been the intensity in his game when he hasn’t got the ball.”
“But off the pitch he’s very educated, he speaks well about the game, he speaks honestly about it as well in terms of his performance, the team performance.”
Jürgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, would find a lot of that appealing, especially the indications of an increasing intensity off the ball.
Leicester City is supposed to have set a price of £50 million for him, while Tottenham Hotspur is said to be keeping an eye on him.
If Maddison was truly wanted by Liverpool, there might be a transfer war.
