James Maddison is now the primary target for Liverpool after failing to sign Star AustriaOne of the players who has contributed the most goals and assists in the Premier League may be among the first to join the Reds as they overhaul their midfield for the upcoming campaign.
Liverpool’s urgent need for further reinforcements in January has only been highlighted by Luis Diaz’s injury, which will sideline the Colombian international player for three months.The Reds had a difficult weekend overall because they were trounced by a French club, which is how Diaz got hurt. Despite the fact that it was only a friendly, Jurgen Klopp’s team’s complete collapse in the second half in Dubai against a team that had just days earlier been humiliatingly destroyed by Arsenal brought to light the fact that there is still a lot of room for improvement in the team’s play in the second half of the season.
And doing so might very well entail working with a transfer broker. The Reds are reportedly no longer in the running to sign one of their main targets, but rumors also claim that they are now interested in signing James Maddison from the Premier League. This week on Mirror Football, we examine all the most recent rumors about transfers coming out of Anfield.
Maddison becomes top target
James Maddison has reportedly become Liverpool’s “top target” in the midfield position after witnessing him shine in the Premier League once more this season. Maddison is now a Leicester player.
Even though they won the FA Cup in 2021, the Foxes have had trouble upholding their high standards. Maddison is therefore likely to quit the team just as he is entering his prime. After competing for a berth in the top four in each of the previous two seasons, the Foxes’ performance began to erode over the course of the preceding 18 months.
Maddison has reportedly become Liverpool’s “top target,” according to the Spanish news source Fichajes. The same source adds that Manchester United and Newcastle both have great expectations for the England international.

Liverpool back in for Championship star?
Rumors are swirling that Liverpool are interested in signing Sander Berge from Sheffield United as Jurgen Klopp looks to bolster his midfield.
Over the summer, there were rumors that the Reds were considering signing the Norwegian, but nothing came of it. In spite of this, Liverpool might try to ultimately recruit the Norwegian in January due to the fact that he is very inexpensive compared to a number of other targets.
According to a French website called Jeunes Footeux, Liverpool might “go on the attack” in the upcoming month in an effort to close a deal. However, the article states that they will have to contend with Chelsea because both organizations expect a number of midfield exits in the upcoming summer.
