Reported Liverpool transfer target compared to Thiago by teammate

Liverpool are ready to enter the market this summer and want to add another midfielder to the squad, if we can find another player like Thiago Alcantara there won’t be too many supporters who will be upset.

One of the names most recently linked is Enzo Fernández and, while making his debut for Argentina during this international break, his performances have drawn comparisons to our No.6.

Speaking to ESPN (via O Jogo (translated)), Juventus midfielder Leandro Paredes said: “Thiago Alcântara, Mac Allister, Enzo Fernández… Enzo and Alexis can play six, eight and ten. They are players who can give a lot to the team. He is very good “.

This praise from the former PSG player will no doubt thrill some of our fans, as comparing him to the Spanish maestro is praise to be recieved.

The 21-year-old only signed for Benfica this season, so it does seem very premature to link him with a departure from the Portuguese club.

With just one goal in his first seven league appearances, we will have to wait and see what the Argentine midfielder can do in his first campaign in Europe.

We’re set to engage with so many different midfielders in the coming months and it’s hard to know which headlines are to be believed and which are not.

With a reported release clause of £106.5m as well, we’d have to be very confident that the former River Plate man was the ideal player for our midfield.

As we are so heavily linked with Jude Bellingham, it seems highly unlikely that FSG will be able to fund a move for both players, so we’ll just have to wait and see what happens with this one.
