Liverpool must be hugely disappointed that their move to sign Nabil Fekir from Lyon broke down, as announced on the French club’s official Twitter page, but manager Jurgen Klopp can recover quickly from that heartbreak by signing a player who would transform his midfield and take his team to a whole new level.
AS Roma star Radja Nainggolan.
Nainggolan is one of the best and most complete midfielders in the world, and Liverpool would be wise to make a move for the 30-year-old in the summer transfer window.
A dynamic, combative and hard-working midfielder, the Roma star is creative as well and can score some superb goals.
Driving the team forward, making tackles and challenges and dropping back to help out his defence, Nainggolan is the dream midfielder for any club.
Nainggolan, who is valued at €60 million (£52.79m) by the the CIES Football Observatory, would be perfect playing alongside Naby Keita and Fabinho and would complete Liverpool’s midfield.
With Nainggolan not part of the Belgium squad for the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia this summer, Liverpool would not have to wait for a month to get the deal done.
However, with Inter Milan interested in the Roma midfielder and with the Roman club open to selling him, as reported by Calciomercato, Liverpool will have to hurry if they want to sign the Belgian and complete their midfield.
