Although the 2022/23 season has not yet ended, Liverpool has already made calculations in the transfer market. The top two targets that The Kop is aiming for have also been identified.
Despite the fact that the 2022/23 season has not yet ended, it can be confirmed as an unsuccessful year for Liverpool. They were eliminated quite early in all cup competitions while also being at risk of missing out on Champions League qualification for the next season.
The lack of stable form, combined with underperforming key players, has caused a serious decline in the performance of the Reds. Therefore, Liverpool’s leadership is very urgent about the transfer work.
According to information from GiveMeSport, the top two targets that Anfield’s team is aiming for in the summer of 2023 have been clarified. Specifically, the central defensive duo of Kim Min-Jae and Josko Gvardiol are the names that The Kop is most interested in. Whether both of them will be Liverpool transfer done deals this 2023 summer?
The center-back position has been a weakness for Liverpool this season as Virgil Van Dijk has been out of form and Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip have been plagued by injuries. As a result, Jurgen Klopp cannot be complacent about what is happening. Both Kim Min-Jae and Gvardiol have shown impressive form at their respective clubs.
While the South Korean star is a cornerstone factor in helping Napoli stay at the top of the Serie A table and reach the Champions League quarter-finals, the Croatian player is also an indispensable name in the RB Leipzig squad.
These stars are all receiving a lot of attention from European giants such as Manchester United, Arsenal, and even Manchester City. Therefore, it will not be easy for Liverpool to achieve the goal of signing both of these names.
Compared to Gvardiol, Kim Min-Jae’s contract with his current club has a shorter term and will only last until the summer of 2025. Therefore, the price that Napoli can demand in this deal is expected to be no more than 70 million euros.
This is a figure that Liverpool is entirely capable of meeting with its strong financial resources. If you want to know more about Liverpool transfer targets this summer transfer window as well as other football transfer news today and rumor, follow and visit our website daily.
