Liverpool added four new midfielders to their squad this summer but Jurgen Klopp is “obsessed” with trying to bring another young star to Anfield in 2024.
The Reds added Alexis MacAllister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch to their squad ahead of the current season but have been linked to several midfielders ahead of the winter transfer window.
One target is said to be Man City’s Kalvin Phillips as the England star is expected to leave the Etihad but according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Liverpool are “obsessed” about signing Boca Juniors midfielder Ezequiel Fernandez despite interest in the player from AC Milan and Benfica.

The 21-year-old is making a big impression in Argentina at such as young age having already played 43 times for Boca.
According to the Liverpool Echo via TeamTalk, Alexis Mac Allister is a huge fan of his countryman and has urged the Reds to make a move for the defensive midfielder as soon as possible.
The World Cup winner could play a role in Liverpool winning the race for Fernandez but it remains to be seen if the Merseyside club makes an official move for the Boca star.
