Liverpool remain interested in Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Florian Neuhaus, according to Christian Falk, with negotiations appearing to have started.
The Bundesliga reporter had responded to a claim by Sport1 reporter Florian Plettenberg that talks had recently started between the midfielder’s club and the Reds.
True ✅ There is always an interest in @lfc to Florian Neuhaus and there was contact. But no concrete negotiations so far https://t.co/cqkDumhOpz

Gini Wijnaldum’s departure on a free – who has since joined Mauricio Pochettino at PSG – prompted the need for a midfielder replacement, especially given the considerable loss of reliability in the middle of the park.

Given that the Netherlands international has missed less than 6% of Liverpool’s total league appearances since joining Jurgen Klopp in 2016, it couldn’t be clearer that a failure to replace him would be comparable to the decision not to buy a new center-back last summer.

Injuries will inevitably be part of our future campaigns; if we don’t find a new midfielder, we will risk another season defined by injuries rather than a trophy.
Jordan Henderson is in an ideal position to influence Liverpool’s next major summer signing
