Fans have been hoping that the club would sign a new midfielder but Klopp kept on insisting that the team does not need one.

His current contract with the German side will expire in less than a year and as per Kicker, the 25-year-old is valued at £25m (30 million euros).

On the other hand, Neves is a proven quality Premier League star. The Portuguese international mainly plays in the No. 6 role, he is a solid tackler and quality passer of the ball.

Moreover, the former Porto captain is brilliant at taking set-pieces and can score long-range goals as well. Last term, he netted 4 goals and provided 2 assists for Wolves.

The Seleccao man’s current deal at the Molineux will expire in 2024 and he is valued (Sport) at around £42m (50 million euros).

In your view, are Laimer and Neves good enough to reinforce the midfield at Anfield?
