Liverpool in bidding war for €30m-rated Austria international

Liverpool are keen on bringing Konrad Laimer to the Merseyside giants. And the 25-year-old midfielder is open to joining a PL team. Apparently Man United were keeping tabs on Laimer during the summer transfer window as well, but they decided to sign Casemiro from Real Madrid instead.

Meanwhile, with Konrad open to joining an English club, it will be interesting to see if the Reds decide to make their move during the winter transfer window. Austria international has a deal with RB Leipzig until the summer of 2023. And the Bundesliga giants could look to cash in on him during the winter transfer window.

They will not want to lose a crucial figure on a free transfer, and it makes sense for them to sell him for a nominal price in winter. Even if the move does not happen midway through the campaign, the Austrian midfielder will be able to secure a pre-contract agreement with foreign teams in the winter.

The Merseyside club are in need of midfield reinforcements, and Konrad looks like a perfect signing for them. Currently, Fabinho is going through a rough patch, and Jurgen Klopp needs to bring in more quality for the defensive midfield role. And the Reds have reportedly been in contact with Laimer.

Konrad would challenge the Brazilian midfielder for the starting berth, and the increased competition will only help both footballers improve. It stays to be seen whether the Reds can convince the Bundesliga giants to sell the player for a reasonable price in January.
