Liverpool want to improve their ageing midfield. It’s a position which has been of great concern to Jurgen Klopp this season, particularly since injuries in this position has hindered them from making their way up the table.

A lot of the talk involves Jude Bellingham. It is obviously Jurgen Klopp’s dream to sign the Englishman since the set the world alight at the World Cup. He’s one of the most promising and generational midfielders on the market, although he’s bound to cost a lot.

There are certainly cheaper options for Klopp, who may even wish to dabble in the free-agent market. According to Tuttosport, current Juventus midfielder but potentially soon-to-be free agent Adrien Rabiot has made a remarkable claim about following Liverpool. He signalled Steven Gerrard as his idol while developing, which made him follow Liverpool.

It remains to be seen whether Adrien Rabiot will stay at Juventus or sign a contract with another club. The report states that Rabiot is happy at Juventus and he does get a lot of game time there, it’s just a case of meeting in the middle financially, since Juve aren’t doing the best in that regard.

Rabiot has significantly matured as a player. Where once he was a bit of a rebel and struggled to be disciplined, he now plays in a much calmer manner, and could be a real asset to any top European club. It wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world for Klopp to sign Rabiot for free, instead of spending upwards of £100m to sign Bellingham.

Rabiot has been linked with a move to the Premier League countless times before, but for good reason. He uses his physicality well, something he could use more in the Premier League without harsh punishment. If Liverpool make the deal happen, their midfield problems would certainly be resolved.

Do you think Liverpool will sign Adrien Rabiot?
