Manu Kone and Khephren Thuram are two players who Jermaine Pennant, a former winger for Liverpool, believes will be beneficial to the club’s chances of winning the Champions League the following season.
Both of these midfielders have been linked to a move to Anfield since the summer, and it is anticipated that they will complete the transaction in the not-too-distant future.
A considerable retooling of Klopp’s midfield occurred just before the start of the current campaign.
Jordan Henderson and Fabinho were allowed to depart the club after Naby Keita, James Milner, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were granted release from their respective contracts at the conclusion of their respective terms.
It wasn’t until later in the window that he added Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch, although he moved rapidly to bring in Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai. Pennant believes that in order for Liverpool to be competitive for major prizes, the club needs to put in much more effort.
Both Borussia Monchengladbach’s Kone and Nice’s Thuram, who are both 22, are considered to be rising stars in the central midfield position.
Pennant is a strong fan of both of them and believes that they would implement the required modifications in order to assist the Reds in tying the record for most wins in the Champions League with a seventh consecutive title.
Both Kone, who plays for Borussia Monchengladbach, and Thuram, who plays for Nice, are 22 years old and have established themselves as two of the most promising midfielders in Europe.
Pennant is a tremendous fan of both of them and believes that they would be willing to make the necessary modifications in order to assist the Reds in winning the Champions League for the seventh time.
Pennant told Lucky Block, “I’d like to see Liverpool sign a proper enforcer in January,” and he expressed this desire.
In my opinion, Manu Kone is the best candidate for the position.
In my opinion, he has what it takes to play the number six position, and I would encourage Mac Allister to move up the lineup more.
“Khephren Thuram, for whom I have always had a tremendous amount of admiration, and Kone, respectively, would be the icing on the cake.
Even though he does not play in the 6 spot, you could still be able to figure something out.
If we are successful in signing them in January, we will have a formidable force in the middle of the field.
When you include the front five and guys like Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alisson, and Virgil van Dijk in the back, the team transforms into an incredible one.
Pennant expressed happiness with the deals Klopp made over the summer, although emphasizing the necessity for additional signings to be made in the future.
“I think this ranks among Klopp’s best transfer windows,” he continued. “I think this ranks among the best transfer windows.”
He excels in every endeavor he undertakes.
Even though I’d like to see Mac Allister play a bit further forward, Dominik Szoboszlai is off to a fantastic start, and Allister is a quality addition to the team, I still think it would be best if he played closer to the middle.
“Once Endo has settled down, he will be trustworthy, while Ryan Gravenberch also appears to have promising potential.
Now that they have it, Liverpool possesses the new vigor and fresh legs that they required in order to win.
For the first time in a considerable amount of time, it appears that Liverpool’s midfield won’t be completely overwhelmed by the opposition.
They are powerful, self-assured players who contribute by setting goals for themselves and contributing to the team.
This midfield has already scored more goals than it did all of last season, despite the fact that Henderson may not have scored a single goal and Fab may have scored no more than two goals.
Already, this particular midfield is superior to that one.
