Liverpool look to hijack Juventus deal for £30m PSG star with straight Firmino swap

Leandro Paredes celebrates winning a match with his team-mates

Liverpool have reportedly ‘set their sights’ on Leandro Paredes and could use Roberto Firmino in a straight swap to land the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have had a rotten start to the season, picking up just two points in three games after draws with Fulham and Crystal Palace and defeat to Manchester United on Monday night.

They have been ravaged by injuries, leading Klopp to be questioned as to whether they will look to bolster their squad before the end of the transfer window, with central midfield a particular area of concern.

On whether Liverpool will need to add to their midfield options, Klopp said earlier this week: “A little difficult (to answer), I’m not really the right person to ask.

“As a manager, I’d like to have more players who are available (to play), naturally. But that’s all I can say. We’re always working on it.

“But whether we can do something, I don’t know.”

It appears then that Liverpool are in the market for a new midfielder and transfer rumours are rife as a result.

A report on Thursday claimed they’ve made a £60m for Frenkie de Jong, who’s been Manchester United’s top target all summer, while Calciomercato now claim they’re interested in Paredes.

The 28-year-old – who joined PSG for £36m in 2019 – has made 117 appearances for the Ligue 1 side and has 44 caps for Argentina.
