Krychowiak could be a useful player for Liverpool, but Klopp should be turning his attention elsewhere

Liverpool are considering a move for PSG midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak who impressed for Poland at the World Cup, according to The Sun.

What’s the story?

The 28-year-old moved to PSG in 2016 from Sevilla and has gone on to make 11 appearances for the French giants.

The defensive midfielder spent last season on loan at West Bromwich Albion and enjoyed one of his finest games of the season against Liverpool in the Baggies’ 3-2 FA Cup success at Anfield back in January, registering two tackles, four interceptions, three key passes and three aerial battles won.

Now Reds boss Jurgen Klopp wants to sign up the enforcer who is valued at £16.2million on Transfermarkt as a replacement for Emre Can who has joined Juventus.

A sensible replacement

Krychowiak played every minute of Poland’s World Cup campaign and impressed from midfield, scoring against Senegal.

It is unlikely that he would start for Liverpool after they spent big money bringing Naby Keita and Fabinho to Anfield, but he would be a solid replacement for Can and a useful squad player to shore up the midfield when necessary.

However, Liverpool already have a crowded midfield with their new additions plus Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Adam Lallana, James Milner and Giorginio Wijnldum, so perhaps Klopp would be better off spending that sort of money to look for defensive and goalkeeping reinforcements instead.
