Agent opens up and tells Liverpool boss Klopp midfielder wants summer move
The agent of Leipzig star Emil Forsberg has confirmed that his client is looking to leave the club, having previous been linked with the likes of Liverpool this transfer window.
Forsberg has remained loyal to Leipzig over the seasons despite all the speculation linking him with a big money move to the Premier League with one of its biggest clubs, the Gunners, who have been linked with a move ever since Arsene Wenger was impressed.
But the Gunners interest has wavered over the past few transfer windows and that has led to speculation in the media that Jurgen Klopp may try and secure a bargain transfer deal this summer.
It is no secret that Klopp is seeking to improve his side this summer, as he seeks to add a bit more strength in depth to his side as he seeks to beat off Manchester City for that Premier League title.
Now, Forsberg’s agent has criticised RB Leipzig over broken promises, and to either give his client a pay rise or put him on the transfer list.
“Emil is obviously disappointed, he has a chance to take the next step, and now the people who made promises to him last year do not stick to it,” he said on the TalkSport website.
Forsberg has been a decent player for Forsberg over the seasons and is the star performer with the club, but he is not good enough to make that move to the Premier League and sign for a side like Liverpool, who need superstars in a bid to get back into winning the Premier League title.
So if he does make that move to the Premier League, then it would be a massive shock to see him sign with the Reds, as the club are at that stage where they need players that will challenge the first team rather than just play back-up.
The Premier League is a big step up for Forsberg and he needs to play for one of the lower places sides before making that transition to one of the best clubs in Europe right now.
