Klopp told to forget Mount signing and bring 26-year old Brazilian to Liverpool
Liverpool have been urged to sign Newcastle United midfielder Joelinton in the summer window
Liverpool have not had the best of seasons and will look to delve into that transfer kitty to add players to the side that will freshen up the squad and help them get back to challenging for titles.
That has led to some stunning reports in the media which have claimed that Liverpool are very much interested in a deal to sign Mason Mount – who is yet to agree a new contract at Stamford Bridge.
However – former Liverpool star Hamann has urged his old club to forget about England international Mount and instead turn their attentions to Newcastle’s Joelinton.
The 26-year-old Brazilian has impressed under Eddie Howe, registering eight goals and three assists this term.
‘I would not pay the money that Chelsea want for Mason Mount,’ Hamann told Casinos En Ligne.
‘I think the players in midfield are very similar in their technical ability, Liverpool need a bit more of a physical presence.
‘Joelinton from Newcastle United has that physical presence that Liverpool needs, he can nick a goal too.
‘Alexis Mac Allister will be a brilliant signing, but they’ll have to battle Manchester City for his signature.
‘I can’t see Joelinton leaving Newcastle because he is playing Champions League football next season. But a player with his stature and physicality would be great in that Liverpool midfield.’
Joelinton has been very impressive this season – there is not doubt about that. But he is not good enough to be a regular starter in that Liverpool side, so signing him wouldnt make much of a difference to the side.
