EXCLUSIVE: Liverpool looking at Leicester City’s Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall in midfielder search

Liverpool are looking at Leicester City’s Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall over a possible move, Anfield Watch understands.

The Reds see the Englishman as someone who could come in and help bolster the midfield, with the 24-year-old having Premier League experience.

Liverpool are expected to make further midfield additions this summer, having seen two bids for Romeo Lavia rejected already, while a move for Andre of Fluminense is being investigated.

Sources close to the situation suggest that Liverpool's scouting team has been closely monitoring Dewsbury-Hall's progress over the past season, and the club's interest in him has grown substantially.

It remains to be seen whether Leicester City would be open to negotiating a potential transfer for Dewsbury-Hall. The player's contract situation is that he is signed with the Foxes until 2027.

The player is with the agency Wasserman, who Liverpool have a good relationship with. We are told he is not a direct alternative to Lavia, but could leapfrog him on the list if negotiations with Southampton continue to prove tricky, with the Saints holding firm on their £50m valuation.

It comes after Jurgen Klopp spoke out about his side’s performance following the Reds 4-3 pre-season defeat to Bayern Munich in Singapore.

He said: “Now we have to analyse. We need to look at what’s physical. We did a lot in training, especially yesterday in tough circumstances. You saw with the goals we conceded it was mainly down to a lack of concentration.

"They were very similar situations. That’s not allowed so we need to analyse properly and I’ll have enough time to do that on the flight home.

“I hate losing. When it happens, I feel it, but it’s pre-season and a strong opponent.

“We’ve had two camps in a row and this is the last day. The most important information of all is that nobody got hurt. Really cool.”

Liverpool kick off their Premier League campaign away to Chelsea on 13 August, and currently do not have a fit, recognised defensive midfielder, following the £40m exit of Fabinho to Al Ittihad earlier in the week.
