"I’d definitely be looking" - Glen Johnson names Premier League player Reds should sign

Pundit Glen Johnson believes that Liverpool should make a move for Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans.

The Belgium international has been a fine player for the Foxes. Tielemans has scored 25 goals and registered 25 assists in 168 appearances for Leicester City's first-team.

The 25-year-old also scored the decisive goal during the 2021 FA Cup final against Chelsea at Wembley.

Tielemans is out of contract at the conclusion of this season. With that being the case, Johnson would love to see Liverpool sign the midfielder come January.

The 38-year-old is adamant that Liverpool need to sign a few central players.

As quoted by Anfield Watch, Johnson told the Liverpool Echo: "I’d definitely be looking to sign (Tielemans). If it’s safer to secure it now and pay a small fee then I’d do that. I wouldn’t run the risk of allowing anyone else to have him for free.

"He’s the sort of player that could fit into a team relatively straightforwardly. (Luiz) is another good player.

"Liverpool probably do need two or three players in the midfield and if you can snap these sorts of players up, that have Premier League experience, for relatively cheap or even better on a free, then it’s a no-brainer."

Anfield Watch Verdict

We would not be against Liverpool making a move for Tielemans come January. The reality is, he is a very good Premier League midfielder.

As Johnson pointed out, because of Tielemans' contract situation, the Reds would be able to sign him on the cheap.

But, only time will tell if Liverpool are to make a move for the Belgium international.
