Former Liverpool star, Steve McManaman has warned the club against signing Douglas Luiz or Youri Tielemans.
Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp wanted to sign a new central midfielder and brought in Juventus’ star Arthur Melo on loan in the closing stages of the summer transfer window.
The Reds are interested in signing Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund, however, the German side is likely to command a high fee for the in-demand 19-year-old next summer.
But McManaman feels both Tielemans and Luiz do not possess the quality that Klopp needs to strengthen his Liverpool midfield.
“Douglas Luiz and Youri Tielemans are both good Premier League players, but I don’t believe they’re good enough for Liverpool,’ McManaman told Horseracing.net.
“I’m not convinced it will be a smart bit of business by Liverpool to move for Douglas Luiz, regardless of whether his contract is expiring or not.
“Are they good enough to get in the starting line-up of one of the world’s best teams? I just don’t think so at the moment.”
