Liverpool are plotting a last-minute swoop of Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Daichi Kamada, reports from England have claimed.
- Liverpool try to hijack Kamada transfer
- Japanese star looked to sign for AC Milan
- Midfielder will leave Frankfurt on a free transfer
What’s the news?
Liverpool is still looking to strengthen their midfield for the upcoming season and, according to various sources, they have set their sights on the Japanese player Kamada. The 26-year-old midfielder from Frankfurt seemed to be on his way to AC Milan, but Liverpool is reportedly trying to hijack the transfer at the last moment.
Kamada arrived at Frankfurt in 2019, joining from the Belgian club Sint-Truiden. He has played 178 matches for the German club, scoring 40 goals. Over the past three seasons, the midfielder has been a key player for the Bundesliga club, helping them win the DFB Pokal and the Europa League.
Kamada is particularly interesting for Liverpool because he has an expiring contract and has expressed his desire for a new challenge. There were indications that the midfielder had already signed with AC Milan, but with the reports coming from England, it seems that Liverpool now has the upper hand.
The question now is whether Milan had indeed reached an agreement with the Japanese player. From Italy, it was expected that he would report to Milan’s training complex next week to undergo the final medical checks and sign his multi-year contract.
