Another European qualification boost Liverpool acquires as €100m midfield ‘target’ arises.

Your morning newspaper summary from Liverpool for the 25th of April.

Manchester United made a proposition to Liverpool regarding a new European qualification route.

It’s not very often that you’ll see Liverpool fans showing their support for Manchester United.

And to tell you the truth, they probably weren’t on Sunday afternoon when the Old Trafford giants eased their way into the FA Cup final with a penalty shootout triumph against Brighton & Hove Albion at Wembley, but the fact that the defeat for the Seagulls was genuinely good news for the Reds was a surprise.

At the very least, it will improve their prospects of qualifying for European football the following season.

There is room for seven English teams in this competition. After United were eliminated from the Europa League by Sevilla on Thursday night, any team that finishes in the top four of the Premier League will automatically qualify for the Champions League.

As a result, the possibility of Erik ten Hag’s team finishing in fifth place and still taking one of the Champions League places as Europa League winners has been eliminated.

Liverpool has a chance to sign a midfielder for a reasonable price despite the player having a release clause of €100 million.

Liverpool continue to be linked with a multitude of midfielders ahead of their planned summer overhaul of the engine room.

Their decision earlier this month to turn away from a prospective move for long-term target Jude Bellingham only increased the amount of conjecture and uncertainty around their future midfielder acquisitions.

The club is interested in acquiring at least two new midfielders, and Mason Mount of Chelsea has emerged as the top target.

Conor Gallagher, Matheus Nunes, Ryan Gravenberch, Joao Palhinha, Alexis Mac Allister, Moises Caicedo, Nicola Barella, Ruben Neves, Youri Tielemans, Teun Koopmeiners, and James Maddison are just some of the names that have been mentioned in connection with the Reds on multiple occasions.

Another name has been brought up again in those transfer rumors, and it has been said that the Reds are among the clubs that have been keeping an eye on Yunus Musah, who currently plays for Valencia, during the entirety of this season.
