Over the past couple of weeks, there has been intense speculation over the future of Ismael Bennacer at San Siro Stadium. According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Liverpool are poised to land Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer.
He has been with AC Milan since 2019, having signed for the club from Empoli for 17.2 million euros. The Algeria international’s current deal expires in 2024.
The midfielder has featured in 21 matches for Milan this term, netting one goal and providing one assist in all competitions.
The 25-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Algeria. Bennacer has also left his mark at the international stage after netting two goals in 40 senior appearances for the Algeria national team.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Liverpool.
Jürgen Klopp wants to sign a new midfielder and Bennacer is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. The report claims that Liverpool manager has extensively scouted Bennacer and is considering a move for the midfielder.
Liverpool will have funds to spend in the market and it will be interesting to see how they approach the winter transfer window.
