Liverpool could pursue transfer of Premier League attacker if this manager takes over

Posted by

Liverpool fans may be interested to see that Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi would be eager to work with Ansu Fati again at his next club.

De Zerbi has done hugely impressive work at Brighton, with Fati among the signings made during his time at the club, with the young Spaniard joining on loan from Barcelona this season.

With the Italian tactician being linked as someone hugely admired at Liverpool as they plan for life after Jurgen Klopp at the end of this season, as per the Daily Mail, it could be that we’ll then see the Reds pursue a deal for Fati if this is the path they end up going down.

Todo Fichajes report that De Zerbi would be keen to work with Fati, though they mainly mention the Seagulls boss as someone who could try to keep Fati at Barca if he ends up being chosen as the replacement for Xavi.

De Zerbi seems like he could have plenty of interest this summer, and whether it’s Liverpool, Barcelona or someone else entirely, the 44-year-old seems like the kind of candidate who it could be wise to give a lot of power to.

Fati has had some trouble with injuries, but it’s easy to imagine him flourishing under De Zerbi, with Liverpool perhaps in need of more options in attack as Mohamed Salah is not getting any younger, while Luis Diaz, Cody Gakpo and Diogo Jota have not always been that consistent.
