Liverpool has expressed a strong interest in signing Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse, but they are willing to exercise patience and wait until later in the summer transfer window before making their move.
Following Southampton’s relegation, the club has set a price tag of £50 million for Ward-Prowse, acknowledging that the midfielder is likely to depart.
Throughout his tenure at Southampton, Ward-Prowse has featured in 343 matches and scored 49 goals, establishing himself as a key figure in the team. While primarily occupying the central midfield position, he also possesses the versatility to play as an attacking midfielder, right midfielder, and even as a right-back. His ability to take free kicks with precision and skill is particularly noteworthy.
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool remains confident that the valuation placed on Ward-Prowse will decrease as the transfer deadline approaches, giving them more favorable negotiating terms.
In addition to Liverpool’s interest, Newcastle United and West Ham have also shown a desire to acquire the services of the talented midfielder.
