He is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Brazil. As a member of Brazil national football team, Bruno Guimaraes won 8 caps and he scored one goal.

His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.

Adding a midfielder remains Liverpool’s top priority this winter and Jürgen Klopp will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.

Klopp is a long term admirer of Guimaraes and believes he can get the most out of the Brazil international.

The Reds are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.

There is no doubt that Guimaraes will take Liverpool’s midfield to a different level.

According to the report, “Liverpool are showing firm interest in the signing of Newcastle’s ever-improving midfielder Bruno Guimaraes. Jurgen Klopp’s side are very much in the market to strengthen their midfield options in 2023. Indeed, they will likely make at least two new signings with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita both likely to leave on free transfers. Furthermore, James Milner is likely in his final season at Anfield, with the veteran star turning 37 in January. And both Jordan Henderson and Thiago are showing signs of slowing down. Both are over 30 now and both have already succumbed to injuries this season. As such, midfield additions are very much in the club’s thinking with sporting director Julian Ward drawing up a wanted list. Now, according to TNT Sport in Brazil, the name of Guimaraes features highly on that wishlist.”

Liverpool will have to present a really enticing offer to bring Newcastle to the negotiating table. They have the resources to tempt them but it will be interesting to see if they are willing to overpay for the player.
