Liverpool run rule over Gustav Isaksen

Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing 21-year-old Danish winger Gustav Isaksen from Midtjylland.

According to a report from Ekstra Bladet, Liverpool are one of the few clubs monitoring FC Midtjylland winger Gustav Isaksen ahead of a potential move in the summer transfer window.

The 21-year-old Danish winger is highly rated around Europe and has a big future ahead of him. Isaksen is already a key player for Midtjylland. He has seven goals and three assists to his name this season.

Liverpool could certainly use a quality winger, and the youngster could prove to be a quality long-term replacement. The 21-year-old has also emerged on the radars of clubs like Arsenal, Newcastle United, and West Ham United.

Isaksen has the potential to develop into a top-class player, and working with Jurgen Klopp could accelerate his development. The Liverpool manager has a proven track record of improving young players. He has helped the likes of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah develop into world-class players at Liverpool and could have a similar impact on Isaksen as well.

Furthermore, Liverpool are one of the biggest clubs in the world, and the opportunity to join them would be hard to turn down. It remains to be seen whether the Reds follow up on their interest with a concrete offer in the coming months.

Liverpool need to add more depth in the wide areas. Salah and Luis Diaz are the only natural wingers at the club, and Klopp has had to use attacking midfielders like Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho in the wide areas at times.

Bringing in Isaksen will only add more quality and depth to the position. The 21-year-old is a right-sided winger, but he can play on the left flank as well. The Danish winger’s versatility will be an added bonus for the Premier League giants.

Ajax, Atalanta, Benfica, and Bayer Leverkusen are also keeping tabs on the youngster, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up eventually. Whoever signs the 21-year-old will have a quality prospect on their hands, and it could prove to be a fruitful long-term investment.
