Jose Enrique believes Jurgen Klopp should target free agent Christian Eriksen this summer, following his impressive spell at Brentford. The Reds are looking to strengthen in the middle of the park this summer, and the Danish playmaker could be a perfect addition.
Going through her instagram, Enrique described Eriksen as follows: “Another interesting player who could be our solution to our midfield.” The midfielder scored five goals and provided assists in 11 top appearances for the Bees last season, in their outstanding first season in the Premier League.
Enrique continued: “And not spending anything because he’s a free agent. It’s a short-term solution but we can wait for Bellingham next season.” This may be a key factor for the Reds, they recently completed the signing of Uruguay striker Darwin Nunez for £64million so they could be short of funds.

Klopp’s side aren’t particularly rich in numbers in midfield, with James Milner, Jordan Henderson and Thiago all coming towards the end of their careers, so they’ll likely need more rest next season. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also set to leave this summer, with Aston Villa and West Ham leading the race to sign the Englishman. Therefore, a move for the former Tottenham man seems like a no-brainer.
