Speculations of signing Paris Saint-Germain player Rabiot has shown how much concern Liverpool are willing to bring in the box-to-box players to Anfield.

The major boost that prompted the Reds came because Rabiot refused to renew his contract.

His form has never gone bad but how he managed to miss the World Cup could be a major concern.

Rabiot has been contacted by Jurgen Klopp on phone according to reports.

Looking at the Reds and their current vigour this season shows how hungry they are but this vibrant side may not suit Rabiot but would rather suit Haidara.

Haidara came into the limelight of football as a potential replacement for Naby Keita.

The Malian midfielder made his mark in the Europa cup last season when he scored a wonderful goal in the quarter-final against Marseille.

The 20-year-old has established himself beyond Leipzig’s expectation. His fluidity with the ball, movement, tackles and interception is far enough good reason to earn him a place ahead of Georginio Wijnaldum in the midfield.

Last season, Manchester City’s manager regarded Liverpool players as “beast” because they all run round the pitch till the end of the match.

Rabiot perhaps may end the claim and rather turn Liverpool’s three bodies at the midfield to ‘lukewarm’.

He drives slowly while looking for gaps, but the Reds prefer a quick thinker, fast and aggressive player with the traditional playing style of the YNWA.

If Klopp can divert his attention away from France, he should extend it to the youngster.

Exclusive: Hope for Chelsea as Sarri could make a U-turn to sign Seria A player.
