Their recent 3-0 victory over Nottingham Forest showcased their exceptional form, with goals from Diogo Jota, Darwin Núñez, and e. However, the news surrounding Luis Díaz’s family overshadowed the triumph. With upcoming matches against Luton Town and Brentford before the highly anticipated clash with reigning champion Manchester City in November, Jürgen Klopp’s team has adapted well despite the summer departures of Fabinho and Jordan Henderson.

The addition of Ryan Gravenberch, Dominik Szoboszlai, Alexis Mac Allister, and Wataru Endō has brought balance to Liverpool’s midfield, marking the beginning of a new era in the center of the park. Nevertheless, former Manchester United player Hargreaves believes that the Reds still lack one crucial player who could further enhance their chances of winning the title this season.

“I think they are missing one player, and that’s a defensive midfield player,” stated Hargreaves during an interview with Premier League Productions. “I think if Palhinha plays for Liverpool, then they can win the league. He is that good.”

Palhinha has consistently impressed for Fulham since its return to the Premier League last season. His performances even attracted interest from reigning Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich during the summer transfer window. Valued at approximately $24m (£20m/€23m) by CIES, Marco Silva’s side had agreed a deal worth $69m (£57m/€65m) with the Germans before it broke down because they could not source a replacement.

Liverpool is now faced with the decision of whether to pursue Palhinha’s signature and bolster its midfield options. With Hargreaves’ endorsement and the potential impact that Palhinha could have on the team’s title ambitions, the Reds must carefully consider this opportunity. As they aim to reclaim the Premier League trophy, the addition of a defensive midfielder of Palhinha’s caliber could prove to be a game-changer.
