Liverpool are ready to give AC Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer the contract he wants to sign him, according to reports.

Milan Reports, citing SportMediaset, claims Liverpool is willing to give Bennacer the £3.5million a year he demands from Milan.

It is alleged that Milan are doing their best to keep Bennacer at the club, but so far the salary has only come in at around £1.5million a year. Bennacer wants a lot more, with £3.5million a year would be his demand. And with Milan faltering on that amount, Liverpool are poised to strike.

The Reds struck late in the transfer window to sign another Serie A player in the form of Arthur Melo. However, all eyes are on January and the summer, where Jurgen Klopp hopes to be supported to reshape his midfield that has served him so well over the years.

Described as a player with high technical qualities who can ‘dominate’ opponents, Bennacer has played more than 100 games for Milan and has capped just 40 for Algeria. Strong in the form of a Fabinho-type player, Bennacer is best known for his playing at the grassroots of the midfield in Serie A.

TBR’s opinion: Bennacer an interesting one for Liverpool

There is certainly a lot to like about Ismael Bennacer. A full-fledged international, a Serie A winner and at 24 the ideal age for Jurgen Klopp to work with him and improve him further.

Should Liverpool choose to go for Bennacer, he would not be the most expensive option of the players on the market. Given that he doesn’t have that much money in Milan, it’s hard to imagine the Rossoneri demanding a huge amount for Bennacer.

For now, it’s one for Liverpool fans to watch. But it’s clear that the Reds will be back on the market in the next few windows.
