Arne Slot has been recently appointed as the new Liverpool manager. The board of Liverpool will support Slot in this summer transfer window as he has immense pressure on him of starting the post-Klopp era at Liverpool. He is looking for the right players for his team at every position. One of the positions is the Central Defensive Midfielder. The position has been weak last season due to which the Reds conceded many unnecessary goals. The manager has clearly noticed the absence of Fabinho. Slot believes that Ederson could close the gap between the midfield and defense and also act as an orchestrator in the midfield.

According to the Brazilian journalist Jorge Nicola, Liverpool have made an offer of €45 million. The 24 years old recently won the UEFA Europa League with Atalanta by defeating the most in-form team last season Bayer Leverkusen 3-0. This raised the market price of Ederson which can make Liverpool’s business with the Italian side a bit difficult.

The Premier League is very competitive. Not every player could manage to cope up with the playing style of the league. Also playing for one of the best side in England could also bring more pressure on him. Everything depends on how he gets in with the team if he ever joins them.
