Comparing Florian Neuhaus’ 2020-21 stats to Liverpool’s current midfielders

Quick Reads

After a difficult season, Liverpool will reportedly make a move for Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Florian Neuhaus to bolster their midfield this summer.

According to German outlet Kicker, Jurgen Klopp is said to have earmarked Neuhaus as a potential replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum.

In a recent interview with Kicker, the 23-year-old did not rule out a move in the coming transfer window. “I can’t say what will happen in the summer at the moment,” he said.

We’ve compared Neuhaus’ 2020-21 Bundesliga stats to the corresponding Premier League figures of Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, Curtis Jones, Naby Keita, Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner.

Note: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been left out as he’s only played 188 league minutes this season and though Fabinho is a midfielder, most of his minutes have come at centre-back this season.
