Jürgen Klopp is set to go from Liverpool, leaving behind another talented player in the form of Lucas Leiva, who was acquired for a significant fee of $21 million. This signing is considered one of Klopp’s last successful transfers during his tenure at the club.

Liverpool fans had a varied reaction when the team acquired Wataru Endō last summer. Shortly after the Reds failed to secure a deal of over a hundred million for Moisés Caicedo, they returned to seeking opportunities in overlooked areas.

Currently, the Japan international is gaining equal popularity among Liverpool fans as he is with supporters of his national team. Furthermore, there are notable parallels being drawn between this player and one of the most well-liked individuals to have played for Liverpool in the Premier League era. This player, who excelled in the defensive midfield position, had successful stints under five different Liverpool managers before departing for Lazio in the summer of 2017.

Unfortunately, as you may have already inferred from the headline, it is Lucas Leiva who is the subject of this news. Over the course of ten years, he made 247 appearances in the Premier League for Liverpool. Particularly in his later years, he excelled as a defensive midfielder.
