Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha


The 27-year-old joined Fulham in the summer from Sporting Lisbon and helped the newly promoted Premier League team—which had previously struggled—finish in the top 10.

Making the most tackles (147) throughout the course of the Premier League season was a feat that Joao Palhinha achieved at the top of the list, surpassing even Declan Rice and Moises Caicedo. Idrissa Gueye of Everton comes in third (97), followed by Tyler Adams (89), Casemiro (89), and Caicedo (100), who is the next best player on the list.

The Portugal international is regarded as a Jude Bellingham alternative because it is obvious that Liverpool would adore his aggressive mentality.

Now that Alexis Mac Allister of Brighton is reportedly close to a contract, Jurgen Klopp will need more than one midfielder to walk through his doors this summer.

In that he offers more defensive bite and power in the middle of the park, a player like Palhinha varies slightly from Mac Allister.

Palhinha would be a smart signing by Liverpool

The expectation of more established names to enter Liverpool FC this summer is understandable, but it is not how the club operates.

In addition, historical evidence reveals that the strongest performers are those players or signings who have been under the radar or who have played at a lower level.

A player like Palhinha is worth pursuing since players like Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane came from Southampton, while the Reds miss Gini Wijnaldum, who came from Newcastle United when they were demoted to the Championship.
