Liverpool’s latest signing, Wataru Endo, is ready to make his eagerly anticipated debut for the club. The Japanese midfielder recently completed his move to Merseyside but had to wait for his work permit to be cleared before taking to the pitch. Fortunately for Liverpool fans, the club confirmed that Endo has now received the necessary clearance and is set to be part of the matchday squad for the upcoming game against Bournemouth at Anfield.
The big question on everyone’s mind is whether Endo will start the game or be named on the bench. While Alexis Mac Allister is expected to retain his position in the deep midfield role, manager Jurgen Klopp has expressed his eagerness to give Endo a chance to prove himself. Klopp believes that there will be no physical issues in throwing the talented midfielder straight into the team.
Endo is expected to play in the same position he held during his time at Stuttgart, with some minor adjustments to fit Liverpool’s unique playing style. Klopp has high hopes for the 23-year-old and is confident that he will quickly adapt to his new surroundings.
Liverpool didn’t spare any expenses to secure Endo’s signature, shelling out a hefty £16 million for the midfielder. This comes on the back of the arrivals of Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai earlier in the summer, as Klopp looks to strengthen his squad for the upcoming season.
In addition to Endo, Liverpool is also set to have Stefan Bajcetic back in the squad. With a strong lineup and new signings, the team will be looking to maintain their winning momentum and continue their impressive start to the season.
With all eyes on Anfield, Liverpool fans are eagerly awaiting Endo’s debut. The talented midfielder has a lot to prove, and supporters are hopeful that he will make an immediate impact on the pitch. The game against Bournemouth will provide an exciting glimpse into what Endo brings to the table and how he will contribute to Liverpool’s success this season.
