According to the dependable Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool have now started taking baby steps to sign Jude Bellingham in the upcoming January transfer window
Fabrizio Romano indicates Liverpool are all about business this January window with Bellingham
By their lofty standards, the Reds have had a challenging season thus far. However, it appears that the new year may bring them some relief. Although Mane left Liverpool during the summer, Mohamed Salah and the addition of Darwin Nunez from Benfica have allowed the Reds to maintain a powerful forward line.
The Uruguayan international has a decent stats chart so far with five league goals in 10 games. Meanwhile, there have been some injuries in the Liverpool camp this season. Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota are both presently out, and the midfield has been a similar story.
Since Naby Keita’s contract expires at the end of the current campaign, Klopp may need to make a few additions including Jude Bellingham in January to help his team gear up Post-World Cup.
Liverpool prospects this January window
“In January, it will be about the opportunities. I think they need some fresh players to help Jurgen Klopp”
Klopp undoubtedly would have like to have Jude Bellingham join the team in January in an ideal scenario. One of the many European powerhouses vying for the midfielder from Borussia Dortmund is Liverpool.
Dortmund are not expected to offload one of their finest players in the midst of the campaign, though.
Thus, Klopp will probably need to seek elsewhere if he wants to recruit someone for the center of the park in January.
Samuel Chukwueze of Villarreal has been mentioned as a potential transfer target for Liverpool in the future. It seems like a lot simpler transaction. Again, given the Merseyside club’s attack-related injury issues this season, adding a new wide receiver or forward makes sense.
However, if Liverpool were to be really busy in the forthcoming transfer window, it would be unexpected given their record-breaking spending on Nunez in the summers. Bellingham, one of their primary targets, doesn’t appear to be accessible at the moment. Given that, you can anticipate them to be quite busy the summer after this.
