English Giants Liverpool FC are linked to the 18-year-old Borussia Dortmund’s wonder-kid Jude Bellingham for a club-record transfer fee. They are also hoping to land FC Barcelona’s three best young players taking advantage of their financial woes.
2021 Summer Transfer Window
Liverpool had a really quiet summer transfer window. Fans only got to enjoy the arrival of star french centre-back Ibrahim Konate. The Defender arrived for a sum of £36 million which is considered a bargain for a player of his calibre.
His signing is considered really important considering the injury crisis faced by Liverpool in the defensive department last season.
Fans’ Disappointment and Klopp’s say
With Fierce-rivals Manchester United making big-money moves on the likes of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane, and Cristiano Ronaldo, Liverpool FC fans were also hoping to see more arrivals only to be left disappointed, as Reds’ transfer window was over with Ibrahim Konate’s arrival.
Despite having a really high-quality squad, fans were hoping for a midfield reinforcement to replace Gini Wijnaldum who left for French club Paris Saint Germain in a free transfer. The fans were also hoping that the club would bring a proper goal-scoring number 9. But Klopp made it very clear that even if they don’t sign any new players, he is satisfied with the quality squad he has.
Liverpool 2022 Squad Overhaul : Potential Arrival of Jude Bellingham
After a disappointing market, fans have got something to be excited about for the next summer. The club has already announced the signing of long term contracts with the likes of Allison Becker, Trent-Alexander-Arnold, Virgil Van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho.
Now, the media reports are suggesting that the club is keeping a close eye on 18-year-old English wonder-kid Jude Bellingham. Liverpool are hoping to land him next summer for a club-record fee of £80 Million.
Though things would be tough for Liverpool as Borussia Dortmund want to keep the player as they already could lose their Star-striker Erling Haaland who is one of the most sought after players in the world.
FC Barcelona’s Trinity
The Reds’ are also hopeful of landing three of the best young talents in the world for a total of £171 million. The three players are Barcelona stars Ansu Fati, Pedri Gonzales, and Ousmane Dembele.
The situation is really in Liverpool’s favour right now as FC Barcelona is facing a huge financial crisis. The financial crisis has forced them to say goodbye to their best player ever, Lionel Messi.
FC Barcelona currently plans on keeping these players. But, the crisis could force them to sell these players, if a good offer arrives.
The players are also going to be out of contract next summer, which would lead to a reduction in their market value. Liverpool can capitalize and land these players. With this, they could also take their revenge on FC Barcelona for snatching Luis Suarez in 2014 and Philippe Coutinho in 2018.
While Jurgen Klopp has always been fond of Ousmane Dembele, who could move under Klopp to rejuvenate his career. Liverpool fans couldn’t be more happier if they are able to land even one of the three.
Ansu Fati is one of the brightest prospects in the footballing world. The winger finished second in the 2020 Golden Boy award only behind Erling Haaland.
Pedri Gonzales on the other hand is the favourite to win this year’s Golden Boy award. His brilliant performances for FC Barcelona and Spanish National Team has made him one of the biggest fan favourites.
Thus, Liverpool can make a team including all the wonder-kids next summer, with Jude Bellingham being the priority.
