Liverpool fans wanted Gini Wijnaldum replaced over the summer. The Reds instead only brought in a centre back. Thereafter it was just sales, loans and contract renewals. Next summer could be what we were waiting for. The Daily Star has claimed Liverpool are leading the race to sign Jude Bellingham.
Gini Wijnaldum replacement needed
Over the summer we saw a vital player’s contract expire.
During his time at Anfield Gini Wijnaldum played more minutes than any other Liverpool player.
However, the Dutchman and the club couldn’t agree terms on a new deal.
As a result he left on a free transfer, joining PSG’s bosman revolution.
Given how reliable he was fitness wise plenty of Kopites were crying out for a replacement. Injuries to Harvey Elliott, Thiago and Naby Keita this season have already proved fears somewhat justified.
Liverpool lead race to sign Jude Bellingham
The Reds could look to a youngster for the solution to the Gini exit.
According to the Daily Star, Liverpool are leading the race to sign Jude Bellingham.
The outlet made the claim when discussing Manchester United’s midfield options with the Red Devils set to turn to Kalvin Phillips instead of Bellingham.
Eurosport previously claimed that Dortmund would want around £100m for the 18-year-old midfielder.
However, Bild has claimed that Jürgen Klopp is reluctant to raid his former club.
What RTK has to say
If Liverpool sign Bellingham then the midfield is sorted for a decade.
It would be a smart signing, one which would put us in good stead for some time.
At just 18-years-old he has his whole career ahead of him.
Imagine in a few years’ time seeing Bellingham and Harvey Elliott in the midfield for club and country. What a sight.
