Jurgen Klopp Signs A Contract Extension at Liverpool


Report: Liverpool have two positions they want to fill in the transfer window, with eyes on 'phenomenal' talent

Liverpool have two positions in mind for the upcoming transfer window, according to reports. They’ll certainly spend some cash.

This comes from Goal. They claim that Liverpool will head into the transfer window with two positions in mind. Firstly, they want a midfielder – presumably a long-term one.

Both Jude Bellingham and Aurélien Tchouaméni are on their list, apparently, as two of the best young midfielders on the planet. Right-back, however, is a tough one.

As Goal say, it largely depends on the future of Neco Williams. He’s currently on loan at Fulham and will return to Merseyside next month. What’s unclear is whether the Welshman sticks around.

Liverpool have a big decision there as his desire for first-team football doesn’t mesh well with playing the same position as Trent Alexander-Arnold. The Reds are clearly open to the idea of him moving on if they’re preparing to sign a right-back, though.

Liverpool plan for transfer window

The interest in Bellingham and Tchouaméni is the standout news here. Liverpool have been linked with both recently and rumours of their interest continue to grow.

Honestly, we’d like to see Bellingham arrive at the club. We’re not sure how likely it is in 2022 – Dortmund reportedly want him to stick around for a year – but he’s one of the most perfect signings we can see.

Erling Haaland recently called him ‘phenomenal’ and we’d go along with that. What Bellingham does as a teenager is remarkable and he’d be a wonderful fit for Liverpool’s midfield. We’ve tipped him as the Reds’ first £100m signing, in fact, and believe he justifies that kind of money.

As for right-back, Williams holds the key there. It makes sense to keep him around if he wants to play as a backup, saving Liverpool money and giving them a quality squad player. We just can’t imagine he’d settle for that again after tasting first-team football at Fulham.

But an interesting summer ahead, then. Potentially, it’s one that sees Liverpool’s squad grow even stronger.
