Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has now decided on his transfer plans for the summer, and this includes the arrival of Jude Bellingham in a multi-player swoop.
That’s according to The Mirror, who share news on the Reds’ potential rebuild at the end of the season.
As per John Cross’ report, the Merseyside outfit continue to target the Borussia Dortmund sensation, despite fears they might not be able to attract him to Anfield if the side’s season goes from bad to worse.
Even before Liverpool’s embarrassing 5-2 loss to Real Madrid last night, Klopp was already planning for a major rebuild in the summer – starting with the midfield.
However, even if the Reds have the money to sign players like Bellingham this summer, they will also need to finish in the top-four – to secure Champions League qualification – if they are to convince them to join.
Klopp is targeting at least three, possibly even four, major signings this summer as he looks to overhaul his squad. This includes Bellingham, who remains as the German’s number one target.
Klopp could make three or four major signings
This is exactly what Liverpool needs this summer – and more.
With Bellingham’s reported £130m price-tag, the club will need a huge budget if they are to secure four major signings.
Starting with the England international, the Reds should then prioritise a couple of middle-level players – those who cost less than £50m.
Matheus Nunes, of Wolverhampton Wanderers, has been regularly touted, as has Chelsea star Mason Mount in recent weeks.
Additionally, perhaps a younger number six could also be brought in; someone like Manu Kone or Khephren Thuram could be a fantastic, more budget-friendly option.
Elsewhere, Liverpool desperately need a first-team quality centre-half.
The Merseyside outfit have recently been linked with RB Leipzig’s Josko Gvardiol, who would be an exceptional signing for the club.
However, his price-tag could reach the £100m mark, so FSG must be willing to invest if they are to see success anytime soon.
