Who will Liverpool aim for next best after giving up Jude Bellingham (Borussia Dortmund), who was their number one recruit?
Reporter Fabrizio Romano, who is familiar with transfer market news, released a list of candidates under the title of ‘Players Liverpool are aiming for as Bellingham substitutes’ on his YouTube channel on the 12th (Korean time).
England midfielder Bellingham is receiving attention from big European clubs as he is rated as one of the best midfielders in Europe at a young age. In particular, Premier League prestigious Liverpool showed great interest in signing Bellingham.
Romano also explained on YouTube, “Bellingham has been a target for Liverpool, Real Madrid and Manchester City, especially Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.”
As a result, many expected that Liverpool would bring Bellingham during the upcoming summer transfer window, but many British local media reported on the 12th that “Liverpool has given up on signing Bellingham.”
Reporter Romano explained why Liverpool withdrew from the race to sign Bellingham, “Liverpool expected the Bellingham transfer fee to be up to 130 million pounds (approximately 214 billion won), so it was dropped from the recruitment race.” 메이저놀이터
“Liverpool want to sign full-backs and centre-backs as well as midfielders in the summer. It’s hard to spend a lot of money on one player,” he added.
Regarding the players to be recruited instead of Bellingham, “Liverpool will sign two or three midfielders instead of giving up Bellingham,” he said. “These will be Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain replacements.”
Romano has mentioned Mason Mount (Chelsea), Matheus Núñez (Wolverhampton), Moises Caicedo and Alexis McAllister (Brighton) as candidates for the Liverpool midfielder.
