Next summer, Liverpool hopes to make significant upgrades to their midfield by acquiring two top-tier players
Football Insider claims that during the next summer transfer window, Liverpool will try to acquire two talented midfielders. In addition, names like Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice have been mentioned in connection to the Reds.
There is no doubt that Jurgen Klopp will want to add depth in the middle of the field towards the end of the season. The summer transfer window will be exciting to watch as Liverpool attempts to add a talent like Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice.
Both players have been outstanding for their current teams, and they will certainly command hefty salaries if they ever change teams. This year, Liverpool’s midfield has been plagued by problems, and the Reds have battled greatly as a team.
The best years of a player’s career are behind him, and that includes veterans like Jordan Henderson and James Milner. Meanwhile, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and Thiago Alcantara have picked up chronic injury concerns. Brazilian midfielder Fabinho has also been unable to rediscover his best form.
If they want to compete for titles again, Liverpool must strengthen their midfield. It is also unclear whether Fenway Sports Group will provide Klopp with a sizable transfer budget this summer.
However, in order to entice the best players for next season, Liverpool will need to place in the top four. Players like Bellingham and Rice, who are among the best in their leagues, will not want to sign with a team that does not compete in the UEFA Champions League.
To sign both players would be a huge coup for Liverpool. Merseyside’s mega club will have to spend much to get both players.
Both players have been linked to many top European teams in recent months, including Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Manchester United. So, it is unclear if Liverpool will be able to beat off European competitors for their services.
