According to Fabrizio Romeo’s Daily Briefing for CaughtOffside, landing Bellingham is their main focus for the moment.
Reds need to rebuild in the middle park quickly, and it’s clear that a young elite player like Bellingham would be a great choice to replace Jordan Henderson or Thiago Alcantara.
It could still be a tough battle for the England international’s signing next summer. One can imagine that many Liverpool fans will hope the club has other options in case this doesn’t happen.
Bellingham’s England teammate James Maddison is being mentioned, but Romano insists that there are no negotiations between him and any other clubs. Romano stated that Liverpool will look for new midfielders next year. This is because they have failed to sign Aurelien Tchouameni this summer.
“Graeme Souness suggested that Bellingham might not be enough competition, so Jurgen Klopp could try to sign James Maddison.
“I am sure Liverpool will be linked to 100 midfielders over the coming months, according to both media reports as well as pundit comments such this. We are sure they will be busy in 2023 with midfield changes.
“At this time, however, there are still not clubs in negotiations to Maddison…so it will be interesting to see what Liverpool decides to do.” Bellingham is still the priority for the moment. Nothing has changed.”
