Journalists agreed on the biggest hurdle in Bellingham’s hunt

It’s no secret that Jude Bellingham is at the top of Liverpool’s wish list when it comes to signing a new midfielder in 2023, but James Pearce the athlete It states that this will be a transition for the summer, not the January frame.

“There is little chance that Borussia Dortmund will be open to selling the talented England international in the middle of the season,” says Pearce.

The biggest hurdle in the pursuit of Bellingham appears to be whether Liverpool will be able to buy the Dortmund player.

Klopp was asked on Friday if the Reds could afford a player who could cost more than £100m.

I don’t like talking about money when you talk about a player like him. Klopp replied: Everyone can see that he is simply exceptional.

Everyone already knew before the World Cup how good he was, but I have no idea what that means for the financial part of it, added the Liverpool boss.

Chris Bascombe wrote in telegraph.

“It would break Liverpool’s transfer record, and consume the club’s resources enormously. Manchester City could blow Liverpool off the field in terms of the wages they could offer,” Bascombe asserts.

Pearce agrees: “There is no doubt that Liverpool are counting on participating in the Champions League next season.”

Sources deny Fernandez talks

During and after the World Cup, Liverpool have also been strongly linked with new world champions Enzo Fernandes. The Argentine was named the best young player at the World Cup in Qatar, but Pearce points to sources at Anfield who denied reports that the Anfield club had advanced in talks to sign the World Cup star.

Fiorentina’s Sofiane Ambrabat was another player to impress during the World Cup, and he surprisingly gets a lot of the credit for Morocco, reaching the semi-finals.

“It would be a cheaper option, especially if Liverpool wanted to set aside money to join Bellingham in the summer,” Pearce asserts.

The Serie A club will value the Moroccan at £35m.

Brighton’s Moises Caicedo and RB Leipzig’s Konrad Leimer have been on Liverpool’s radar, but the latter looks set to end up at Bayern Munich in the summer.

Get Player Sales in January

Pearce doesn’t think Liverpool will make much money from player sales in January. He believes that numerous injuries and a busy schedule speak against selling players. Most of the players on the team need to cover injuries.

However, sports journalist Nat Phillips lists him, who is worth an estimated £10 million, as a player who could be allowed to leave the club.

The Bolton man was almost forced to stay at the club this summer, after Joel Matip picked up a thigh injury just before the league started. At the time, it looked like Phillips was headed to Benfica on a season-long loan. Southampton and Burnley have also shown interest in him.

Phillips has made just four appearances this season but whether he is allowed to leave the club in January will depend on fellow defenders Virgil van Dijk, Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez and Matip who are injury free.
