Liverpool have reportedly abandoned the pursuit of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham. The England international had been linked with a move to Anfield for several transfer windows, but now the Reds will turn their focus towards other targets.Jurgen Klopp has acknowledged the need to rebuild his midfield with Arthur Melo, Naby Keita and Alex Oxalde-Chamberlain all departing this summer. However, he also notes that spending PS100m on Bellingham won't be enough to solve their issues.
'Could they have spent less on Nu?'
Liverpool have experienced midfield issues this season and Jurgen Klopp reportedly wants to add at least two top midfielders in the summer. Some potential options include Borussia Dortmund's Jude Bellingham, Chelsea's Mason Mount and Wolves' Matheus Nunes.At the start of this year, Bellingham was considered one of the most exciting players to watch. Unfortunately, his price tag is high and would have severely restricted Liverpool's budget. Furthermore, they could potentially get into a bidding war for him and cannot afford to waste time or miss out on other targets while chasing after him.Read More: يلا شوت حصريThere can be no doubt that a successful signing could have dramatically improved Liverpool's fortunes. Unfortunately, spending PS130m on one player would not be enough to achieve success; therefore, an entire rebuild is necessary.
'Could they have shopped around?'
When Liverpool's sporting director Julian Ward was appointed in the summer of 2017, his initial goal was to rejuvenate their ageing front line. Mane, Salah and Roberto Firmino had all been key components in recent success but were out of contract at the end of this season.They had to go out and buy replacements. It was a difficult job, but the squad proved strong enough for it to be done and each season has seen them improve.Read More: يلا شوت جوالUnfortunately, they've failed to do it well. Not only have they made many errors with the players they've bought, but they haven't been very adept at selecting those who will help them progress.Ben Woodburn, Rhian Brewster and Harry Wilson - all brought through the academy - may seem like more successful players had they been selected more frequently. Being part of a talismanic team that could have easily outclassed opponents instead of having to settle for an uneventful XI that couldn't quite measure up is understandable.
'Could they have got a better deal?'
The Reds have already recouped a significant portion of their PS85m investment in Nu, but if they had chosen to add players on top of him instead of saving money, they could have still acquired an outstanding player.Read More: يلا شوت مباشرAt present, Liverpool have struggled at the start of this season and Nunez has not provided a significant offensive boost - disappointing both fans and Klopp. But that does not make him a failure and perhaps once things pick up again for Liverpool, his goalscoring form may improve.Liverpool moved swiftly in the summer transfer window to sign Nunez, with assistant sporting director Julian Ward flying out to Portugal before other clubs could offer him a contract. This move further underlined Liverpool's strength in the Portuguese market, following Luis Diaz's signing last January.
'Could they have diversified?'
The Reds are eager to add a few reinforcements this summer, yet their budget is limited. With James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all expected to depart on free transfers this summer, the club's recruitment staff faces an uphill task ahead.Liverpool are likely to need at least two midfielders if they plan on reaching the top four this season. Additionally, an attacker would be needed if Mane or Origi are sold, as well as a replacement for Carvalho (though Thiago may not be the best option) and Curtis Jones.Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham has been heavily sought-after by Manchester City and Real Madrid, according to reports. At 19 years old, the England international has enjoyed an incredible season so far - scoring 10 goals and providing seven assists for his national side. With such a promising future ahead of him, Liverpool are believed to be keen on signing him.
