After an incident involving the midfield during the summer, Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, is said to have renewed interest in Matheus Nunes. The Reds lack steel in the center of the park as a result of deciding against a new headline acquisition and placing more faith on Harvey Elliott, which has affected their position in the Premier League standings.

With Matheus Nunes' U-turn, Klopp may have acknowledged Harvey Elliott's mistake

Nunes has been associated with Liverpool for months as a dynamic all-around midfielder who perfectly matches Klopp's favored style. So when Wolves moved in first to seal a club-record £38 million deal, they were left furious. The Reds' interest didn't go away overnight, either, and according to The Telegraph, they are considering a £44 million transfer that would send him to Anfield in the summer. Klopp may have made a mistake by giving Elliott greater responsibilities instead after delaying the first deal from Sporting Lisbon for several months.


Nunes has been associated with Liverpool for months as a dynamic all-around midfielder

The young player received a five-year contract during the summer, and this season, he has played more Premier League minutes. Elliott has participated in 17 games for Liverpool so far this season, starting 12 of them. The 19-year-old is expected to have a bright future even if he has only made two goal contributions and left a lot to be desired in terms of defensive cover during that time. However, Nunes may have given Klopp a more capable all-around alternative.

After coming near to an unprecedented four-medal haul last season, Liverpool has fallen down the Premier League standings due to an unbalanced midfield. With 17 games played, the Reds are presently in sixth place and have won fewer than half of them.

James Pearce claims that LFC is interested in a midfielder as a Jude Bellingham update is given

For Liverpool, the bad news keeps getting worse as Virgil van Dijk becomes the latest player to succumb to a potentially serious injury. However, what is more, concerning in the interim is the Reds' apparent readiness to take the chance of going the rest of the season without adding a midfielder.


Jurgen Klopp's team is "assessing their possibilities" for the summer transfer window

According to James Pearce of The Athletic, Jurgen Klopp's team is "assessing their possibilities" for the summer transfer window, but there is "no indication of midfield reinforcements on the coming" right now. Jude Bellingham, like always, is the team's major focus.

Liverpool CANNOT afford to accept the risk of not acquiring a midfielder

Similar to how every supporter, former player, and analyst was easily able to see our major weakness in the 2020–21 season, it is plainly evident to everyone that our midfield department is the root of most of our present conflict. One can easily understand Jurgen Klopp's perspective when he talks about our restricted transfer budget given that the club is basically dependent on the revenue it generates through player sales and other sources. There doesn't seem to be much space for negotiation after the Cody Gakpo purchase because Bellingham would likely cost a prospective buyer around over £130 million.

With Reds players advising the youngster on a move to Anfield, Klopp informs the player that a world-class signing is his if Liverpool wants him

With certain Reds stars already working to convince the player to make Anfield his next destination, Liverpool appears to be in the driver's seat to acquire their top transfer target of 2023. The Reds have had a challenging season thus far, and the 3-1 loss against Brentford exposed a number of flaws. Liverpool is currently down in sixth position and seven points outside of the Champions League spots as a result of that setback. Additionally, it was their fifth loss in their last 17 Premier League contests. Indeed, Jamie Carragher, a commentator and former Reds defender, says the Merseysiders "no longer seem like a Jurgen Klopp club." And it is obvious that a handful of fresh recruits are necessary amid growing concerns that this is the end of Liverpool's cycle.


Jude Bellingham, a youngster who plays for Borussia Dortmund, is the player at the top of their want list

Liverpool wants to enhance their midfield throughout the upcoming two transfer windows. Both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita are destined to become free agents this summer when their contracts expire. There is also mounting speculation that James Milner, who is 37 today, is likely entering his last season at Anfield. As a result, it is not surprising that Liverpool is looking to recruit at least two new midfielders this year. Jude Bellingham, a youngster who plays for Borussia Dortmund, is the player at the top of their want list.

At the World Cup, the 19-year-old representing England shined with some commanding performances. While he demonstrated his immense potential, Liverpool is aware that any move to get Bellingham will not be inexpensive. The most recent sources state that any deal for the midfielder will cost an initial £88.5 million (€100 million), with bonuses raising the total to £105.6 million (€120 million). That will undoubtedly strain Liverpool's financial capabilities. And any deal will break Anfield's current transfer record.
