During the summer transfer season, Liverpool was interested in signing Aurelien Tchouameni, but the Frenchman ultimately switched from Monaco to Real Madrid.
After failing to entice the Les Bleus midfielder, the Reds reportedly aim to sign Jude Bellingham before Real Madrid.
The Merseysiders are seeking retribution after failing to sign Tchouameni, who is currently doing well at the Bernabeu, according to a Spanish outlet, Nacional.
The Liverpool club’s manager, Jurgen Klopp, has instructed them to spend lavishly in order to sign Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund, who is also wanted by Los Blancos.
According to the Catalan newspaper, Liverpool is planning a first bid for the England international worth £70 million (80 million euros).
The Bundesliga team in Germany is said to want at least 100 million euros (£87 million) from the sale of their prized possession.
It is fair to say that Steven Gerrard, a premier box-to-box midfielder, has not yet been successfully replaced by the Reds.
The former England international was the hub of activity in the middle of the field. He was skilled at tackling, making driving runs, scoring goals, and dishing out assists.
Jude Bellingham is demonstrating that he is a complete midfielder like Stevie G, who was excellent in every midfield position.
Will Liverpool be able to sign him before Real Madrid? Time will only tell.
