Aurelien Tchouameni was a target for Liverpool during the summer transfer window, but the Frenchman ultimately decided to leave Monaco for Real Madrid.
According to media reports, the Reds aim to outbid Real Madrid for the services of Jude Bellingham after failing to recruit the Les Bleus midfielder.
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 big money in order to recruit Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund, who is also wanted by Real Madrid.
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.
