“I love Liverpool but..” – watch Jude Bellingham arrives to discuss potential transfer options’ to Liverpool as he’s tipped to become the reds Erling Haaland if he eventually signs a new deal as jurgen klopp makes final transfer decision

Jurgen Klopp says that Jude Bellingham, a star for Borussia Dortmund, can be “Liverpool’s Erling Haaland” if he joins the club next summer.

However, the coach also notes that his team is “light in midfield” this season.

If he joins Liverpool next summer, Jude Bellingham might become the club’s Erling Haaland, but the Reds might pay for not signing a midfielder this year.

Bellingham, 19, made his breakthrough with Borussia Dortmund and England and is now regarded as one of the top young stars in football.

He appears destined to spend a third season in the Bundesliga, which might make things difficult for Liverpool, who have been heavily connected with the former Birmingham City star and are now dealing with injury issues in the middle of the field.

After suffering an opening-day injury in a 2-2 draw with Fulham, Thiago Alcantara is anticipated to be sidelined for four to six weeks. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita were both absent from the game.

There won’t be any more transfers before the window ends, according to manager Jurgen Klopp, since “it only makes sense if it’s the right player.” Some feel Bellingham will be that player next year.

Manchester City endured a similar wait for Haaland, but it appears to have been worthwhile now that the Norwegian is in terrifying form after scoring twice on his Premier League debut against West Ham.

Despite the fact that Klopp has alternative options available to him, talkSPORT hosts Ray Parlour and Trevor Sinclair believe that waiting to take action could be costly.

“I do feel they’re a little bit light in midfield,” said Sinclair.

“They’re talking about Jude Bellingham next summer and they probably won’t do anything because they’re probably going for him next summer.”

Parlour added: “If they can get Bellingham next year that will be like Haaland going to City, the wow factor because he’s going to be a top player.

“I know Thiago’s a very important player but they’ve still got options in midfield, [Harvey] Elliott, he could get a starting place, [Naby] Keita coming back, Fabinho’s going to be very important.

“[James] Milner is another option, he can come in and do a job for anybody, but it is a blow, Thiago.”

Klopp has indicated Elliott will be relied upon after signing a new deal

“I’m happy with the strength and quality of my squad,” he said. “But we have injuries, that’s how it is.

“The question is how long the players are out and there are different solutions. One is transfer market, but only makes sense if the right player.

“All the other solutions are inside the squad, we definitely have too many injuries that is clear.

“Naby will be back on Monday. Kostas [Tsimikas] will train today for first time, might be back.

“If we had the right solution then we would have done it already. We are not stubborn.

“If we look at the right player and there would have been opportunity, then we would do it and would have done it.

“We have had a lot of conversations but it doesn’t look like [it will happen].”

The Liverpool confirms midfield transfer as Jürgen Klopp explains plan and Diogo Jota injury update

Liverpool have confirmed a January transfer move while Jürgen Klopp has been speaking about his summer plan and offered a Diogo Jota injury update.

Jürgen Klopp has told his team that the Reds would be making significant changes amid a transfer overhaul, but that won’t happen until the summer when several of his players’ contracts expire.

“At Borussia Dortmund, it was clear when I left (in 2015), I said something has to change,” Klopp said in the second part of his press conference. “It is a different situation (here). Either the manager’s position changes or a lot of other things change.

“So, as far as I am concerned, what I hear — unless someone tells me (different) — I will not go. So that means maybe there is a point where we have to change other stuff.

“We will see but that is for the future, like summer or whatever. Not now. I have space and time to think about it.

“We have to play better football now. We cannot play and say: ‘OK, these are the problems but next season we don’t have them anymore’. That is a really long time. I cannot promise we will fly tomorrow but what I want to promise is that we really fight and everyone can see it.”

But if they manage to finish in the top four this season, it will be much easier to make such changes. Without Champions League football for a season, it will be considerably more difficult to sign Jude Bellingham and other major targets.

Jürgen Klopp has offered an update on Diogo Jota’s fitness as he continues his recovery from the long-term injury that has already forced him to miss the World Cup.

“I don’t know exactly how long but he looks really good,” Klopp said in the second part of his press conference. “He’s out there on the pitch doing a lot of stuff already. Another few weeks?”

When asked if Jota would be available for the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal matchup against Real Madrid next month, Klopp said: “From my point of view, yes but I don’t know.”

Colombian winger Luis Díaz is also on the recovery trail. He posted an update from the AXA Training Centre on social media yesterday.

At the AMEX Stadium on Saturday night, two goals in the second half from Solly March and another from substitute Danny Welbeck condemned Liverpool to a 3-0 Premier League loss.

In response, Klopp expressed his deep concern by evaluating the reverse without comparison over the course of his 22 years as manager.

“It’s my job to make the right line-up and set up the right tactics,” said the Reds boss. “I had really nice moments doing that but, I’m not sure if it’s because it’s only a few minutes since the game, but I can’t remember a worse game.
