Liverpool willing to pay “significant’ fee” to complete signing as report outlines Reds’ £103M transfer strategy

Liverpool are willing to pay a significant fee for Jude Bellingham, according to reports. The Reds have a transfer plan in place.

This comes from the Liverpool Echo.

They claim that Liverpool would be willing to pay a significant fee for Jude Bellingham next summer when he’s expected to be available.

Borussia Dortmund have slapped a £103m price tag on their superstar midfielder but, seemingly, it won’t deter the Reds.

Bellingham is also being courted by a whole host of clubs around Europe including Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United.

Liverpool have also been linked midfielders such as Nicolo Barella and, more recently, Marco Asensio.

Reports in Spain have claimed Liverpool are interested in the Spaniard, who could be available at a cut-price of £25m, with Tottenham also in the running.

But Bellingham remains the top priority for the Reds, with Liverpool looking to bolster their midfield next season.

Whilst fans may be disappointed that a move can’t be made this summer, the current crop of young talent such as Harvey Elliot, Curtis Jones and new signing Fabio Carvalho should provide enough excitement for the Anfield faithful.

Liverpool have already been busy in the window so far securing the services of Darwin Nunez, Calvin Ramsay and Carvalho.

The transfers so far are part of a process described the Echo as a ‘retain and refresh strategy’ with young talent coming in.

Having seen Takumi Minamino, Divock Origi and Sadio Mane leave, the Reds are revamping their famed attack which started with the Luis Diaz signing back in January.

Nunez for a club record fee of £85m, Carvalho, Ramsey and a new deal for Mohamad Salah and Joe Gomez is certainly a successful one.

Liverpool enter pre-season in a great place as a club with no squad issues or un-resolved conflicts.

Their tour begins with a match against Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United in Thailand on July 12th before heading to Singapore, Germany, Austria and then back to Anfield.
