If Liverpool is to compete on all fronts, they must address their aging midfield as soon as possible. They squandered their summer transfer window by luring an injury-prone Arthur on deadline day.
The Reds have heavily linked with England international Jude Bellingham, but he ended up staying with Borussia Dortmund.
Former Anfield star, Danny Murphy, has backed Liverpool to secure the signing of the Three Lions player, who would largely strengthen things in the center of the park.
The 45-year-old told talkSPORT (via HITC):
“That would be a hell of a signing. it would change the dynamic of the midfield, in terms of that he’s an attacking, goalscoring midfielder. He’s a super player. Some of the attributes he’s got for such a young man”
On Tuesday night, the £50,000-a-week star (Bild) put in a fantastic performance against Copenhagen in the Champions League and scored the third goal of the game.
Murphy further added:
“I liked his celebration when he scored last night actually. As if to say; ‘Here I am, look at me.”
Danny is not the first person to recommend Bellingham to Liverpool. In July, former Arsenal player, Paul Merson stated that the teenage sensation would be perfect for the Merseysiders.
On the other hand, last month, journalist, Dominic King, wrote that the former Birmingham City midfielder would be an ideal signing for the Anfield club.
Liverpool’s midfield is currently in disarray, and to make matters worse, their backline has also been a disaster. Napoli humiliated us last night at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
If things do not improve quickly, Klopp’s men may not even qualify for the Champions League the following season, making luring a top-quality star like Jude Bellingham difficult.
