"I'd certainly expect": James Pearce names the type of player he expects the club to sign

Journalist James Pearce has recently been talking about the future of Liverpool Football Club.

Pearce believes that the Reds will attempt to sign a midfielder come the summer transfer window.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has not signed a midfield player since September 2020 (Thiago Alcantara).

As quoted by Anfield Watch's Twitter account, Pearce told The Athletic the following: "I'd certainly expect that department of the squad to be strengthened next summer."

Anfield Watch Verdict

We do hope to see Liverpool sign a midfielder in the near future. The reality is, the Reds do possess an ageing midfield.

The likes of Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Thiago are all above the age of 30.

With that being the case, Liverpool do need to have an eye to the future. The Reds have been linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.

The Englishman is a talented youngster. Bellingham has scored seven goals and registered 13 assists in 70 appearances for Borussia Dortmund's first-team.

The 18-year-old has also been averaging a WhoScored player rating of 7.26 in the Bundesliga this season. Therefore, we would love to see Liverpool make a move for Bellingham in the near future.

The England international won't come cheap. Bellingham's contract expires in June 2025. The midfielder possesses a current market value of €75 million.
