Danny Murphy has named three midfielders that Liverpool should be looking to sign in the future.
"I wouldn’t say it’s a priority but there are a couple of names that really stand out… (Jude) Bellingham is a special talent, there’s no doubt about that," he told BeMyBet.
"He would be somebody who very few people would be unhappy with if he turned up at Anfield because he can play in a variety of positions in that midfield.
"He’s got super athleticism that Klopp likes for his midfield players and he’s got the ability to score lots of goals in a good team. He would be somebody I would really be looking at, yes.
"If you’re talking about somebody long term to try and fill the void which will be left by Jordan Henderson, then you’d be looking at someone more like Declan Rice, or even Kalvin Phillips."
"I'm sure Liverpool will be in the running for Jude Bellingham next summer. Let's wait and see what Borussia Dortmund plans for next summer. But Liverpool will be in the running for him." #lfc [@wettfreunde] pic.twitter.com/k6YHDr6kjc
Anfield Watch Verdict
Neither of these players would suit our system in my opinion. They're both defensive players and we don't need a Fabinho replacement just yet.
What we need is a right-sided midfielder and Bellingham ticks every box.
He is the perfect Klopp midfielder and we should be doing everything in our power to sign the 18-year-old.
