How Liverpool’s plan to reinforce midfield in the summer can take them to the top

We all know by now that Liverpool’s most dire need at this minute is the midfield spot. Their midfield chart looks a little dodgy these days, and even though they have quality players, they need a couple more.

Liverpool currently deploy a midfield of Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho and Jordan Henderson when every player is fit to play. However, it’s very clear to me that Jordan Henderson is past his prime, and if Jurgen Klopp is willing to let him become a helpful bench option, then there is hope for this team after all.

Liverpool are, according to Fabrizio Romano, trying to sign Jude Bellingham. According to the journalist, Klopp is talking to the higher-ups daily, ensuring the club is as close to signing him as possible. But that’s not all.

Fabrizio Romano also says that Liverpool are interested in signing Matheus Nunes and Bellingham. It’s not an either-or option. It’s both.

Signing Bellingham and Matheus Nunes should help Liverpool massively

Of course, neither is a done deal. There is still a lot of work to be done before Liverpool complete the signings of both Bellingham and Nunes, especially the former, who is also wanted by clubs like Real Madrid and Manchester City. However, the fact that Liverpool are pushing hard for the signing of Bellingham says a lot. They’re not putting all of their eggs in one basket, either.

They are also trying to sign Nunes, who would greatly help the team. They need all the depth they can get, and Nunes and Bellingham would be great acquisitions who would make sure that the team’s midfield doesn’t collapse the way it has this season if there is an injury or two in the squad. Bellingham would be a nailed-on starter and help the team greatly, but Nunes would be really good off the bench. It’s something that the club hasn’t had as of late. Signing Nunes would change that to their favour.

It’s a sort of rebuild that every Liverpool fan has been looking for, because if they sign these two players – and that is a big if – they’ll see themselves rise back to the pinnacle of English and European football.
