Considering the dismal season that has defied all expectations and spoke loudly about the need for squad renovation, as well as significant fan discontent with the transfer policy, Liverpool appears to have finally defined its priorities.
The January transfer window may have ended with only one signing, but with the Reds making moves virtually every day, it appears like a blockbuster summer is just around the corner.
The continual mention of Liverpool in the news alongside a fresh name each day demonstrates the breadth of possibilities being considered.
Jude Bellingham remains the primary target, with some interest developing for others in the background. The club appears to be in discussion with a dynamic youngster’s entourage about a possible move shortly.
Several teams, including Liverpool, are interested in Spanish youngster
According to renowned transfer reporter Fabrizio Romano, Barcelona starlet Ansu Fati is being linked to many Premier League teams, including Manchester United and Liverpool, who are in communication with the player’s agent about a possible summer move.
The prodigy was expected to take on the mantle of Barcelona’s new post-Messi era, but with an injury problem impeding his growth, his future at the Catalan club now appears bleak.
Fati has battled to earn more minutes from manager Xavi this season, but club president Joan Laporta has voiced full trust in the player, emphasizing his ambitions to see Barcelona’s future with him.
His agent, Jorge Mendes, is in frequent contact with both Liverpool and Manchester United to assess the player’s possibilities if things do not work out in Spain. This season, the 20-year-old has started only 9 of 31 games, progressively eroding his manager’s faith in him.
Fati has a rumored 1 billion euro release clause following his contract renewal two seasons ago, demonstrating the club’s trust in him, but if a move is finally considered, there is no reason why cheaper bids would not be considered.

Fati, according to Romano, still has time to turn things around, with the rest of the season being an opportunity to prove why he deserves to continue at Barcelona. The situation of the club’s stance on him will be reassessed after the end of the season. Liverpool has remained interested.
