Liverpool may now be closing in on another key transfer breakthrough besides Jude Bellingham - TBR View

Liverpool appear to be heading in the right direction regarding a couple of significant potential transfers.

On Wednesday, SportBILD’s head of football Christian Falk claimed that the Reds were closing in on Jude Bellingham.

He took to Twitter with a post saying Liverpool were now favourites for the Borussia Dortmund ace.

Falk also spoke to The Anfield Wrap‘s podcast, detailing Liverpool’s plans to sign Bellingham.

“Bellingham is watching and sees a big chance to be a leader at Liverpool,” he said.

“Real Madrid is very, very interested but they have players there who aren’t so young also, but you have a few younger players like [Eduardo] Camavinga.

“He sees a big opportunity and advantage to play for Liverpool and be important. This is what Jurgen Klopp is saying to him.”

Falk then went on to say that “if Bellingham can decide it, it’s Liverpool.”

While this is exciting news for next summer, the Reds may also be closing in on a much-needed January signing.

According to Footmercato, Sofyan Amrabat’s representatives have already held talks with Jurgen Klopp over a potential Liverpool switch.

Apparently, more talks have been scheduled for when the World Cup in Qatar concludes as the Reds look to strengthen their midfield.

‘Exceptional technique’

Amrabat has been in impressive form for Morocco, helping them to the quarter-finals of the tournament.

The Fiorentina ace is a high-calibre player who has impressed at the highest level and, at 26, is in his peak years.

On Twitter, fans have compared Amrabat – whose contract runs to 2024 – to the likes of Bernardo Silva, Javier Mascherano and Mikel Jon Obi.

He would bring a tenacity and quality to the game which the Liverpool fans would surely appreciate.

In addition, Amrabat – who has been praised for his ‘exceptional technique on the ball’ – shouldn’t break the bank.

Reports linking him to Tottenham earlier this year suggested a fee of around £12.5million.

With Liverpool desperately needing midfield reinforcements, Amrabat arriving in January would be a much-needed boost.
