Exclusive: Fabrizio Romano names Liverpool’s top midfield target amid fresh transfer speculation
Liverpool FC are still keen on Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham their top transfer target in midfield, despite recent links with Ajax starlet Mohammed Kudus as well.
Fabrizio Romano, a transfer news expert who writes exclusively for CaughtOffside in the Daily Briefing, asserts that Everton expressed interest in Kudus throughout the summer.
Bellingham is a promising young talent who has already gained the attention of all the top teams in Europe, but Kudus also appears to be someone to keep an eye on after making a significant impact for Ajax this season.
Liverpool would do well to add Kudus alongside Bellingham if they decide to sign more than one midfielder, which might not be such a bad idea.
Providing an update on the Reds’ midfielder search, Romano said: “Liverpool still have Jude Bellingham as their top target, and contacts have already started.
“However, nothing concrete will happen until Borussia Dortmund decide their price in 2023.
“The Reds have also been linked with Mohammed Kudus, but at the moment there’s nothing concrete on this one.
“Kudus was close to joining Everton in the summer, but then deal collapsed because Ajax wanted to keep their best players after so many other sales.
“Let’s see if Liverpool decide to make more than one signing in midfield, but for the moment I’m sure Bellingham remains their top priority.”
