Here is a roundup of the top Liverpool news and gossip from icfootballnews that we think you may have missed –
Liverpool could potentially look to sign Leicester City star Youri Tielemans – according to journalist Paul Brown.
Since moving to Leicester in 2019 in a deal worth £40.5million, Tielemans has made 50 goal contributions in 166 games, helping the Foxes win the 2021 FA Cup and nearly qualify for the Champions League twice.
However – he was one of the most talked about players in the summer transfer window – with the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal reportedly interested in trying to get a transfer deal done – but he somehow stayed put
Tielemans has scored three goals in the top flight, two of which were spectacular strikes against Wolves and Everton, and it has been easy to see why he is such an in-demand player.
Now – if you believe the words of Brown – he could be a player that Jurgen Klopp tries to sign in order to revamp his ageing midfield area.
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Brown: “I think he would suit them down to the ground, he’d fit in and can play a number of different roles for them in an area where they’re weak.
“But I’m not sure he’d be their top choice in there.
“I think at the moment, they’re trying to look for players at a slightly higher level, but it wouldn’t surprise me if they were to make a move as well.”
Right now – Tielemans will be loyal to the club – especially as his words could make it even worse for Brendan Rodgers
If the right offer arrives in January and we fully expect him to leave the club then or at the end of the season – and Liverpool could be a great move for the man
Bellingham talks –
Liverpool are already in contact with Jude Bellingham’s representatives, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Bellingham was the subject of interest from Chelsea in the summer transfer window, but Dortmund made it clear they wouldn’t entertain any sale for one of their most impressive performers
However – it is widely believed that all the big clubs will be eyeing up a possible deal for Bellingham during the January window – rather than getting into a big time summer battle next summer
Both Chelsea and Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move to try and secure a possible deal for the talented midfielder – with many reports suggesting that they are prepared to pay that £131 million asking price
Now – if you believe the words of Romano – Liverpool are already in talks with the gifted midfielder – who is currently at the World Cup with the England squad –
The Italian stated: “Liverpool will be in the race, 100 per cent. They’re already in contact with people close to Jude Bellingham, so Liverpool will be there.”
Bellingham is one of the most exciting talents in world football and a man that is tipped to shine at the World Cup – which could bump up his asking price
A move to Liverpool would give him the chance to work with one of the best coaches in world football and at one of the biggest clubs
Nothing will probably get done until England are knocked out of the tournament – but he is one player that many people would love to see in the Premier League
It has been claimed that Liverpool are ready to make a move for Mason Mount should he not sign a new contract at Chelsea.
Mount has become one of the most important players at Stamford Bridge over the past few seasons and is a man that Graham Potter can totally rely on
But Mount’s current stint with the Blues ends in 2024 and there has been some speculation in the media that the club are having complications on agreeing a new contract with the midfielder.
But now – according to The Athletic, a breakthrough has been reached in recent weeks following latest talks between Mount’s representatives and Chelsea chairman Todd Boelhy and co-owner Behdad Eghbali.
