Liverpool are reportedly in ‘advanced talks’ for Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham with Jurgen Klopp looking to make the England international his next signing. The Reds are expected to add more to their squad over the upcoming transfer windows and here Express Sport looks at three players who could follow the teenager through the doors to Anfield.
The Morocco midfielder has been one of the stars of the World Cup in Qatar as the north African nation progressed to the quarter-finals for the first time. The 26-year-old currently represents Serie A side Fiorentina but his contract expires in 2024 and the club may need to consider selling him in the upcoming transfer windows in order to maximise his value.
As a result, he has been heavily linked with a move away with such reports intensifying in light of his magnificent World Cup displays. Liverpool have been joined by Premier League rivals Tottenham in pursuing a move for his signature as they both seek to improve in the centre of the park.
Amrabat excels in the holding midfield role meaning he could be the perfect foil for Bellingham should he make the move to Anfield. He would be tasked with completing all of the dirty work allowing the teenager to thrive.

Mount’s status at Chelsea is currently uncertain with the 23-year-old yet to sign a new deal at Stamford Bridge despite his current contract expiring in 2023. Liverpool are joined by Juventus in monitoring the situation and could take advantage by signing him for a cut-price fee.
The midfielder has been one of the Blues’ key players over the past few seasons and would be a major coup for Klopp should he manage to persuade Chelsea to sell up. He has already had the opportunity to build up a good relationship with Bellingham for England over the World Cup break with the duo starting together in midfield vs Iran and the USA.
