Liverpool transfer target value ‘falls sharply’ as Jürgen Klopp can ‘sink blow on Bayern Munich ’ to nab wonderkid

Media Digest: Liverpool could secure a transfer, while Jurgen Klopp is also well placed to steal an extremely exciting young talent.

Jurgen Klopp said he needs to ‘move hard’ to Liverpool owner FSG on transfers

Everyone loves doing business on the transfer market. Liverpool under FSG are certainly no exception and will be looking to push their budget as far as possible this summer as they look to strengthen more parts of the squad.

The priority should still be the midfield, which has more or less collapsed on itself this season. Trent Alexander-Arnold’s reinvention has buoyed him up for a run-up, but even if Jürgen Klopp continues with that experiment, he will want reinforcements around his reversed right-back. But alongside rookies for the center of the park, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the need for defensive investments.

The current season has not yet fallen from the abyss, but there are warning signs and there is certainly a will to avoid a repeat of the situation in midfield.

Pulling out of Jude Bellingham’s expensive run is one way Liverpool are trying to meet all of his various transfer demands. But a surrender to a defensive target would certainly make sense.

And that’s exactly what it could be, according to a Dutch legend and former Ajax manager. Speaking on Dutch television, via, Winston Bogarde and Marco van Basten talked about Jurrien Timber who was linked to Liverpool by 90MIN last month.

“…In recent seasons…Ajax showed themselves in the Champions League, which greatly increased the value of the players,” Bogarde said. “If you compare that to this season, the value has gone down dramatically.”

Van Basten then entered:

“You can see that, because Timber is just a good player. Now he’s on a team with quite a few suckers around him. He’s going to be bad too!”

Liverpool have obviously contributed directly this season to thwart Ajax’s progress in the Champions League. Coupled with the more general malaise at the club, this could drive Timber’s price down a bit and the 21-year-old could be a very smart buy.

Klopp can steal prodigy

Liverpool can feel short on cash at times compared to some of their rivals, but a look across the continent paints a rosier picture. The thing is, FSG is still able to flex its muscle to attract all but the most prodigious and established talent.

Certainly, Italian outlet Calciomercato is giving Liverpool a realistic chance to praise “Italian football’s most promising young defender”. Atalanta’s Giorigo Scalvini is admired at Anfield and a transfer would be plausible. With a contract until 2027, his current club actually have a strong hand. But all the usual Italian suitors are facing problems: Juventus and Inter have ‘budget problems’ while Milan, Napoli and Roma would all need defensive exits before they can buy. Liverpool are not believed to have the same problems as Bayern Munich and ‘other top European clubs’, leaving them well placed to ‘sink the punch’ and steal an Italian gem.

Scalvini would be a huge blow for Klopp considering the 19-year-old wonderkid is capable of playing in defense or moving into midfield. In doing so, he could solve two of Liverpool’s trouble spots while potentially delivering elite service for the next decade or more.
