Liverpool’s Jude Bellingham alternatives ranked as Jurgen Klopp looks to rebuild midfield

Liverpool’s Jude Bellingham alternatives ranked as Jurgen Klopp looks to rebuild midfield

Liverpool have reportedly stepped away from the race to sign Jude Bellingham

Liverpool will have to look elsewhere after reportedly pulling out of the race to sign Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham.

It has been well-documented that Liverpool were very keen on Bellingham but they seem to have been priced out of a move as a result of their dismal 22/23 season.

Reports have claimed that Liverpool feel it will be better to spend their budget on multiple targets rather than on Bellingham alone.

On the back of the latest development, we have decided to rank the 10 alternatives that Liverpool could target for their much-needed midfield revamp.

10. Matheus Nunes, Wolves

The Portuguese has been linked with a move to Liverpool, but it has been reported that although they are interested, Nunes is not a priority.

9. Ryan Gravenberch, Bayern Munich

Gravenberch has failed to nail down a place in Bayern's starting eleven. At just 20 years old, Jurgen Klopp could work wonders with a player who has all the qualities to become a top-class midfielder.

8. Conor Gallagher, Chelsea

After impressing on loan at Crystal Palace, Gallagher has failed to establish himself at Chelsea. His energy and pace could be an asset for Liverpool.

7. Youri Tielemans, Leicester City

The Belgian looks set to leave Leicester as his contract ends this summer. On a free transfer, it could be a good bit of business for Liverpool.

6. Alexis MacAllister, Brighton

Argentina World Cup winner MacAllister is attracting interest from a host of clubs after impressing during the tournament in Qatar. Liverpool will likely face tough competition in the race for the 24-year-old.

5. Declan Rice, West Ham

Rice might demand a bigger fee but he has all the attributes to become a real success at Liverpool. Energy, leadership and an eye for a killer pass from a deep position.

4. Pablo Gavi, Barcelona

Golden Boy winner Gavi’s contract situation at Barcelona is yet to be resolved. The 18-year-old will for sure improve Liverpool’s midfield.

3. Moises Caicedo, Brighton

Kicking off the top three is the in-demand Brighton star.

Liverpool could take advantage of Arsenal’s failed attempts to sign Caicedo in January and snap up the 21-year-old. Caicedo would be the perfect replacement for Fabinho.

2. Mason Mount, Chelsea

Mount has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in recent weeks. Having shown what he is capable of over the last few years, Liverpool would love the chance to add Mount to their squad. A brilliant player that can flourish under Klopp’s management.

1. Nicolo Barella, Inter Milan

The Inter man comes out on top as he would slot perfectly into Klopp’s system. Barella is a typical box-to-box midfielder that can play as an 8 or a 10. Reports have claimed he is Liverpool’s top target after missing out on Bellingham.
