Bellingham “guarantee,” 2 return to training & loan imminent – Latest LFC News

Jurgen Klopp was handed a timely injury boost with the return of two senior players to training amid the backdrop of continued transfer chatter and a surprise late loan move change.


Bellingham and midfielder chatter

Liverpool want and need a midfielder, whether one arrives before Thursday’s 11pm deadline remains to be seen.

The chatter relating to the Reds’ situation is constant and with so many voices it can be difficult to always decipher what is going on, we’ll try and summarise that for you here:

  • Quizzed on Jude Bellingham’s future, Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl told Sky Germany: “There is no request and to be honest – I know that from the player and his family – the boy is not interested at all this summer to go somewhere. He will stay with us, I can guarantee that today. Of course he wants to take the next step at some point. My wish would be to keep the boys for a year or two longer.”
  • Sky Sports’ Melissa Reddy listed some options that could be of interest to Liverpool in “Manu Kone, Moises Caicedo, and to a lesser extent, Konrad Laimer” but in no way suggested the club are actively chasing them.
  • David Ornstein repeated the line we’ve long heard, on the Athletic’s Football Podcast, that “Liverpool will probably not bring somebody in unless there’s an exceptional opportunity which is very good value for money.”

There you have it, no significant news on the possible transfer front on Monday but, as ever, Liverpool’s name will always drive clicks so there are to be plenty of tenuous links in the days to come no doubt.
