Liverpool Has Golden Chance to Perfect £35m Transfer for Following Gakpo Deal
Posted On March 24, 2023
After having signed Cody Gakpo for £37m initially, it is to be seen if it is going to strengthen Liverpool’s team further in the upcoming transfer window.
After the arrival of the Dutchman, Jurgen Klopp confess that the deal can have an effect on the future business of the Reds in January and that he does not want to ‘splash the cash’ in the transfer window of this month.
Even though sources from Anfield have emphasized that a move mid-season for a midfielder is still unlikely after signing a forward, the club will keep considering options like they do in the transfer window. For instance, their last year’s summer business was taken to be complete before injuries made them bring in Arthur Melo on loan, while rival interest and attractive fees saw them make an opportunist move to bring in both Luis Diaz and Gakpo mid-season, irrespective of the initial planning for making such moves in the closing season.
January appears like an unusual time for Liverpool to try and close a deal for Jude Bellingham, the first-choice midfield target, with the England international player almost likely to cost the club a record fee and Borussia Dortmund presently showing no will to sanction an exit in the midseason.
While the stance of the club has been to sign the appropriate player instead of any player right now, it means they will have to wait and leave a vacuum in the team if the right target of high quality became available for a food fee like was the case with Gakpo, club bonuses can be more inclined to swoop in, in the future. So, there is always a possibility that injuries will force their hand quite reluctantly in the decision-making process.
