Liverpool to sign three more players after hijacking Cody Gakpo deal

Liverpool could sign three more players after hijacking £44m Cody Gakpo deal from Man United.

Following its triumph against Manchester United in the pursuit of Cody Gakpo, Liverpool may yet make other moves in the winter market.

After months of rumors suggesting the Dutchman would be moving to Old Trafford instead, the Reds and the Dutchman have come to an agreement on a deal that might reach £44 million to capture the Dutchman’s services.

Gakpo might not be Jurgen Klopp’s final signing for the January transfer window as the team still needs reinforcements to turn around their campaign.

Jude Bellingham 

One of the longest-running storylines in the transfer market has been Liverpool’s pursuit of Bellingham, and the teenager now seems more likely than ever to join the club at Anfield.

The possibility of signing the 19-year-old shouldn’t be affected by Gakpo’s arrival, but given that a deal would likely cost more than £100 million, it might have to wait until next summer.

Dortmund is hesitant to sell their star player in the middle of the season, but they will likely be more flexible at the conclusion of the year when it will be simpler to find a successor.

Enzo Fernandez

The Argentine’s performances at the World Cup have captured the attention of a host of clubs, with Liverpool believed to be among that number. 

The 21-year-old offers creativity from the holding midfield role and could go on to become the club’s first choice in the position for the next decade. 

However, Klopp may face the same hurdles to attract Fernandez to Anfield in January that he does with Bellingham. 

Benfica have confirmed they have no intention to sell their top stars over the winter, meaning the Reds would need to fork out £106m for his release clause. 

There is also no certainty that the midfielder would agree to the move at this time, insisting his full focus currently remains with the Portuguese side which means this is another that may have to wait til summer. 

Eljif Elmas 

Reports have linked the Napoli star with a move to Liverpool in recent days, with Ahmet Ercanlar stating Klopp had held a private call with the player encouraging him to come to Anfield. 

He may be the most achievable option for the club after being used sparingly by the Italian side this season, seeing just over 500 minutes of match action in 14 appearances in the Serie A. 

The North Macedonian may be the best option for the Reds at the current moment in time before chasing Bellingham and Fernandez over the summer. 

It remains to be seen whether or not Klopp decides to take any concrete action other than his reported phone call.
