'I want to move to Liverpool': Liverpool set to get €34m alternative if they don't get Jude Bellingham

Liverpool Transfer News: French football journalist suggested Liverpool might move their focus toward Monaco’s Youssouf Fofana as a Jude Bellingham option

Liverpool Transfer News: According to Caught Offside’s Jonathan Johnson, Liverpool is considering a deal for Youssouf Fofana. According to reports, the Monaco midfielder is a good replacement for Jude Bellingham. The Merseysiders can’t seem to keep the Borussia Dortmund star in their sights.

According to reports, Jude Bellingham favoured Liverpool for over a year. The team was reportedly among his top signing options. Real Madrid has taken over the mantle of the England international in recent months. The Spaniards are now the undisputed frontrunners to sign him.

Manchester City and Chelsea, with their considerable wealth, are also mentioned. But, Liverpool and Real Madrid feel like Bellingham’s obvious destiny. The transfer price Borussia Dortmund is seeking for Ousmane Dembele is far more than the €144 million paid by Barcelona.

Liverpool remains optimistic about Bellingham, but their fans might have to consider the reality of the transfer not materialising. The team will need a backup strategy and new goals to make up for the setback. Renato Sanches of PSG has landed on their radar, as have Matheus Nunes and Ruben Neves of Wolves.

Will the Reds get him?

Liverpool could pursue Youssouf Fofana, according to French football journalist Jonathan Johnson. The 24-year-old Ligue 1 midfielder has excelled since joining Monaco in 2020. He also competed in the World Cup with France.

Klopp may find the 24-year-old Ligue 1 midfielder to be an excellent addition. Their midfield has lacked calmness in recent seasons, and he would be a breath of new air there. Moreover, several teams will want to take advantage of Fofana’s status as a rising star in French football.

Liverpool is considering other possibilities outside Fofana. Still on the table for the Reds is Serbian midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. The latter is more suited to playing as defenders in a three-man midfield, although they may contribute when necessary.

Fofana would cost much less than Bellingham. Liverpool’s primary difficulty in acquiring the Dortmund star is monetary. Even though they will keep attempting to sign him until he makes a choice, the Bundesliga club is sticking to their very high asking price.
