Liverpool will look to move fast in the transfer market this summer, if they miss out on Jude Bellingham.
The Premier League giants were rumoured to be in a strong position to tempt the England international to Anfield over a switch to Real Madrid.
However, financial muscle is increasingly prominent in negotiations with Dortmund, as the Bundesliga side hold out for as close to €150m as possible.
Reports from The Athletic claim, Liverpool are ‘increasingly unlikely’ to be able to secure a move for the 19-year-old, but Jurgen Klopp is not giving up completely.
🚨 As things stand, Liverpool increasingly unlikely to sign Jude Bellingham this summer. Expected price & financial power of rivals puts #LFC hopes in doubt. Pursuit not off & no firm decisions but sense is #MCFC + #RMFC in stronger position @TheAthleticFC https://t.co/c2bayXcnGq

Fresh reports from Four Four Two claim Klopp is ready to swoop for Wolves playmaker Matheus Nunes, with the 24-year-old impressing at Molineux.
Despite only joining at the start of the current season, in a £42.2m deal from Sporting Lisbon, Wolves are preparing themselves for a bid, and he would cost less than half of the Bellingham deal.
