Liverpool’s transfer window seems to be complete already in terms of incomings, with Jurgen Klopp’s side having moved early to land their top targets. 

The Reds have added Darwin Nunez, Calvin Ramsey and Fabio Carvalho to their domestic cup double-winning squad from last term, but it appears that there won’t be any more new arrivals at Anfield this summer.

Liverpool had been heavily linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham, but Klopp will wait until next summer to attempt to lure the England international away from Germany.

Klopp’s decision to hold fire on the Bellingham deal comes as a result of Erling Haaland’s move to Manchester City, and the idea that the German side will not be willing to let two of their biggest stars leave during the same window.

Haaland’s move to City has ruled out any chance of Bellingham being sold

That could prove costly, though, with Manchester United set to rival the Reds for the Englishman’s signature next year, according to The Athletic via The Express.

The report claims that Liverpool could lose out on the midfielder next summer, with United usually willing to offer higher wages to targets.

It is also suggested that Klopp’s side could be otherwise engaged in negotiations with Mohamed Salah, who is set to be out of contract next summer and is currently showing no signs of pledging his future to the club.

United have held an interest in Bellingham for more than two years now, and were keen to sign him when he left Birmingham City for Germany in 2020.

Erik ten Hag is keen to add at least one midfielder to his squad, with Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong currently the most likely candidate to join the Red Devils.
