Transfer news LIVE: Liverpool chase Bellingham AND Nunes, Gallagher wanted by FIVE Prem clubs, Newcastle eye Maddison

    Good morning football fans

    Liverpool are looking to boost their midfield with two mega signings in the summer transfer window.

    According to the Mail, the Reds’ manager Jurgen Klopp wants to splash the cash for Borussia Dortmund superstar Jude Bellingham.

    Klopp would also like to land Wolves ace Matheus Nunes, who only moved to Molineux last summer.

    Bellingham may cost up to £130million with add-ons, while the West Midlands side paid £42m for Nunes just six months ago and would want to see a healthy profit.

    Meanwhile, Chelsea ace Connor Gallagher is wanted by five different Premier League clubs during the January transfer window.

    According to Sky Sports, Gallagher could leave Stamford Bridge after struggling for minutes under manager Graham Potter.

    Newcastle, Everton, Southampton, Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace, where he played on loan last season, are all keeping tabs on the midfielder.

    But the Blues are reluctant to sell mid-season and will only consider loan exits at the moment.

    And Newcastle have made Leicester star James Maddison their No1 transfer target this month.

    The Magpies failed with bids of £40m and £45m for Maddison last year.

    But transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reckons the Toon’s boss Eddie Howe remains a huge fan of the playmaker.

    And Howe will try to sign the England international again in the near future.

    Finally, Manchester City and Real Madrid have joined Chelsea in the race to sign RB Leipzig star Josko Gvardiol.

    Romano said, via wettfreunde: “Chelsea have long been the big favourites because they made an offer in the last 24 hours of the summer transfer window.

    “€80million (£70m) + €10million (£9m) in additional payments, making a total of €90million (£79m) to sign the player until June 2023. Leipzig said no and decided to keep the player and extend his contract, so nothing happened in the end.

    “Chelsea are still following the situation but they have just signed Benoit Badiashile as a left-footed centre-back. Now the race is open. Other clubs are also interested in Gvardiol. Manchester City and Real Madrid are after Gvardiol.

    “There is a feeling that Gvardiol will switch in the summer and not in January.”
