No regrets about missing out on Jude Bellingham...Journalist notes that Liverpool has a well-rounded transfers Transfers

Liverpool suffered a poor first half of last season and only in the second half of the season did they recover and climb back to fifth place in the Premier League.

In the summer, Liverpool worked to revamp their midfield in order to regain the intensity in midfield that had been one of the reasons for their poor performance.

Since the start of the season, they have regained the strength to win even when they are ahead. As a result, Liverpool has been successful in its reinforcement efforts, but the process has had its twists and turns.

The club had their sights set on England midfielder Jude Bellingham since last summer, but had to give up on him after the transfer fee skyrocketed due to his success with both club and national team.

After the transfer market opened, the club had a hectic summer as they tried to acquire Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia, both of whom moved to Chelsea, but it was not the usual Liverpool, with moves left and right, but Ben Jacobs, a sports journalist, insisted that the club has no regrets.

“I think Liverpool would argue they were different deals at different times, and Bellingham’s wages and agent’s fees were higher than with [Moises] Caicedo. Liverpool don’t have regrets because they’ve had a very productive midfield revamp.”

“To get Gravenberch was a big win because they wanted him before he went to Bayern when he was still at Ajax, even though it came late in the window. Szoboszlai looks like a phenomenal player. He’s hit the ground running and has been one of the best signings from the summer window. And then Mac Allister, a World Cup winner, was a bargain at £35m simply because of a release clause when he signed his new deal before the World Cup.”

“So, Liverpool’s logic for pulling out of Bellingham was that they’d be able to spend that same money on three or four, and they’ve kept their word, and the three or four that they’ve brought in, with Endo for a slightly lower price as well, have all done well.”
