Jurgen Klopp must turn down a reunion with Wijnaldum and make Bellingham Liverpool’s top target.
JURGEN KLOPP needs to put Jude Bellingham first and avoid the temptation of Georginio Wijnaldum.
Liverpool never replaced Georginio Wijnaldum after the Dutchman left last summer, and a chance to resign the midfielder has already presented itself, but Jurgen Klopp should turn it down and focus his efforts on signing Jude Bellingham.
According to reports, Georginio Wijnaldum, who only left Liverpool last summer, is already pushing for a return to the Premier League.
The Dutchman left Liverpool at the end of his contract to join Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer, but despite a massive wage increase, Wijnaldum is said to be unhappy at his new club and wants to return to England.
Liverpool never replaced Wijnaldum, and there is talk that Jurgen Klopp could arrange an unlikely reunion with the player he adored at Anfield.
However, Klopp should resist the temptation to resign Wijnaldum and instead look ahead, persuade Liverpool to go all-in and sign Jude Bellingham, as former Red Jamie Carragher has suggested.
In the summer, Liverpool decided against signing a new midfielder, instead giving Harvey Elliott, Curtis Jones, and Naby Keita more important roles in the team.
However, injuries and illness have left them light in the midfield at times this season, prompting Klopp to make another signing a priority.
Due to his current situation, it appears that Wijnaldum would like to return to the Premier League on loan, and the Dutchman has been linked with Aston Villa, Newcastle, and Liverpool.
Klopp has been linked with bringing Wijnaldum back to Anfield, as he stated as the Dutchman left that he is more than just a player, but also a friend, and that he will be missed.
“Where do I begin? I met this wonderful player for the first time – obviously, we played against him – in my living room at home,” Klopp said as Wijnaldum walked away.
I needed to see him and speak with him.
“It clicked between us from the first moment; he’s a very friendly, very smart, and very open person, and that hasn’t changed; it’s only gotten better since then.”
“It’s very emotional for me because I’m losing a friend who we’ll miss.”
That’s just the way things are.”
Klopp, on the other hand, must.
