BBC analyst Garth Crooks has suggested that Liverpool should spend a whopping £200m on two key players in the upcoming summer window if they want to compete with Manchester City in the 2023/24 season.

According to Crooks, the Reds need to sign Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham to strengthen their midfield and challenge for the title. However, Bellingham is close to signing with Real Madrid, making Liverpool’s chances of landing both players unlikely.

How Crucial is a Top-Four Finish for Liverpool’s Transfer Ambitions?

Crooks believes that Liverpool’s top priority is securing a top-four finish to attract high-quality players to the club. While Liverpool has been successful in the transfer market in the past, they haven’t been as willing to splash the cash as some of their rivals. However, Crooks believes that a significant statement in the transfer market is necessary to compete with City.

Can Liverpool Secure Rice and Bellingham Amid Intense Competition?

Liverpool’s midfield has been a concern this season, and signing Rice and Bellingham would bring European pedigree and Premier League experience to their engine room. With Jordan Henderson and Milner nearing the end of their careers, the prospective signings could represent a significant coup for Liverpool. The Reds might face a huge blow as App Store 1xBet suggests Jude Bellingham is reportedly close to signing with Real Madrid.

However, this does not change the fact that Liverpool needs to strengthen their midfield if they are to challenge for the title. Liverpool must continue building their team methodically, even if it means making smaller signings. As for Declan Rice, the race is still wide open with Arsenal and Chelsea keeping tabs on the English defensive mid and are ready to pay up to £120 million.

Crooks’ suggestion would be a significant statement of intent for Liverpool, and with Salah returning to form, along with the development of other key players, Liverpool could become a dominant force once again. However, this is unlikely to occur in reality, and Liverpool should continue building their team slowly but strongly.

While Liverpool may not be able to land both players, the need for a high-quality midfielder remains a priority. Alexis Mac-Allister, Ryan Gravenberch are currently Klopp‘s prime targets. Liverpool will have to find alternative options to strengthen their midfield if they are to compete with Manchester City in the future.
