Michael Owen shares his ‘fear’ for Liverpool’s transfer window if Jude Bellingham signs

Michael Owen fears Liverpool will only sign Jude Bellingham this summer without making moves to improve other aspects of the squad.

Owen is being interviewed by BT Sport After Liverpool beat Real Madrid 1-0 away on Wednesday night.

The result knocked Liverpool out of the Champions League 6-2 on aggregate.

A 2-0 first-half deficit to a 6-2 exit was very worrying for Liverpool and once again underscored the need for signings.

Liverpool clearly need to bolster their midfield this summer, with Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham a prime target.

Pundit and former Liverpool striker Owen has now offered his opinion that a Bellingham deal could still happen despite the risk of missing out on the Champions League.

Owen does worry that Liverpool may only be able to sign Bellingham and not anyone else because one signing would eat up the entire budget.

“I know there’s a kitten out there that could buy Bellingham for £100m, if not more,” Owen said. “But if they don’t get into the Champions League, then it’s going to be a bigger blow to the treasury. pressure.”

“I don’t think it’s right to buy a bunch of players. I’m going to try to break the bank for Bellingham and I’m afraid that’s the end of it,” he added.

Liverpool definitely need more than one signing, even Jude Bellingham

Liverpool have been chasing Bellingham for some time and it is clear that he is the number one summer target.

However, the Borussia Dortmund star will cost at least £100m, while a number of other clubs – such as Manchester City, Manchester United and Real Madrid – are interested in Bellingham.

This appears to be a very difficult deal for Liverpool, who cannot afford to sign just one player.

Liverpool need two or even three midfielders this summer, and another centre-back should be on the wish list.

Another right back might even be needed if Calvin Ramsay isn’t ready to back up Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Liverpool may have to ponder the long, hard question; do they sign a truly elite player at Bellingham and squander their budget, or do they hope to bring in two, three or four players for a similar price?

It’s a tricky question and one that Liverpool may have to answer if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.
