Report: Club are worried FSG could sign "strong" player for Liverpool in £50m+ transfer


A year ago, making the move to Liverpool may not have looked like the best idea for a top European player. The Reds looked at the end of a successful cycle and the beginning of one to forget. One summer transfer window later however, and Jurgen Klopp looks on course to write yet another chapter of success in the Anfield history books.

When the January transfer window comes along, as well as the summer edition, pitching the idea of a move to Liverpool should be far easier, especially if they secure their return to the Champions League in the current Premier League campaign. They could even convince a Real Madrid target to choose Klopp's new project over a move to the La Liga giants.

In a chaotic summer which saw Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabinho and James Milner all make way for Dominik Szoboszlai, Ryan Gravenberch, Wataru Endo and Alexis Mac Allister, Liverpool deserve great credit for how well they've transitioned. Klopp's new-look midfield has been almost flawless compared to how defeated the Reds looked in the middle of the park throughout the previous campaign.

Having focused on their midfield during the summer, however, Liverpool must now strengthen their defensive options. And that could result in the arrival of Goncalo Inacio. According to AS, Real Madrid are worried that Liverpool could sign Inacio in the near-future. Those at the Santiago Bernabeu reportedly want to reinforce their defence in January, and could move for Inacio, who reportedly has a €60m (£52m) release clause.

Real Madrid, of course, landed long-term Liverpool target Jude Bellingham in the summer, making their pursuit of Inacio all the more interesting when the January transfer window swings open. Perhaps determined to avoid another defeat against Los Blancos off the pitch, the Reds may well push on to secure the Sporting CP defender's signature.
