The Reds also plan to sign Jude Bellingham this January. Ian Wright claims that the Liverpool side is ready to go again in the transfer window. Wright commented,

“Unbelievable numbers, for 23, that’s fantastic, you have to say. You can see what Liverpool are trying to do, they are trying to build.”

He further added,

“Gakpo, I thought he was fantastic at the World Cup a lot of people were saying. Then Jude Bellingham was fantastic at the World Cup at 19. If that’s where Liverpool are going, then you can see they are getting themselves ready to go again.” 

Both Arsenal and Liverpool are supposed to be very busy in the January transfer window. Although both the clubs have very different aims this season. The Gunners are seven points clear at the top of the table. This came as a surprise to many, as nobody had expected Arsenal to do so well this season. Arsenal are now 15 points off of Liverpool, who are just hovering outside of the top 4 even after 15 matches into the season.
