Thommo urging Liverpool to go for Borussia Dortmund pair Haaland, Bellingham

Liverpool hero Phil Thompson says they must think big in the transfer market.

Thompson wants his former side to be in the running to sign both Erling Haaland and Jude Bellingham next summer. Thompson admits there will be plenty of competition for the Borussia Dortmund duo. However, he would like Liverpool to at least make an attempt to sign both players.

He told the Daily Express: "If it was me, things are going well, but we did have issues in centre-mid with the boys.

"Maybe somebody in that area, because that's where the energy levels come from with our team. So that. I would think up front, I'd think you'd need more backup.

"I think that's going to be a big area where we sort of need to make sure.

"And I'd like to think our hat is going to be in the ring for some of the big players that are going to be about.

"Haaland is one, even Bellingham, who I think is going to be a star.

"These players, I just want us to be asking questions, we need to be in there, and hopefully we are saving our money for a big one."
