Jude Bellingham is one of the most wanted young midfielders in world football, and it is only a matter of time before the teenage sensation gets a big-money move to one of Europe’s elite. Bellingham starred for England at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, and Liverpool and Real Madrid are seen as the two front-runners to secure his signature. Los Blancos view Bellingham as the successor to Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, while the Reds need to bolster their midfield to boost their chance of making the top four this season.

Enzo Fernandez made his name at the 2022 FIFA World Cup for Argentina, winning the young player of the year award for the eventual champions and playing a stellar role in midfield on their road to the title. Fernandez’s exploits in Qatar has put him on the radar of plenty of European clubs, including Chelsea and Liverpool, and the Argentine might be on the move this winter. Despite signing Fernandez last summer, Benfica will sell the Argentine if a club matches his release clause, and the rumours suggest high-spenders Chelsea are willing to break the bank and sign the Argentine midfielder for a fee of £106m.

Joao Felix’s career has stagnated under Diego Simeone after his club-record €126 million move from Benfica in 2019, and Atletico Madrid are willing to cut their losses and let the Portuguese forward leave in the January transfer window. Los Rojiblancos are open to a six-month loan move for Felix but are reportedly requesting a substantial loan fee in the region of €15 million in addition to the full coverage of his €6 million wages. Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal have all been rumoured to show interest in a player of Felix’s calibre, but the English clubs will need the loan fee to come down substantially if they are to make any deal happen in this window.
