Amid talks of a £106m ($128m/€120m) release clause for Fernández, it is unlikely that Liverpool will opt for a move for the Argentina international over Bellingham, though the Reds could always use their previous astute approach in the transfer market to find a player who can maintain the club's dominance without parting ways with a club-record transfer fee.
Should Jürgen Klopp miss out on landing the dream marquee midfielder that he is looking for, there is still promise that the club could find a strong fit elsewhere. Thiago has shown that there is exponential performance value in acquiring players who are already in their prime years, and the likelihood is that he will maintain his place as a regular starter in Klopp's side for the rest of the former Borussia Dortmund manager's current deal.
A repeat of the first-half performance on Friday in Monday's clash against Brentford could see fate less forgiving to Liverpool — who were carried at times by Thiago against Leicester. Gakpo will undoubtedly strengthen Klopp's hand in attack, but with focus now on whether the Reds will bring forward plans to sign a midfielder in the summer, the club's decision could hinge on the performance against the Bees.

FSG's transfer strategy throughout their time at the club has always been to acquire players on the cusp of world-class status with a significant re-s TC8 ale value. That hasn't been without some excellent pieces of scouting in recent years, but in a market that sees transfer fees growing more significant by the day, Liverpool could benefit from the same strategy that encouraged them to land Thiago in 2020.
Making his debut for the club as a 29-year-old, it was clear that Liverpool's focus was to acquire quality over any possible future sale. Of course, the Reds would ideally aim to land a player who wouldn't depreciate in value over the course of his contract as well, but that isn't always possible — particularly when competing against the likes of Real Madrid for signatures.

Thiago, who has almost singlehandedly evolved the way in which Liverpool play, offers the perfect blueprint for that  slot method, and it's one that the Reds may need to consider as the power in the Premier League continues to shift — with an emerging Newcastle, and an Arsenal side that are now seven points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
With Cody Gakpo already secured, it is unclear yet whether Liverpool will make another move in January, and as the spotlight continues to follo sport w both Enzo Fernández and Jude Bellingham (the latter, certainly, is a target), it would be by no means a catastrophe if the Reds were to miss out on both.
With both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keïta out of contract in the summer, Liverpool can't afford to have another key player to replace in midfield. That could mean that the next priority for FSG is to hand Thiago a new contract extension, with his importance in the squad this season reflecting a similar level to that of Mohamed Salah.
