LIVERPOOL are planning a double midfield transfer swoop for Jude Bellingham and Matheus Nunes, according to reports.
The Reds are in dire need of a facelift in the middle of the park.

Jordan Henderson, James Milner and star man Thiago are over 30, while holding midfielder Fabinho is nearing it at 29.
Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Arthur have rarely featured for the Reds this season due to injury struggles.
And according to the Daily Mail, Jurgen Klopp is set to freshen up his midfield options with Bellingham and Nunes being targeted.
Liverpool are huge admirers of Bellingham, 19, who is Borussia Dortmund’s star man, as well as a starter for Gareth Southgate’s England.
The player is good friends with Reds captain Henderson and right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold.
However, Bellingham is attracting interest from most of Europe’s elite clubs.
Real Madrid and Manchester City are two other teams keeping tabs on the ex-Birmingham ace.
Bellingham would be rumoured to cost £88million plus future add-ons, which could take the deal towards £125m-£130m.
Nunes, meanwhile, only joined Wolves in the summer from Sporting Lisbon.
And despite Wolves’ Premier League woes, Nunes has been a standout performer.
Nunes joined Wolves for a club record £42m and the Midlands club are unlikely to take a loss on the 24-year-old.
He also has a big reputation with City boss Pep Guardiola, who once described him as one of the best midfielders in the world, even while he was playing his trade in Portugal.
Klopp got a closer look at Nunes on Tuesday night, when his Liverpool team beat Wolves 1-0 in an FA Cup third round replay.
