You want to go from a 3x9 to 1x11.

You can’t go 1x12 with your wheels or any rim brake wheels.

You will need to use your old wheels.

You can’t go to disc.

You will need new brake levers, maybe Tektro.

Deore M5100 1x crank, BB, M5100 SGS RD & M5100 Shifter. Any 11 speed Shimano compatible mtb cassette up to 51t should work and a chain.

If you absolutely have to get a new wheelset, get a rim brake compatible like a Rhyno Lite with Deore 610. First re-evaluate even doing the upgrade.

You need to check out the M5100 specs before you buy. It is Hollowtech II, so there shouldn’t be an issue.

You might be pushing the investment for that bike, but if you do the work yourself it’ll be cheaper than a new bike if you don’t need wheels.

There are also maintenance items such as brake pads, cables and housings, tires, grips that will increase the cost.
