Liverpool are reportedly confident they can sign Borussia Dortmund’s teenage midfielder Jude Bellingham in the summer.
A central figure for the Reds since joining from Birmingham City in 2020, he has eight goals and 13 assists in 71 appearances for the club.
The England midfielder has also been impressive this season, scoring four goals and providing nine assists in 25 Bundesliga games,
with Bellingham still under contract at Signa. Iduna Park until 2025 and Dortmund have no intention of releasing the midfielder this summer.
However, according to CaughtOffside, Liverpool are growing optimistic of being able to sign the teenager ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.
Bellingham has also been in impressive form this season. Contributing four goals and nine assists in 25 outings for his Bundesliga club.
The report claims that Manchester United. Manchester City and Chelsea are also interested in a deal. But Jurgen Klopp’s side believe that they are at the head of the queue for his signature. At the 2022 World Cup.
If Liverpool do succeed in prising Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund in the summer. They could well end up with a £90million bargain.
And if that seems like a contradiction in terms, then perhaps you don’t appreciate just how complete a footballer the 18-year-old England midfielder is maturing in to.
Barely a week passes without another sublime Bellingham assist or moment of magic lighting up the Bundesliga or the Champions League.
