Liverpool plotting bid for Jude Bellingham

Liverpool are now plotting a bid for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham as Jurgen Klopp aims to strengthen his squad.

What’s the word?

According to Goal, the 18-year-old is one of the players for whom the German is expected to make a bid during the upcoming summer transfer window in order to boost the Reds’ ageing midfield.

Should Liverpool sign Jude Bellingham?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The England star won’t come cheap, however, with a bid of around £85m required for Dortmund to even consider selling him.

Klopp would love Bellingham

Liverpool have had an excellent season so far, and it could get even better. They have won the Carabao Cup, are through to the FA Cup final, still in touch for the Premier League title and have one foot in the Champions League final.

Klopp’s recruitment has been astonishing in recent years, and his ability to snap up players who can take Liverpool to the next level is arguably his best trait.

Bellingham certainly seems to fit this mould, and at the tender age of 18, he could be the future at the heart of the Reds midfield.

Praise has been coming the youngster’s way from all angles, with England boss Gareth Southgate describing him as “phenomenal” after he named the Dortmund star in the Three Lions squad for the delayed Euro 2020 tournament.

Bellingham has featured for the club on 41 occasions this season, netting six times and providing 13 assists, an excellent return for the midfielder.

Given that Liverpool have struggled for goals from the middle of the park in 2021/22, with the notable exception of Fabinho, Klopp would surely love to add a rising star in Bellingham with a proven goals and assists record in a major European league.

First up in this 2020/21 season quiz, how many PL goals did Mo Salah score?

With Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara both on the wrong side of 30, and players such as James Milner out of contract in the summer, signing a new midfielder will surely be high on Klopp’s list of priorities this summer.

Although Liverpool may need to break the bank to do it, securing the services of the 18-year-old would be a smart move, not just for now but for the long-term future.
