Liverpool: Reds ‘very interested’ in Bellingham

While a move this summer is seemingly not on the cards, it seems as if Jude Bellingham signing for Liverpool next summer is definitely on the cards, with the Reds said to be very interested in signing the Borussia Dortmund wonderkid.

What’s the word?

Liverpool are understood to be keen on strengthening their central midfield options but are willing to wait another season to make a move for Bellingham, who has established himself as one of the top young talents in world football during his spell with the Bundesliga side.

According to the Athletic’s Liverpool correspondent James Pearce, Liverpool are “very interested” in signing the 19-year-old next summer. He wrote:

“Very interested. The England midfielder is a class act and it’s hard to believe he’s only just turned 19. However, he won’t be leaving Borussia Dortmund this summer. Having already sold Erling Haaland to Manchester City, the Bundesliga club don’t intend to lose another star name in the same window.

“There will be serious competition for Bellingham’s signature in 2023. Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United are also in the race, with reports in Germany this week suggesting it would take €120 million (£103 million) to sign him. Bellingham doesn’t have a release clause and has three years left on his contract.

“Liverpool will certainly be in the conversation and it helps that Bellingham has a good relationship with captain Jordan Henderson from their time together with England.”

Supporters will love it

Bellingham is undoubtedly going to have a long and very successful career, and Liverpool fans will be hoping it is for them at Anfield.

Since signing for Dortmund from Birmingham City, the midfielder has gone on to make 89 appearances for the German side, contributing ten goals and 18 assists.

He also already has 15 England caps to his name, despite only turning 19 last week, so it is clear that he has a huge amount of potential.

Last season saw Bellingham make 32 appearances for Dortmund in the Bundesliga, in which he contributed three goals and eight assists, averaging an impressive 7.12 rating from WhoScored for his performances.

This was enough to rank him as the third-best performer at the club, which emphasises just how important a player he is for them despite his age, and there is little to suggest that he wouldn’t become a superstar at Liverpool.
