Liverpool are plotting a summer move for highly-rated young midfielder Jude Bellingham.
The young star has been a target for several top clubs in the past, including Spanish giants Real Madrid, so there should be a huge battle for his signature.
It’s thought Dortmund may value him at a staggering £101m.
Premier League legend Roy Keane has described Bellingham’s potential as “scary”.
The 18-year old would be a perfect new addition to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side who need to plan ahead for the future when the likes of Jordan Henderson and Thiago will become too old.
Bellingham could eventually be a natural successor to Thiago and could be a focal point of the club for years to come.
When you look at his possession stats you can see just how much he contributes going forward for Dortmund. He is in the top 3% across Europe’s top five leagues over the past year for touches in and carries into the attack penalty area.
But as with any Klopp side you have to be willing to work hard and trackback defensively. This is something that Bellingham also has in his locker as proven for both club and country.
He is also in the top 3% across Europe’s top five leagues over the past year for pressures in the attacking third, clearly showing that he is able to match the high pressing style that is a signature tactic at Anfield.
If Liverpool were to capture him then it would be a major coup and would massively improve their strength in depth.
Soon Bellingham will have a big decision to make, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he wanted to move to the Premier League having never played in it before, but which team would he choose?
