Liverpool: Jude Bellingham’s representatives hold ‘confidence’ over move

Liverpool: Jude Bellingham's representatives hold 'confidence' over move - Liverpool News

Liverpool target Jude Bellingham’s representatives hold ‘confidence’ that he will complete a move to Anfield this summer, according to journalist Jacque Talbot.

The Lowdown: The story so far

Premier League rivals Manchester City and Real Madrid, alongside the Reds, are currently the main contenders in the race to sign the 19-year-old at the end of the season after becoming one of the hottest prospects in football.

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder’s contract isn’t set to expire until 2025, so it’s been reported that Edin Terzic’s side would demand a club-record fee to even consider sanctioning his sale.

TalkSPORT claim that the England star is expected to make a decision on his future after the upcoming international break, but it sounds like Jurgen Klopp may already have an idea of where his next destination will be.

The Latest: Bellingham to join LFC?

Taking to Twitter, Talbot revealed that both Liverpool and Bellingham’s camp believe that Anfield is likely to be his new home when he departs Dortmund. He wrote:

“Exc – Confidence among Liverpool personnel Bellingham gets [done]. Those close to him saying the same, even that it’s about ‘formalities’. Caveat is that a lot of clubs – like Man City – echo a similar sentiment, but Reds appear first in line.”

The Verdict: Empty the pockets

Liverpool reportedly have a budget of £200m for the summer window and a significant portion of that has to be spent on Bellingham given the positive impact he would make on the side.

The Adidas-sponsored ace currently ranks in the 99th percentile for successful take-ons and the 98th for touches in the attacking penalty area (FBRef), not to mention that he’s posted 16 goal contributions in all competitions this season.

The Stourbridge-born talent also has the ability to operate in all five positions across the midfield and would bring leadership qualities along with that end product, having already captained Dortmund.

Following the 7-0 victory over Manchester United, Bellingham liked Trent Alexander-Arnold’s celebratory social media post, so this could have been a potential hint that the England teammates could soon be Liverpool teammates.
