Liverpool: Reds to go “all out” for Jude Bellingham

Liverpool: Reds to go “all out” for Jude Bellingham -Liverpool News

Liverpool will look to go “all out” in their bid to reshape their midfield ranks, with England’s World Cup star Jude Bellingham a priority, according to Sky Sports journalist Dharmesh Sheth. 

The Lowdown: Bellingham’s constant rise

Ever since he burst onto the scene with Birmingham City in 2019, a constant theme with the £130m-valued teenager has been his consistent development. This is evident from his attribution metrics, which have seen him become one of the most well-rounded midfield assets in world football over the last few years despite still being only 19. 

Still a teenager, Bellingham has asserted himself as a talismanic figure for both Borussia Dortmund and England, catching the eye with his tremendous performances in Qatar over the last couple of weeks.

He has been on Liverpool’s radar well before then, although he is unsurprisingly wanted by a number of high-profile European clubs, as per The Athletic.

The Latest: Liverpool badly want Bellingham

According to Sheth, Liverpool may look to go “all out” to try and bring in a midfielder of Bellingham’s calibre. 

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the journalist said: “Arthur Melo could return to Juventus [at the end of his loan spell] and then they’ll go all out next summer to try and bring in someone like Jude Bellingham.

“I can’t see them spending huge, huge money on a midfielder if it isn’t someone that they’ve been chasing for a long time.

“As I’ve been saying, it’s very, very difficult for clubs to buy big-name players in the January transfer window. One, because of cost, and two, the selling club simply don’t like to do a deal when they’re in various competitions in the middle of the season.”

The Verdict: Liverpool need him

Having proven himself as a standout player for England in the World Cup so far – he is their second-highest player by WhoScored rankings – Bellingham is clearly ready to make his mark in the Premier League, and you get the impression that his third season at Borussia Dortmund could well be his last.

Whilst it is very unlikely that a move would happen in January, the summer looks to be a safe bet to secure his services, and it’s hard to deny that Liverpool badly need him.

First up, how many Liverpool players won the 1966 World Cup with England?

The Reds’ midfield has been cited as a weak point throughout the season so far, a situation not helped by injuries and the veteran age profile of some players in that position.

Therefore, Kopites will surely be glad to hear that the club are likely to do their utmost to try and sign him in 2023.
