Liverpool: Reds would need to obliterate transfer record to sign Jude Bellingham

Liverpool: Reds would need to obliterate transfer record to sign Jude Bellingham -Liverpool News

Liverpool would reportedly need to obliterate their transfer record to sign Borussia Dortmund and England star Jude Bellingham.

The Lowdown: Reds working on Bellingham deal

It has been reported that the Reds are working on a deal to sign the teenager ahead of next summer.

Hailed as a ‘monster‘ by former Sheffield United midfielder Curtis Woodhouse after his exploits at the World Cup in Qatar, the 19-year-old was England’s second-best performer at the tournament as per WhoScored metrics.

He scored one goal, supplied one assist and picked up one man-of-the-match award on their way to making the quarter-finals, where they were knocked out by eventual finalists France (WhoScored).

The Latest: Would obliterate Liverpool’s transfer record

Writing in his latest piece for The Times, journalist Paul Joyce has claimed that Liverpool would have to obliterate their transfer record if they want to sign Bellingham, with Jurgen Klopp recently showing his admiration for the player by dubbing him ‘exceptional’.

The Reds will seek to compete with both Real Madrid and Manchester City for his signature, as Bellingham was valued at £130m by Dortmund before his performances at the World Cup, which has heightened the excitement over his talents.

The Verdict: Break the bank

No matter what the potential cost, Liverpool simply need to break the bank to get Bellingham in through the door at Anfield.

At Dortmund this season before the World Cup, he managed an impressive nine goals and three assists from midfield in all competitions (WhoScored), and he seems to be growing in stature with every match that he plays at the highest level.

At just 19, his potential is truly frightening; and with Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner’s contracts expiring next summer, and Jordan Henderson (32) and Thiago (31) into their 30s, Bellingham could be a mainstay in Liverpool’s midfield for the next decade if FSG can finally bring him to Merseyside.
