Liverpool told price-tag for “phenomenal” player Jurgen Klopp really wants to sign

2 Min Read

Liverpool are stepping up their pursuit of Jude Bellingham, according to reports.

The 19-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best young talents in world football and has already established himself in a senior role at Borussia Dortmund.

Bellingham is wanted by some of the top clubs in Europe

He will also likely play a starring role for England at the World Cup in Qatar, which starts later this month.

The race is on to sign the teenager with the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid all showing interest.

German publication Bild claim that Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has an agreement with owners Fenway Sports Group to go ‘all in’ for Bellingham.

It is said they have set aside £86million to sign him, but that might not prove enough.

Journalist Jan Aage Fjortoft also added: “One club is working very hard behind the scenes to make this deal happening.”

Various reports claim Dortmund have valued the English teen at around £130m.

Any transfer deal would likely surpass the Premier League record signing of £100m that Man City paid for Jack Grealish.

Liverpool’s problems with their midfield have been well documented with the likes of Thiago, Jordan Henderson and James Milner all into their 30s, while Fabinho is 29.
