Jurgen Klopp wants to sign Borussia Dortmund teenage sensation Jude Bellingham. According to Daily Star, Liverpool could sign Bellingham for a club-record fee of £80 million.
Meanwhile, Jude Bellingham was a top target for Manchester United in 2020. Instead, he chose to sign for the German side, Borussia Dortmund. Jurgen Klopp believes that signing Bellingham will be a statement signing for The Reds. Borussia Dortmund signed Bellingham for £25 million from Birmingham City in the summer of 2020. Since his debut for Dortmund, he has been nothing but sensational. Moreover, he has become one of the teenagers in world football.
Despite just being 18 Jude Bellingham has already made his debut for England. He was also a part of the England squad that reached the final of Euro 2020. Last summer Liverpool’s bitter rival Manchester United were leading the race for his signature. Sir Alex Ferguson even gave him a guided tour of the club’s Carrington training ground. But he chose to join Dortmund as it is one of the best clubs for any young player to flourish.
How could Bellingham fit in Liverpool squad?
Klopp believes that Jude Bellingham would be ideal for Liverpool. Meanwhile, Liverpool could face competition only from Manchester United. But, they can have a huge step ahead of United as they are working on signing Jude’s teammate Erling Haaland.
According to reports, it’s unlikely that he would leave Dortmund next summer. Dortmund are reluctant to let him leave next summer as their biggest asset Erling Haaland could make a move. Since his debut for Dortmund Bellingham has already played over 51 games and has been vital for them.
If Liverpool manages to sign him that would make Bellingham their club-record signing ahead of Virgil Van Dijk. Liverpool signed the Dutch centre back for £75 million from Southampton.
Further, The Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah is yet to sign a new deal with the club. Thus, it might be possible that the Egyptian might leave the club next summer. And thus, Liverpool could bring in some players from the sell of Salah.
