According to Dean Jones. Liverpool are willing to break the bank for the transfer of Jude Bellingham. Liverpool are linked with the young player for a long time now. The 19-year-old has had some magnificent performances in Germany. Consequently, Liverpool are willing to break their previous transfer record to get Bellingham.
Jude Bellingham is arguably one of the best young midfielders in the world. It is only a matter of time before he departs Dortmund to make his mark at some big club. Liverpool are touted as the club most likely to get Bellingham. Consequently, they are willing to pay about £80m for the player. If not Liverpool, some other big club is bound to pay the price anyway to pry away Bellingham from Dortmund.
Dean Jones’ verdict on Liverpool going after Bellingham
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Dean Jones gave his verdict on Liverpool’s interest in Bellingham. He said:
“I think they (Liverpool) would be willing to break their transfer record to sign Bellingham. That would only mean getting to about £80 million, so it’s probably going to happen soon anyway given the way prices are.”
Liverpool have had a slow start to their current season. They are currently eighth in the League. The league leaders, Arsenal, are nine points ahead of the Reds. Liverpool’s lack of intensity in the midfield is one of the reasons that they are underperforming this season. Arthur Melo was the only new arrival in the midfield. However, he is a short-term solution to the jeopardy at hand. Many pundits think that Bellingham is a part of the solution to the midfield woes of Liverpool. However, the transfer will not be easy at all. Many big clubs will want to sign the player when he is available on the market. Only time will tell where Bellingham ends up
