As per Sky Sports News, Liverpool are optimistic about completing the signing of Jude Bellingham. Real Madrid have also made their interests clear in signing the youngster. Although Jude has two and a half years remaining on his contract, a good offer can see him leaving Borussia Dortmund. The youngster has made 112 appearances for the German club with 19 goals and 21 assists just at the age of 19. He is a complete box-to-box midfielder with intricate close control and a killer eye for key passes in the attacking third. He was a key player for his country in the recently finished World Cup.
