Rise and rise of Jude Bellingham

On the 6th of August 2019, Jude Bellingham became the youngest player in Birmingham City history when he started an EFL Cup first round tie against Portsmouth. He was just 16 years and 38 days old.

After that he became a regular feature for the Midlands side, standing out in one of the world’s toughest divisions whilst still at school.

Naturally Europe’s top clubs came knocking.

In the summer of 2020, Jude Bellingham signed for Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth around £25m.

Since then he’s become a first team regular in Germany and he’s established himself in the England set up.

The club decided against signing a replacement for the Dutchman despite him being one of the most dependable players in the league.

Consequently a number of fans believe the Reds will move for a midfielder next summer instead.

According to the Daily Star, Liverpool want to sign Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund.

The Reds will allegedly bid up to £80m for the wonderkid.
