Speaking to Bild, via Fabrizio Romano, Zorc has stated that Bellingham has a long term future at Dortmund.

He said: “Bellingham made a conscious decision in favour of Borussia and the concept that we presented to him. His development in Dortmund is far from over. His head is very clear.”

The teenager, who reportedly makes £49,000-a-week with Dortmund, seems to be a genuine target for Liverpool and he would safeguard the Reds’ midfield for the next 10 years if he joined Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Liverpool have a carefully tailored approach to signing new players and that has involved signing younger players with the ability to grow into world-class operators while promoting youth talent from within.

The Reds’ younger players now feature the likes of Harvey Elliott, Curtis Jones, Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Adding Bellingham to the mix would only further increase their ability to plan for the future.
