Report: Liverpool are now willing to pay a significant fee in order to land Jude Bellingham

Liverpool are willing to pay a significant fee for Jude Bellingham, according to reports. The Reds have a transfer plan in place.

This comes from the Liverpool Echo. They claim that Liverpool would be willing to pay a significant fee for Jude Bellingham next summer when he’s expected to be available.

The Reds want a midfielder and hold an interest in Bellingham. Now, just how ‘significant’ a fee remains to be seen as competition for his signature will play a part.

Bellingham is one of the brightest talents on the planet, after all – a genuine ‘superstar’ in the eyes of some pundits. Every team would love to have him and this certainly won’t be a simple transfer. Borussia Dortmund will want at least £103m, it seems, and other clubs could push that higher.

Liverpool ready to pay big fee for Jude Bellingham

Would Liverpool get involved with the likes of Manchester City or Paris Saint-Germain? We find it hard to believe, such is their wealth – the Reds have never really operated in that market. Still, it sounds as though they’d be willing to go higher for Bellingham than anyone else.

That’s certainly how we see things. We’ve long said that the teenager should be Liverpool’s first £100m player – he’s simply a perfect fit at the perfect time.

But again, this one could get out of hand. The eventual figures involved for Erling Haaland, for instance, were absolutely ridiculous. Wages, the transfer fee, agent fees and all sorts of other expenditures pushed the overall price into the stratosphere. We expect something similar with Bellingham.

And so we’ll just have to wait and see. If Liverpool can sway the player, perhaps that eliminates a lot of the competition but this one certainly won’t be easy. We’ll cross our fingers, though – Bellingham would be something of a dream signing next summer.
