Jude Bellingham showed Liverpool what £130m could get them with an incredible goal earlier today. The midfielder is certainly special.
Borussia Dortmund were certainly made to work for their win over Augsburg on Sunday. They eventually took the points in a 4-3, with Jude Bellingham scoring a fantastic opener.
The Englishman picked the ball up just outside the box and created space for himself with a perfect drop of the shoulder. Once he had that gap between him and his defender, Bellingham lashed a fierce effort inside the near post.
It was a reminder of just how good Bellingham is. He controlled the situation, showing off his intelligence, close control and technique all in one moment.
Not that he was the only teenager to score a fantastic goal for Dortmund. 18-year-old Jamie Bynoe-Gittens – the latest talented English kid to break through at the club – got Dortmund’s third with a long-range effort that curled inside the far post.
Augsburg replied to that a minute later, only for Gio Reyna to seal the win with a magnificent dipping volley. Dortmund certainly have a lot of talent there.
Jude Bellingham will impress Liverpool with fantastic goal
Bellingham has had a fantastic season. This is just the latest highlight, with a wonderful Champions League campaign catching the eye early on. He then went to the World Cup with England and shone brightly – Harry Kane came away calling him ‘outstanding’.
Liverpool, of course, want to sign Bellingham. There’s been talk for over a year now that he was the priority target, with Fabrizio Romano claiming they’re ‘obsessive’ about him.
This goal shows why. Bellingham is exactly the kind of player Liverpool lack right now – someone capable of winning midfield battles but with the quality on the ball to threaten goals.
We’re not sure there’s a better possible signing for the Reds. Just think back to the Chelsea game yesterday and you’ll immediately see what an impact Bellingham could have at Anfield.
If they can make it happen, they shouldn’t hesitate. No matter the price.
