Fabrizio Romano has shared a new update on Liverpool and their pursuit of Jude Bellingham. The Reds are certainly eager.
Of course, that meant mentioning Liverpool and what they’re doing in an attempt to land the player.
“He’s an unbelievable player, but I think it’s going to be very difficult for Borussia Dortmund to keep Jude Bellingham for another season,” says Romano. “Behind the scenes the situation is crazy.
“All of the big clubs are moving. I’m told that Jurgen Klopp is calling almost everyday to ask about updates on the situation of Jude Bellingham.
“For sure, Chelsea will go for an important midfielder, Bellingham is a player they appreciate. Manchester City are in the race, Real Madrid are following the situation. It is a big fight.”
Liverpool want Jude Bellingham
Liverpool are truly giving it all they have with this one. Reports have suggested for around a year now that Bellingham is their dream signing – the one they’d prioritise over any other.
And they’re seemingly doing just that. The need for a midfielder is completely clear to everyone right now and the squad would benefit immensely from a signing over the next week.
Only Liverpool won’t do that. They want Bellingham and will wait to have their shot at him – even if it means sacrificing this season a little. Romano has previously called their thinking ‘obsessive’.
Will it pay off? Only time will tell. Not only do Liverpool need to actually land Bellingham but he’ll have to be a remarkable success at this point. It’s a lot of pressure to pile on a teenager.
But everything we’ve seen from him suggests Bellingham has what it takes. Liverpool clearly believe he’s the kind of talent you put everything aside for – and Klopp wants them to do everything they can to sign him.
