Report: Liverpool may need FSG out if they're to sign Jude Bellingham, it's becoming increasingly difficult

Liverpool’s move for Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham is becoming increasingly difficult, according to SportBILD.

As per the report, the Reds’ biggest struggle in signing the 19-year-old phenomenon comes from a financial standpoint.

It is claimed the Merseyside outfit can only raise the ‘mega revenue’ needed, believed to be £132m, if Fenway Sports Group can welcome minority investment imminently. Alternatively, the other option is for new owners to come in on a full takeover of the club.

The possibility of missing out on Champions League football could also hand Liverpool a huge financial blow in this.

However, Bellingham believes a move to Anfield ‘remains interesting’. It is just a case of whether the Reds can afford to do such a deal.

Liverpool may need FSG out to sign Bellingham

As the frontrunners in the race, it would be an absolute travesty for Liverpool to miss out on Bellingham due to a lack of transfer funds.

The England international could choose to join any club in world football, so if he decides on Anfield, there is no way a move shouldn’t go through.

FSG need to hurry their search for minority investment, as this appears to be the most realistic route to securing additional funds.

If the arrival of the 19-year-old, who has been described as a ‘special’ player by former Red Michael Owen, is dependent on FSG, maybe it is time for new owners to come in.

The club cannot afford to risk missing out on the midfielder, having based their sole plan for the future around him.

If this means seeing new owners takeover the club, so be it. Bellingham’s arrival is more important.
