After featuring regularly in his debut season for Borussia Dortmund, Jude Bellingham has not only managed to retain his place under new manager Marco Rose, but is also shining for the club this term.
The midfielder has three goals and six assists in 14 matches in all competitions, and his displays have caught Liverpool’s attention.
According to Bild, Jürgen Klopp is ‘keen’ on the 18-year-old, who currently has a market value of €70m.
It’s explained the England international ‘would fit like a fist on the eye for the full throttle football’ of the Merseyside club. However, a potential deal remains difficult due to the player’s price tag.
Although his value is €70m, Bild state the Reds manager is aware only an offer ‘over €120m’ will tempt BVB.
Borussia Dortmund are ‘currently doing everything they can’ to keep Bellingham at the club for the long-term. The best proof of this is the efforts made by the German club to sign the player’s brother, Jobe, from Birmingham City.
Bild state the duo’s mother, Denise, would be delighted if Jobe follows his brother to BVB.
If Jobe were to end up at Borussia Dortmund, this and Jude’s high asking price would make it complicated for Liverpool to sign the midfielder.
