‘I’ll fly to Dortmund’ – Steven Gerrard sends Jude Bellingham Liverpool transfer message
Steven Gerrard may have had two managerial moves since departing Liverpool’s youth setup but home clearly remains where the heart is for the legendary former midfielder.
Speaking to BT Sport ahead of the Reds’ encounter with Chelsea, in comments relayed on Twitter by the Echo’s Paul Gorst, he noted his willingness to fight for his old club’s case when it came to the potential transfer of Jude Bellingham.

“All he needs to do is give me a date in the diary when he’s free and I’ll fly to Dortmund to talk about [a move].”

Given the 19-year-well-documented old’s affection for the former Aston Villa manager, the Merseysiders’ chances surely couldn’t hurt to foster some conversation between their top transfer target and the currently-employed coach.
If we can persuade the player that our project is better than the competition, then money will be the main concern for us as always.
Bellingham will be able to provide the assurance that there won’t be a lack of playing time at Anfield, which neither Real Madrid nor Manchester City will be able to make with absolute confidence.
The Englishman has every reason to assume that he’ll play a crucial role in the rebuilding of our midfield over the course of the next two transfer windows.
