“I’m really excited about the prospect”- Journalist reveals that Liverpool is closing in on signing Jude Bellingham
Jude Bellingham and Liverpool seem to be a story that is currently gaining momentum, and many people are getting thrilled about the prospect of seeing him wear a red shirt.
Speaking on the Transfer Gossip Daily podcast, Telegraph journalist Luke Edwards said: “I’d say in the next 12 to 24 months he’s going to be one of the most coveted players in Europe like Erling Haaland was.
“Whether Liverpool can get him this summer, I don’t know. But this guy is 19 and he’s a key member of the England squad.
“He’s done really well out of that move to Borussia Dortmund. That was a really genius decision to go from Birmingham to Germany when a lot of English teams wanted him. He’s played every week and grown as a footballer. I think he’d be ideal for Liverpool and they do need midfielders.
“They are having a really bad start to the season. It’s no need to worry and panic after three games, but the midfield has looked like that area where there have been weaknesses.
“I can’t sit here and say it’s going to happen – but I’m really excited about the prospect.”
Many of the points raised here are difficult to dispute, and the 19-year-decision old’s to come to Germany has proven to be a wise one.
That will imply that he is in good hands for future transfer decisions as well, so Liverpool must make sure that they are well-positioned to tempt the England international to Anfield next summer.
If the Reds are to delay this purchase for another season, they must be completely sure that the former Birmingham City player is the solution, despite several requests for kloop judge Klopp to make a midfielder signing as soon as possible.
Liverpool fans will undoubtedly hear rumours regarding the youngster throughout the coming year, so let’s just hope that the generally held belief that he will join Anfield turns out to be true.
