Liverpool recieve transfer boost as Reliable journalist shares what he’s heard from Bellingham camp amid strong Liverpool links
Jude Bellingham is in line to join Liverpool in the summer, but the team’s recent on-field struggles are causing the midfielder to “hesitate” about fully committing to his next possible team.
The Reds will have to beat off Real Madrid and Manchester City for the player, according to Sport1 chief reporter Patrick Berger (through GOAL in the Die Dortmund-Woche podcast).
According to reports, the’scary’ Englishman has already rejected Chelsea and PSG, as Jermain Jenas put it during the BBC’s live coverage of the World Cup. It appears Jurgen Klopp’s team may follow suit if they are unable to reverse their troubling slide in the English top-flight.
We’ve seen ourselves in this bleak of a position before when injuries decimated our available defensive options back in 2020/21, though it’s worth noting that we are failing to grasp even our most basic of principles with the remaining options.
The return of Virgil van Dijk, not to mention Diogo Jota, will hopefully restore some much-needed leadership in the coming weeks but we also need to quickly rediscover one (or, preferably, both) of our cutting-edge up front or defensive solidity at the back.
To have come this far in the chase for Bellingham’s signature, it would not be putting it dramatically to suggest it would be disastrous to miss out on the generational talent this summer owing to issues entirely of our own making.
