Sky Sports reporter provides major transfer update on Jude Bellingham that Liverpool fans will want to hear
During the group stage of the Europa League, Zubimendi played United twice. According to rumors, manager Erik ten Hag is a huge fan and may lobby the team to sign him.
The Spaniard’s primary position is defensive midfielder. This season, he has made an average of two tackles per league game while dominating more than 70% of his aerial contests.
His distribution has been around average, with an accuracy rate of 85%, but his greatest strength has been his persistent work ethic throughout the course of 90 minutes.
Casemiro’s competition against Zubimendi for the number six spot in the upcoming season may be fierce. The pair might also be seen collaborating in midfield.
The club anticipates Scott McTominay’s departure in the summer.
Plettenberg said: “BVB are chanceless at this stage to keep him but he has a contract without a release clause so the price tag is very, very high. Dortmund want between €100m-€150m,” before going on to mention more about the interested clubs.
The German reporter continued by saying that Liverpool, Man Cty and Real Madrid are all in the race for the England international and that the midfielder is the Reds’ number one target.
Jurgen Klopp is yet to speak to Jude Bellingham personally says the Sky Sports reporter but the likes of Julian Ward have had conversations with the midfielder.
Klopp is “pushing, pushing, pushing” though and has made it clear that he wants Bellingham above everyone else.
“Liverpool and Bellingham is hot but they have to make clear right now who is paying the money,” Plettenburg finished off with.
The Sky Sports Germany reporter’s update suggests that Liverpool are in the lead of the race for Bellingham and that they are doing everything they can to bring him to Anfield for next season.
