(VIDEO) Watch: Jurgen Klopp responds to Jude Bellingham move and reveals Liverpool’s January transfer plans
Jurgen Klopp smiled when he was asked about the prospect of signing Jude Bellingham in January and claimed he’s the ‘wrong person to ask’.
The Borussia Dortmund youngster is believed to be the Reds’ top transfer target but any potential deal is likely to be struck at the end of the season.
The 19-year-old impressed for England at the World Cup , which only increased interest in his services from other clubs – with Real Madrid, Manchester City, and Manchester United reportedly joining the Reds in showing interest in his signature.
Klopp didn’t give much away, however, and claimed his side ‘are probably looking’ to make signings but will have to wait and see.
Pressed for comment on the likelihood of a move for the 19-year-old in the next few weeks, Klopp laughed as he replied: “In January? I’m the wrong person to answer that, you will have to ask other people about that.”
He went on to add: “January, in our situation, is a window from a sports side we are always prepared, it’s always clear what kind of ideas we have or how the necessity is from our point of view.
“All the rest doesn’t lie 100 per cent in our hands and we always work with what we’ve got, and that will not change. You can imagine the situation we are in that we are probably looking. If something happens, we will see.”
Bellingham has also recently discussed his ambitions as speculation over his next move continues, with the Dortmund midfielder revealing: “I want to win way more, and I want to continue to push the boundaries of my own potential and talent.”
