“We need to sign Jude Bellingham” – Liverpool star makes liverpool transfer claim for an interesting reason
The Portuguese international, who does live streams on Twitch while playing the FIFA video game, claimed his stream on Sunday evening.
Bellingham’s rise to prominence has seen him gain massive attention from several European elites teams, including the reds.
Reports also suggest the Liverpool side are monitoring the former Birmingham star.
However, they’re aware that making a bid and pricing him away from Signal Iduna Park won’t be cheap and easy, as he’s highly sought-after.
The England international signed for BVB from Birmingham City in 2020 for €23 million. Bellingham’s current market value (as per Trasnfermarkt) is €75 million.
Jota came onto the same topic during a live stream over the weekend. He said that he’d talk to Liverpool about Bellingham’s transfer so that he can use the Englishman in his FIFA Ultimate Team. Jota said:
“On Tuesday, I’m going to say, ‘we need to sign Bellingham’, so I can use his Future Stars card.”
The ‘Future Stars’ Jota referred to is a promotional event in the Ultimate Team section of FIFA. That is given to some of the best young talents in the game, such as Bellingham.
According to Football Insider,Liverpool are preparing a big swoop for Jude Bellingham this summer. They’re looking to bolster their options in central midfield, and the Dortmund starlet is on their radar.
The report also says that a source in Germany said “we’re worried about Liverpool” and their efforts to lure the youngster away to Anfield. Dortmund are looking to fight off potential bids by roping in Bellingham’s 16-year-old brother Jobe from Birmingham City, which could convince Jude to stay.
Dortmund fears Liverpool’s interest in Jude Bellingham will translate into a summer transfer bid. Borussia Dortmund are now pushing ahead with negotiations over a new deal with the young Englishman despite his current contract ending in 2025.
Bellingham signed a contract extension with Dortmund last year that would keep him at the club till 2025. The teenager has been on a fine run of form, scoring four goals and making ten assists across competitions this season.
Overall, the midfielder has made 75 appearances for Dortmund since his 2020 transfer, contributing 22 goals.
