“We will sign him” – Watch Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool board agree to go all out to beat Chelsea & Man City to potential £129m transfer for superstar
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and the Reds board have reportedly agreed and are keen to go all out for the ambitious transfer of Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham next summer.
After some stunning form in the Bundesliga, the England international is currently one of the most intriguing young prospects in world football, and it seems likely that he’ll soon transfer to one of Europe’s best for large money.
According to Sport Bild’s most recent report, Bellingham will be a top priority for Liverpool to buy next summer, even though additional information from the Mail indicates that he might cost as much as £129 million.
Given that LFC will undoubtedly compete with clubs like Chelsea and Manchester City for Bellingham’s services, as Fabrizio Romano recently detailed in his exclusive CaughtOffside piece, it will be difficult for LFC to complete this signing.
Liverpool, who doesn’t frequently blow the money in the transfer market, will likely have less money to spend than Chelsea and City.
But as they have previously shown a willingness to do with the acquisitions of Virgil van Dijk and Alisson, it’s possible that they’ll make an exception specifically for Bellingham.
After a disappointing season, Bellingham appears to be the perfect fit for Liverpool.
However, with N’Golo Kante and Jorginho’s contracts expiring at the end of the current campaign, Chelsea may also find themselves lacking in midfielders.
However, City will undoubtedly be enticing for the 19-year-old as well because it would provide the opportunity to work with Pep Guardiola, a proven winner, as well as reunite with Erling Haaland.
