According to Fabrizio Romano, the 19-year-old England superstar Jude Bellingham is on verge of joining Liverpool FC.
The Reds are in desperate need of a creative midfielder as their top 4 spot is at stake. This could be a key factor for LFC to reach the elite half of the table after a disappointing start to the season.
Jude’s impressive performance at World Cup has drawn a lot of attention from other clubs but no one can deny Klopp’s ability to turn players into legends. The German head coach is known for his ability to turn things around at a crucial time.
Fabrizio: LFC is “really pushing” for Bellingham
Romano is one of the most reliable journalists in the sports industry. He claims the interest for Bellingham is real from the Merseyside giants. Though Man City, Chelsea, and Real Madrid are still in the race. But the player admires Klopp and it seems like Liverpool are already preparing for something big in the January transfer window.
Meanwhile, the growing bromance between Jordan Henderson and Jude keeps LFC fans intact for their possible future partnership in the red half of Merseyside.
German journalist on Jude Bellingham transfer saga
Christian Falk on BvB’s star transfer story:
“About £130m is the benchmark. If Bellingham – and we heard he’s very convinced to go to Liverpool – he’s convinced about Jurgen Klopp,”
“But at the end, he’s got a contract at Dortmund and Dortmund won’t say ‘yeah we know Jurgen very well and he’s a very nice guy, that’s why you’re getting him £20m cheaper and we don’t take the offer of Real Madrid, Chelsea, or city’ so no that won’t work.”
This addition could really reignite Liverpool FC. A fresh blood injection could really help the Merseyside giants to turn into title contenders.
Bellingham could be a perfect fit as he suits Klopp’s philosophy of geganpressing. The most unique trait of the English star boy is his vision. He is one of the top assist providers for Borussia Dortmund. Jude also attempts most attacking dribbles both inside and outside the box which is necessary for a counter-pressing team.
The key factor of this transfer is his £130M transfer fee. Will Klopp and Liverpool move forward to make this deal happen and bring the wonderkid to Anfield or the story has an anti-climax behind it?
