LFC Transfer News: Liverpool’s Jude Bellingham pursuit could depend on two factors
It is said that first, the transfer fee of the player coupled with the fact that how Liverpool progressed in the second half of the season after a disappointing start, will determine how far the interest from both sides will progress.
It is widely speculated that Liverpool are willing to go all-in to sign Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund in the coming summer transfer window, having made the England midfielder their primary target.
At the same time, it is also known that we face competition from many top clubs including direct rivals Manchester United for the player’s signing.
Bellingham certainly would have the option of choosing from the varied interests of top clubs and hence it is definitely not an easy race come summer to sign the player if he decides to leave Germany.
The Stourbridge-born midfielder who first rose to prominence as a 17-year-old at Birmingham City has gone leaps and bounds since his move to Borussia Dortmund.
Such has been his growth, development and performances over the performances, Bellingham has managed to captain his club at a UEFA Champions League signifying the importance of the midfielder in the team.
Adding to that, not many expected Bellingham to start in England’s first FIFA World Cup game against Iran and not only did he do so but also performed brilliantly on his debut at the tournament and capped it off with a beautifully headed goal.
With the manner in which he has performed for the club until the World Cup and now taking up the responsibility of being a key member in leading his nation to its long wait for World Cup glory, his stock is only going to rise up.
