Liverpool submit offer for transfer target Jude Bellingham

Borussia Dortmund and England midfielder Jude Bellingham‘s stocks will certainly have increased after this world-class performance for The Three Lions in the World Cup. Liverpool reportedly match The Athletic’s expected valuation of the player of £131m.

Spanish outlet Defensa Central via Liverpool.com claim that the Reds have submitted an offer of the same value with £26m included in the same as add-ons. If this is true, Liverpool truly have a gem on their hands, and the core of the team is all but set for the future.

Bellingham has been in fine form this season, and in 32 appearances across competitions for both club and country, he has 10 goals and five assists. And having said that, Bellingham has the potential to improve an ageing Liverpool side with midfield problems in a few key ways.

At just 18 years old, he already has a wealth of experience playing at the professional level and has shown a strong ability to adapt to different roles and systems. This makes him a valuable asset to any team, and he could potentially provide a boost to Liverpool’s midfield by bringing in some fresh energy and ideas.

Bellingham to Liverpool?

Moreover, in an ageing side with midfield problems, a player like Bellingham could provide a much-needed injection of youth and athleticism, which could help to compensate for any decline in the performance of older players including the likes of James Milner and Jordan Henderson.

Having Harvey Elliott, Fabio Carvalho and Curtis Jones in the mix as well, the quartet could in all likelihood become first names for the Reds on the teamsheet, and hopefully, inspire the club to win more trophies.

Besides, Liverpool’s swiftness in action is to probably beat Real Madrid in the race to sign the player. Last year as well, the Reds lost out on signing Aurelien Tchouameni to Los Blancos and they would not want to let go of Bellingham this time around.

If they do, one can imagine the reaction from the fanbase. We have dreamt of Bellingham coming to Anfield for a while now and after the bromance between him, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Henderson at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, there is a feeling that he has one foot in Anfield already.
