Liverpool to lead Bellingham race next summer

Liverpool are expected to lead the race for the signature of Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham at the end of the current season, according to The Telegraph.

There was much talk about the Merseysiders’ need for a new midfielder this summer, but the club insisted otherwise until a heavy injury crisis hit them at the start of the season. The situation forced their hand and they completed a loan deal for Arthur Melo of Juventus, but with the futures of James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain beyond 2022/23 increasingly uncertain, the club are expected to invest heavily in their midfield ranks soon.

Bellingham is greatly admired at Anfield, as well as elsewhere. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp recently said that the only problem with signing the 19-year-old this year was the fact that he was not on the market.

However, Liverpool certainly won’t be the only club looking to take him away from the Signal Iduna Park when the time comes. Both Manchester clubs have been mentioned in that aspect, as have Real Madrid.
