Borussia Dortmund first-team star linked with summer move to Liverpool

Liverpool could allegedly move for Borussia Dortmund youngster Jude Bellingham during this summer’s transfer market.

The 18-year-old midfielder has been in impressive form for Die Borussen during the 2021-22 season, making 41 appearances across all competitions, registering six goals and 13 assists so far.

Jude still has in excess of three years left to run on his present deal, but there is currently plenty of speculation surrounding his long-term future, with many of the world’s top clubs thought to be interested in signing him.

According to Goal, the Reds are planning to bring in a new player in the middle of the pitch during this summer’s transfer window and considered Bellingham as the perfect acquisition.

The report adds that the Ligue 1 club Monaco’s rising star Aurelien Tchouameni is also ‘admired’, as manager Jurgen Klopp looks to bolster his options for the 2022-23 season.

Bellingham is supposedly valued by BVB in the region of €100 million (£84 million), but a recent report stated that the Bundesliga club had no interest in selling the talent in the upcoming market.

The sensation has scored 10 goals and picked up 17 assists in 87 appearances for his team since arriving from Birmingham City in the summer of 2020.
