If the midfielder delays making a choice, Liverpool could sign Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund for “less than £100 million,” according to reports
Over the past year, the player has frequently been associated with the Premier League team.
Before this summer, it is known that they will be looking to add at least one new midfielder, with Bellingham thought to be their best choice. The England international, who is one of the finest young players in the world, is also attracting interest from Man City and Real Madrid.
The likelihood of Bellingham joining Liverpool is ‘increasingly improbable,’ according to David Ornstein of The Athletic. Liverpool’s prospects have been seriously questioned by the anticipated fee, the financial might of competing suitors, and their reluctance to engage in a bidding war at the anticipated level.
However, Liverpool is not anticipated to give up. According to Graeme Bailey, Bellingham’s prospects of remaining at Dortmund over the summer are “growing stronger and stronger.” According to Bailey, Bellingham’s “release clause will be less than £100m” if he delays until 2024, even though the 19-year-old is under contract until 2025.
According to the journalist, Bellingham would “open the door” for Liverpool to sign him if he decides to hold off on leaving Dortmund until 2024. Djibril Cisse, a star attacker for Liverpool, suggested that his old team “should go for” Bellingham and Chelsea’s Mason Mount.
