Fabrizio tips Liverpool to compete with two PL rivals for ‘main target’ Jude Bellingham during January transfer.
Jude Bellingham, a midfielder for Borussia Dortmund, has been linked to Liverpool over the past few months.
The 19-year-old is a target for a number of European clubs at the end of this season and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has now claimed that the England international is Liverpool’s “main target”.
It would be intriguing to see if Liverpool and Dortmund can reach an agreement on a transfer in the upcoming months given that Liverpool has been following the player for quite some time.
Bellingham is regarded as a world-class player, and acquiring him would be a significant victory for the Reds. The 19-year-old would address Jurgen Klopp’s issues in the midfield.
Bellingham would be an improvement on both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita, who are due to leave the team at the end of the current campaign, therefore the Reds need a quality successor.
However, Romano notes that Chelsea and Manchester City will rival Liverpool for talent.
He asserts that the midfielder is worth €150 million, and it is uncertain whether Liverpool will be able to meet his demand.
He said to Give Me Sport: “Jude Bellingham is the main target. They know it’s not an easy race because Borussia Dortmund wants €150 million, so let’s see how it will all work out.
“But the price tag will be really important, and also there will be many clubs, including Man City, Chelsea, and Madrid fighting for Jude Bellingham.”
They would have to shatter their club transfer record in order to land the midfielder. Also, they are up against clubs that have significantly more resources compared to them.
It remains to be seen whether Liverpool can fend off the competition from their Premier League rivals and land the prodigious young talent in the summer.
