Liverpool learn asking price for Jude Bellingham



Liverpool have learnt how much they would have to pay to sign Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund.

Liverpool currently have a wealth of central midfield options on their books.

Fabinho and Thiago are nailed-on starters in Jurgen Klopp’s midfield trio, whilst the remaining spot can be filled by Naby Keita, Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott at present.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remains on Liverpool’s books, though his future does look to be away from Merseyside given how little playing time he has seen of late.

And whilst all of those above options are great for now, James Milner, Jordan Henderson and Thiago are all north of 30, meaning Liverpool probably need to start planning for the future.

The two main names linked with Liverpool of late have been Aurelien Tchouameni and Jude Bellingham. However, the former of that duo has since joined Real Madrid, leaving Bellingham as the only option.

Now, the Reds have learnt how much it would cost to pry Bellingham away from Signal Iduna Park.

And not too surprisingly, BVB are demanding a hefty sum for the 19-year-old, with a €120m fee touted by Sport Bild:


Given Liverpool have already spent big on Darwin Nunez this summer and Dortmund have already signed one major star in the form of Erling Haaland, it seems unlikely Bellingham will be on the move this summer, regardless of price.
