Fabrizio Romano says Jude Bellingham is Liverpool's 'main target' in 2023
That’s according to Fabrizio Romano, who revealed this week that the young Englishman remains Jurgen Klopp’s main transfer target in the next two windows.
Fabrizio Romano says Jude Bellingham is Liverpool’s ‘main target’ in 2023
Bellingham has been a star in Germany ever since he moved to Dortmund.
The 19-year-old has been exceptional this season as well, scoring nine goals and providing three assists in 22 appearances. That is a phenomenal return for a central midfielder, and it’s only a matter of time before he moves on to a bigger club.
Romano has revealed the latest on Bellingham. He claims that Dortmund have slapped a £130.8 million price tag on their star youngster, but Liverpool still remain keen.
The journalist told GiveMeSport: “Jude Bellingham is the main target (for Liverpool).
“They know it’s not an easy race because Borussia Dortmund want €150 million (£130.8m), so let’s see how it will all work out. But the price tag will be really important.
“Also there will be many clubs, including Man City, Chelsea and (Real) Madrid fighting for Jude Bellingham.”
Liverpool need a world-class midfielder and Bellingham would be a perfect fit for them.
The £49,000-a-week (Salary Sport) Englishman, who will be playing a big part in the World Cup for Gareth Southgate’s side, has everything. He’s a complete midfielder, and he’ll instantly improve what Liverpool have in the middle of the park at the moment.
However, the Reds, like most other interested clubs, will have to smash their transfer record to sign Bellingham. The competition for his signature will be big, which makes things difficult for Klopp and co.
It will be interesting to see how this pans out. If Bellingham has a sensational World Cup, his price tag could go up even more.
