'Liverpool are in a strong position': Journalist suggests 'incredible' World Cup star wants Anfield over PSG
Speculation linking Liverpool to Jude Bellingham has intensified in recent days.
On Wednesday, Christian Falk claimed that the Reds were closing in on the Borussia Dortmund star.
SportBILD’s head of football took to Twitter with a post saying Liverpool were now favourites for Bellingham.
Bellingham has long been deemed one of the best young players in the world.
And he’s now making even more of a name for himself at the World Cup.
The ‘unbelievable‘ 19-year-old has been one of England’s best players as they reached the quarter-finals of the competition with relative ease.
Meanwhile, Liverpool will need to revamp their midfield next year due to ageing and/or out-of-contract players.
And Bellingham, who has been registering ‘incredible‘ numbers, would no doubt be one of the best possible options for the Reds.
‘A lot of legwork’
CBS Sport journalist Ben Jacobs has now provided an in-depth update about the Bellingham state of play.
In a Twitter thread, he spoke about how and why Liverpool are ahead in the race, but competition remains.
One point that Reds fans will be especially happy about pertains to how Bellingham reportedly doesn’t fancy a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
As one of the richest clubs in the world, PSG pose considerable threat when it comes to elite players.
However, Jacobs doesn’t believe this will be a concern for Liverpool and other suitors.
A thread full of optimism for Liverpool fans, who’d no doubt be buzzing if Bellingham joins.
At just 19, he’s holding his own with the very best in the world.
His ceiling is incredibly high, and he really can go on to become a superstar.
