Paul Merson believes Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham would be an excellent signing for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool this summer.

The Reds arguably have the best defence in the Premier League, while their attack, despite the departure of Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich, is still extremely dangerous.

If you had to pinpoint a weak spot in Liverpool’s lineup, it’s their midfield. Don’t get us wrong, a trio of Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara is still a great partnership, but if there’s an area of the pitch that can be improved, its the middle of the park.

Merson believes Liverpool lack energy in central midfield and are crying out for someone to come in and change that. He thinks Bellingham is the man.

Paul Merson urges Liverpool to sign Jude Bellingham

In his column on Sportskeeda, Merson wrote: “I think Liverpool are crying out for a midfield player. I don’t think their midfield is strong enough.

“Jude Bellingham is a good player, and I think he would be a great signing.

“Liverpool are currently relying solely on their full-backs for energy. Thiago’s not a box-to-box midfielder, and Jordan Henderson is another year older.

“They need legs in midfield, and Jude Bellingham could be that box-to-box presence for the side.”

This isn’t the first time someone has urged Liverpool to go and sign Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund.

The teenager is arguably the best player of his age in the world. He has been absolutely brilliant for BVB since he joined them, while he has impressed in an England shirt as well.

If Liverpool can get Bellingham this summer, they should. However, the Reds have already splashed £64 million on Nunez in this window, and reports have led us to believe that Dortmund will not let their star midfielder leave for anything under £100 million.

That makes a deal unlikely this summer, but stranger things have happened in football, and you can’t really rule anything out until the window is shut.
