Report: Liverpool scouts were watching ‘exceptional’ player recently, after claims he’s keen on Anfield move
Bellingham has become one of the hottest properties in world football after making the switch to Germany from Birmingham City back in 2020.
The England international is seemingly high on the list of top clubs across Europe, including the likes of Real Madrid.
Journalist Rudy Galetti recently claimed that Bellingham would prefer a move to Merseyside over Madrid.
And Liverpool scouts were watching the ‘exceptional’ midfielder in action last Friday, but they were joined by another Premier League club.
Liverpool scouts watching Bellingham
90 Min reports that Liverpool and Manchester United watched Bellingham in action for Dortmund last week.
Bellingham started the match and played the entire 90 minutes. But his side fell to a 4-2 defeat against Borussia Monchengladbach.
Liverpool have struggled with injuries in midfield this season and seem to be one or two short in the position.
Jurgen Klopp’s options in the middle of the park include the likes of Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Thiago.
The Reds also have Harvey Elliott, who has been performing excellently this season. But Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have been plagued with injuries during their time at Anfield.
Bellingham would obviously be an excellent signing for Liverpool and would provide real class in the midfield for years to come.
But they will face stiff competition for his signature and it’s likely that Dortmund will demand a huge fee, with his price-tag reportedly set at £100 million.
The youngster has now headed off to the World Cup with England and if he performs well, his price could increase even further.
But Liverpool should push the boat out to try and bring Bellingham to Anfield, especially if he is keen on the move. It would be a statement of intent from the Reds and it would secure a top-class talent in their midfield who is still only 19-years-old.
