'True': £130m player's family want him to join Liverpool, they're in advanced talks - journalist

Jude Bellingham is now in advanced talks over a move to Liverpool after starring for England at the World Cup.

Journalist Christian Falk has tweeted the latest on Bellingham’s transfer situation as he gears up to face France on Saturday.

It has long been known there will be an almighty transfer battle to sign the Borussia Dortmund central midfielder when he decides to move.

Falk says that Liverpool are ahead of European champions Real Madrid in that particular chase and that Bellingham’s family want him to move there.

Bellingham in most advanced talks with Liverpool

It has been noticeable that Bellingham has been close with Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold during the tournament in Qatar.

Of course, this England squad is all close with each other, so too much cannot be read into that and Bellingham is going to make his huge decision based on more than just friendships.

But he clearly admirers the intensity and quality of Henderson, who he combined with to lay on England’s opening goal against Senegal on Sunday night.

Bellingham’s family will have been preparing for the big move for a long while now, as he plots a huge transfer in a career where he looks mapped out to be a star.

Falk says that designs are on a summer move and it did always seem very unlikely that Bellingham would make a move mid-season.

He has been rated at £130 million, and it is likely Liverpool cannot afford that without a takeover going through between now and the summer – but that is perhaps another thing to watch out for.
