Reds to go “all in on Bellingham” as goalkeeper is linked – Latest Liverpool FC News

In today’s Liverpool news round up, the Reds are again at the centre of transfer speculation surrounding Jude Bellingham, and have also been linked with a goalkeeper in Germany.


“All in on Bellingham” – But will it be enough?

The morning after the Reds’ encouraging win over Napoli, Liverpool fans on social media were talking about Jude Bellingham… again.

German outlet SportBild have reported that Jurgen Klopp and director Mike Gordon have agreed to “attack Bellingham properly” as the “face of the future” for the club.

They state that the Reds have made €100 million (£86m) “available” for their pursuit, but that is €50 million (£43m) short of what is said to be a realistic figure for Dortmund (£129 million).

Not quite all in as the report suggests, then.

Sky Sports’ Melissa Reddy has said Liverpool have “put in the heaviest work over a long period behind the scenes to pierce the player’s decision-making process.”

While ex-Norway striker and European football journalist Jan Aage Fjortoft says there is one club “working very hard behind the scenes” to make a deal happen.

Liverpool? Chelsea? City? Real Madrid? Your guess is as good as ours.

However, if the Reds really do have aspirations to get their man, surely they must at least secure a top four finish this season?
