Bellingham hope, March fixtures & Anfield update – Latest LFC News

More positive reports on Liverpool’s pursuit of Jude Bellingham, news of several March fixture amendments and fresh images of the Anfield Road End all feature in today’s Liverpool news round up.


Anfield Bellingham’s “most likely” destination?

Liverpool are seen as “favourites” to sign Jude Bellingham ahead of Man City and Real Madrid, with talks already held with sporting director Julian Ward.

Tuesday evening brought further update from Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg over the pursuit of Bellingham ahead of the summer transfer window.

The German journalist explained his belief that there is “no chance Dortmund can keep him at this stage,” with Liverpool “favourites” after Jurgen Klopp made him his “No. 1 transfer target.”

Sky Sports’ chief reporter Kaveh Solhekol also described Liverpool as Bellingham’s “most likely destination.”

It was again denied that Klopp had already spoken with the 19-year-old, though Plettenberg explained that “conversations have been held with people like Julian Ward.”

Meanwhile, GOAL‘s Liverpool correspondent Neil Jones says “operation Bellingham” is still “very much alive” for Liverpool.

Fingers crossed!
