In a recent report, Sport Bild revealed that Liverpool are set to rival Real Madrid for Borussia Dortmund playmaker Jude Bellingham. It is believed that the Reds are keeping tabs on the English attacker ahead of a potential move in the future.
Bellingham’s Impressive Rise In German Football
Bellingham is having a great season at Signal Iduna Park where he has produced several eye-catching displays over the past ten months. The 18-year-old has scored six goals and grabbed 13 assists in 40 matches for the German outfit during this campaign on all fronts.
The former Birmingham City talent has given a good account of himself in the final third as he is averaging 1.6 tackles, 1.1 interceptions, 1.0 clearances, 1.4 shots, 1.2 key passes and 1.8 dribbles per 90 minutes in Bundesliga. He has even been tidy when distributing the ball in the opponent’s half after completing 83.9% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).
Is Bellingham A Dream Option For Liverpool?
Bellingham can do a little bit of everything at the centre of the park. He is a solid tackler of the ball and can time his challenges well to earn possession back for his side in midfield. Bellingham is primarily a central midfielder but can also play as a wide player on either flank if required.
The English sensation has got the vision to create some decent openings for his teammates on the attacking end of the field. Furthermore, he has also added plenty of goals to his game and is usually a composed player on the ball when traveling with it in the opposition half.
Bellingham can also make some intelligent runs with the ball from midfield. A player of his skill set will be an excellent addition to Liverpool‘s match-day squad as he is already good enough to become a regular starter at Anfield.
We can expect Bellingham to add a lot of quality to Jurgen Klopp‘s midfield. Plus, he could help the Reds challenge for some major trophies over the next few years. With all things considered, Bellingham will be a dream option for the Merseyside outfit to consider during the summer transfer window.
