A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent interview with Give Me Sport, CBS reporter Ben Jacobs claimed that Liverpool are leading the race to land Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham. Jacobs said,

“At the moment, I think Liverpool are the frontrunners for Jude Bellingham.

“Real Madrid have put in a lot of legwork as well and I think both of those two clubs have confidence.

“But the difference between the two is that Liverpool perhaps are prepared to pay a bit more than Real Madrid.”

Bellingham’s Impressive Form At Signal Iduna Park This Season

Bellingham is enjoying another outstanding campaign with the German club after putting in a series of influential performances at the heart of their midfield. The England international has proven his worth by scoring nine goals and picking up three assists in 22 appearances for Dortmund this season in all competitions.

The talented teenager has been a consistent performer for his current club in the middle of the park based on his average of 3.2 tackles, 1.4 interceptions, 1.1 clearances, 2.1 shots, 1.0 key passes and 2.0 dribbles per game in Bundesliga. He has even been tidy when interchanging possession with his teammates from midfield, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 82.5% in the top tier of German football (stats via whoscored).

Is Bellingham A Dream Choice For Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp?

Bellingham is a good tackler of the ball and can sense the danger well to secure the ball back for his side at the centre of the park. He doesn’t hesitate to clear his lines when the opposition are on the front foot and can also create some decent openings for his teammates in the final third. The English sensation can strike the ball with power and precision from long range and can also complete some dangerous dribbles in the opponent’s half.

Bellingham mainly functions as a central midfielder but can also play as a winger on either flank if needed. Hence, he is well-equipped to make an instant impact at Anfield if Liverpool can find a way to bring him on board next summer. At 19, the English midfield ace has the potential to become a generational talent in the future.

We can expect Bellingham to add more quality to Jurgen Klopp‘s midfield department. He has what it takes to help the Reds challenge for even more silverware over the next decade which makes him a dream choice for Liverpool to focus on at the end of this campaign.
