Liverpool wants to go all-in at Bellingham - BVB want a record sum

Liverpool FC are said to be ready to pay a record sum for a transfer from Dortmund's Jude Bellingham. BVB wants to make the Englishman the most expensive departure in Bundesliga history.

According to information from the Bild newspaper, Jürgen Klopp and club owner Mike Gordon have agreed to dig deeper into their pockets for Bellingham than ever before in Liverpool history. The Reds are said to be ready to invest €100m for the 19-year-old.

The background is the sporting misery of the LFC, which those responsible also attribute to a lack of quality in the midfield center. Currently, the Klopp team is only ninth in the Premier League table. With Thiago (31 years old), Fabinho (29), Jordan Henderson (32) and James Milner (36), there are several players in the squad who may have already passed their peak.

Although the English seem determined to bring Bellingham to Anfield, a transfer is far from certain. At BVB, the chances of the youngster staying are getting smaller and smaller. However, the black and yellow want to be compensated in the event of a departure.

According to Bild, the decision-makers are aiming for a transfer fee of 150 million euros. This would make Bellingham the most expensive sale in Bundesliga history and would leave Ousmane Dembélé behind, who switched to FC Barcelona in 2018 for around 140 million.

The future will have to show whether the Reds will accept this Dortmund demand. The same applies to the question of whether Jürgen Klopp can assert himself against the financial strength of Manchester City, Real Madrid or Chelsea FC. Similarly potent clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United or Arsenal FC are meanwhile considered to be outsiders in the Bellingham race.
