Italian transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio has claimed that ‘Liverpool is a dream destination for Bellingham’.
Recent reports, substantiated by Di Marzio, that Bellingham’s family have taken the lead in negotiations have added to the excitement about the possibility of Bellingham arriving to Merseyside. This is due to the fact that many reports have stated that Bellingham’s family are keen on him joining Liverpool.
The 19-year-old is one of the most sought after players in world football. His World Cup performances have heightened the debate around his future.
Di Marzio has gone as far to say that Bellingham dreams of playing for Liverpool.
Speaking to Dutch football website SoccerNews.NL Di Marzio stated:
‘Liverpool would be a good choice for him, as Jürgen Klopp is a great coach for any player making the move from Borussia Dortmund to Anfield. Klopp knows the Bundesliga like the back of his hand and would be the perfect manager to squeeze everything out of Bellingham. In addition, Liverpool need a player like Bellingham, but it will be difficult to come to a deal because of the price tag.
This will be a summer deal anyway. Recently he exchanged his old agent for a new one, but that has nothing to do with negotiations. His parents are now responsible for the conversations, but I don’t think anything is going to happen in January. If you ask me, Liverpool is a dream destination for Bellingham and Manchester United seem to have dropped out. The price tag is 100 to 130 million euros.’
With recent reports that Liverpool could soon receive substantial investment Liverpool fans will hope the price tag for Bellingham is no longer inconceivable.
Borussia Dortmund’s Managing Director Carsten Cramer spoke to @VietnamNewsVNS on Jude Bellingham potentially joining Liverpool. He spoke about his relationship with Jurgen Klopp. “We both care for Dortmund, we have a high sympathy for sure. We are still in a good relationship with Jurgen, and many others at Liverpool, for me it is my preferred club in the EPL as well. But don’t expect that we will make gifts to Liverpool.”
