The reliable Patrick Berger of Sport1 in Germany has confirmed that Liverpool are leading the race to sign Jude Bellingham.
It feels like one of the longest transfer stories in history but Liverpool fans will hope it will be worth the wait.
The Sport1 football journalist was speaking to RedmenTV YouTube channel.
“Liverpool is very, very interesting for him but we need to see where the development of Liverpool is going. He is able to play the gegenpressing system of Jurgen Klopp. It would be the perfect fit. Liverpool are the front runners, they are in pole position. They are also the main target for Jude. They are clubs like City and Real Madrid interested. He turned down proposals for Chelsea and PSG for the summer”, he told the fan channel.
However, Berger is not convinced that Bellingham will join Liverpool without Champions League football.
“For me personally I can’t imagine Jude playing one year with a team not in the Champions League.”
