The 19-year old is one of the hottest prospects in world football.
Liverpool have been given a boost in their pursuit of Jude Bellingham. The 19-year-old is one of the hottest prospects in world football and after his opening performance against Iran clubs will know they will have a fight on their hands to land the star’s signature.
Highly respected ex-pro and current football pundit Jan Ange Fjørtoft ‘s post on Twitter has given Liverpool fans hope that Bellingham coming to Merseyside could be a real possibility.
Re: Jude Bellingham
Dortmund- boss Watzke doesn’t want to sell him to “those kind of clubs”. Meaning “state-clubs”.
His mate Klopp is at Liverpool. But Team Bellingham will make their own analysis

Klopp’s relationship with Dortmund’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke could prove vital for Liverpool. Watzke and Klopp have a strong relationship. Indeed Watzke lamented Klopp’s departure and mentioned that he thought about it for a long time after.
Dortmund CEO, Watzke on Klopp: “When Klopp left it hurt for weeks. Sometimes when I am on training camps, I go to my room late and sit on my terrace and think of the times when I used to hear Klopp laugh and everything was fine.”

It is believed that the fee for Jude Bellingham will be in excess of £100M. FSG, should they still own the club next summer, will have to pay a club record fee to sign Bellingham.
