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.

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.

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.
