Liverpool ‘willing to break transfer record’ and complete signing of £103M man
Liverpool are ‘willing to break their transfer record’ to land Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham – Dean Jones has claimed
Bellingham was the subject of interest from Liverpool in the summer transfer window, but Dortmund made it clear they wouldn’t entertain any sale for one of their most impressive performers
However – it is widely believed that all the big clubs will be eyeing up a possible deal for Bellingham during the January window – rather than getting into a big time summer battle next summer
Now, if you believe the words of Dean Jones – LiverpoolFC are ready to break their club record in order to complete the signing of Bellingham in the coming transfer windows
What has been said?
Jones told GIVEMESPORT: “I think they would be willing to break their transfer record to sign Bellingham.
“That would only mean getting to about £80million, so it’s probably going to happen soon anyway given the way prices are.”
Former England international Own Hargreaves recently discussed why he is “one of a kind” as top European clubs will battle it out for the 19-year-old next summer.
“He can go wherever he wants,” said Hargreaves on BT Sport.
“You see now the young French boys they went to Real Madrid, that’s where everyone wants to go Real Madrid or Barcelona because everyone wants to play with attacking football. This kid is one of a kind.
“Everyone’s going to want him, Chelsea, Man United, Liverpool. He’s got to decide.
“To turn around a club like Manchester United and get them back to the top, I think he could carry that burden. I think the young man – he’s not a defensive midfielder [or] a 10, he’s just between in an eight.
“He’s smart, his weight of pass is good. His greatest attribute is his mentality, he loves football, he cares, got big shoulders, he’s the perfect midfield player.”
LiverpoolFC really missed out on the signing of Bellingham in the summer – he would have been a world class signing for the club – especially as they are dealing with some serious issues
But the fact he wants to come to the Premier League suggests that Liverpool are leading the chase – he would be worth all the money
