Prior to the 2023–24 season, Liverpool are set to make transfer for Jude Bellingham top priority.
The Premier League’s powerhouses are reportedly squabbling with Real Madrid this summer to sign the England international.
The 19-year-old played a crucial role in England’s run to the 2022 World Cup quarter finals and his transfer value has now risen to around €150m at the Bundesliga side.
Dortmund Sporting Director Sebastian Kehl previously hinted the club are under no pressure to sell but they are preparing for a bidding war in June.
Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard even claimed he would fly to Germany to convince Jude Bellingham over a switch to Anfield and Jurgen Klopp remains confident on the situation.
According to reports from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, as part of his Daily Briefing with Caught Offside, Klopp will receive a sizeable transfer war chest this summer with Bellingham the key.
“Liverpool want to support Klopp this summer with the new signings”, he said.
“Bellingham is the top priority, but there’s a chance they go for one more midfielder because of Keita, Milner and Oxlade-Chamberlain’s contract situations.”
