Liverpool are increasingly confident of signing Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham this summer, but the 17-year-old will only join the Reds if a huge condition is met.
The England international has been linked with a move to Anfield for some time, with reports suggesting that the Reds are keen to bring him to Merseyside.
And now, according to reports, Liverpool are increasingly confident of signing Bellingham this summer, but the youngster will only join the club if a huge condition is met.
The condition in question is that Bellingham will only join Liverpool if he is guaranteed regular first-team football. The midfielder is keen to play regular football and is not interested in joining a club where he will be a bit-part player.
Bellingham has been a regular for Dortmund this season, making 28 appearances in all competitions and scoring four goals. He has also been a regular for England at youth level, making his senior debut in November 2020.
The midfielder is highly rated and has been linked with a number of top clubs, including Manchester United, Chelsea and Bayern Munich.
However, it appears that Liverpool are in pole position to sign the youngster, with reports suggesting that the Reds are willing to meet Dortmund’s asking price of £30 million.
If Liverpool can guarantee Bellingham regular first-team football, then it appears that the Reds could be set to land one of the most exciting young talents in Europe.
The Reds have already signed Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig this summer and are also reportedly close to signing Ibrahima Konate’s teammate, Dayot Upamecano.
If Liverpool can sign Bellingham, then it would be a huge coup for the club and would add even more quality to their already impressive squad.
The Reds are currently top of the Premier League and are on course to win their first league title since 1990. With Bellingham in their ranks, they could be even more formidable next season.
