Jude Bellingham stole the show once again for Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday evening, as the England international provided a goal and an assist in the club’s 2-1 victory over Turkish side Besiktas. 

The 18-year-old, who was playing in the Championship with Birmingham City two seasons ago, is now a regular for both Dortmund and England and looks set to be one of the biggest stars in the world for the foreseeable future.

Bellingham is one of a number of young English players to have moved to Germany in recent seasons, following the likes of Jadon Sancho, Reece Oxford, Reiss Nelson and Demarai Gray.

Now, however, it appears that Bellingham’s time in Germany could be coming to an end already.

Bellingham was part of England’s Euro 2020 squad

According to German outlet BILD, the Bundesliga side have set their asking price for the Englishman at offers over £80 million.

This will be an attractive price for interested parties, and the Daily Star are reporting that Liverpool are considering a move for the player in January.

The report suggests that Jurgen Klopp perceives Bellingham to be the ideal fit for Liverpool, possible considering him to be a replacement for Gini Wijnaldum who departed the club in the summer.

Bellingham has scored eight goals and provided six assists in 53 games for Dortmund so far, and was also part of the side that won the German Cup last season.

Manchester City and Manchester United have also both been linked with a potential move for the England international, who signed a five-year deal with Dortmund in 2020.

While Liverpool’s midfield is far from short of talent, the likes of Thiago and Jordan Henderson are seen by Klopp as different types of midfielder to Bellingham, and the youngster is therefore a target for the German.
