Jude Bellingham did little to deter interest from other clubs with his performance on Wednesday evening, as the midfielder scored in Borussia Dortmund’s 4-1 victory over Sevilla. 

The Englishman scored Dortmund’s second goal as they cruised to an easy win over the Spanish side in group g of the Champions League.

The former Birmingham City man has already been heavily linked a number of clubs ahead of next summer’s transfer window, with Liverpool and Chelsea rumoured to be among those interested in the player.

Bellingham has cemented himself as one of the Bundesliga’s standout players over the past two seasons, having joined Dortmund from The Blues back in 2020.

The England international was heavily linked with a move away from Dortmund during the recent window, but his current employers were unwilling to let both him and Erling Haaland leave at the same time.

Now, it appears that The Reds have already lined up a plan b if they fail in their pursuit of Bellingham next summer, and it is a former Chelsea academy star that they are interested in.

Bellingham is a top target for Liverpool next summer

As reported by The Mirror, Liverpool could move for Bayern Munich’s Jamal Musiala if they fail to land Bellingham.

Musiala, 19, is another young talent who made the move from England to Germany when he joined Bayern from Chelsea in 2019.

Since then, he has become a regular for the Bundesliga champions, scoring 22 goals and registering 13 assists in 90 games for the club.

The midfielder, who opted to represent Germany internationally despite having played for England at youth level, has scored seven goals and provided six assists in 12 games across all competitions so far this season.

According to the report, Liverpool could move for the teenager, who can play as an attacking midfielder or out wide.

While Liverpool are just one of a number of club keeping tabs on the ex-Cobham star, it is understood that he is unlikely to leave The Allianz Arena in the near future.

The player is also contracted to the German champions until 2026, meaning that they are under very little pressure to sell.

Liverpool spent much of the summer searching for a midfielder but ultimately failed to land any of their primary targets, with a loan deal for Arthur Melo the only signing that they made in midfield.
