Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are firing on all cylinders again in the 2021/22 season. 

After winning their first top-flight title in 30 years, the Reds were struck down with injuries last term which had a huge impact on their ability to defend their crown.

But with players now having returned to fitness, especially Virgil van Dijk, the Anfield club are looking the ruthless side of old once again.

Sunday’s 5-0 thrashing of rivals Manchester United saw them stay just a point adrift of Chelsea at the top of the table and extended their unbeaten run to 23 games in all competitions.

Despite free-flowing performances and having a number of options to choose from in each position, Liverpool are reportedly keen on signing a young Englishman making waves abroad.

Jude Bellingham has been hitting the headlines since making his professional debut for Birmingham City at the age of 16 and, following a big transfer to Borussia Dortmund in 2020, the midfielder has taken his game to a whole new level.

Bellingham has become a Dortmund regular.

According to The Sun, Liverpool have the 18-year-old, who’s scored seven times in 61 appearances for the German side, on their shopping list for next summer’s transfer window.

It’s claimed the Merseyside outfit are still on the hunt for a midfielder to replace Georginio Wijnaldum, who left on a free transfer to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

Now an England international who’s playing regular Bundesliga and Champions League football, it will be interesting to see that, if offered the chance, would Bellingham be keen to continue his development in the Bundesliga or view a return to England as his next step?
