Dortmund now want to sign Bellingham’s brother Jobe, who is also in the Birmingham City ranks – just like Jude was before his move to Germany.

16-year-old winger Bellingham has hit three goals in five Under-18 Premier League games this season, Wirth Dortmund now keen.

Jude and mother Denise moved to Germany, and they would love Jobe to follow suit – which could prevent Liverpool from striking a deal.

Pedri, Florian Wirtz, Eduardo Camavinga… Bellingham is right with them.

The 18-year-old has been ridiculous this season, already boasting thee goals and six assists in 14 outings for Dortmund.

Bellingham has so much skill to go with a great frame, pace and energy through the middle of the park.

You can easily see how Bellingham would fit into the Liverpool system, offering thrust from the middle of the park.

£101million would be a club-record deal, but Bellingham could be Liverpool’s driving force for at least 10 years – and if there is a window of opportunity, the Reds should take it.
