Jude Bellingham to Liverpool is a chunk of speculation that continues to grow.

Liverpool are reportedly favourites to sign the 19-year-old Borussia Dortmund sensation who continues to enhance his reputation.

Last week, the England international scored away to Manchester City in a Champions League defeat for the Bundesliga outfit.

According to reliable journalist James Pearce, who exclusively covers the Reds, the Anfield outfit will firm up their interest in Bellingham ahead of a 2023 transfer.

Everybody has been singing his praises in recent weeks and that includes Micah Richards.

Writing for The Daily Mail, the Sky Sports pundit gushed over the youngster’s ability and, more importantly, how much better he’s going to become.

Richards said: “I still have to do a double-take when I look at his age. He is 19 and running midfields in games of the highest standards. There is no ‘could be’ about it — Jude Bellingham is already unbelievable and he is going to be at the heart of this England team for years to come, and I can’t wait to see his progress.

“I can understand why Liverpool were so heavily linked with him this summer and why Jurgen Klopp reportedly is a huge admirer — there will no doubt be huge interest in every transfer window from now on.”

Bellingham, who earns £49,000 per week in Germany, is bound to get inundated with massive offers between now and the 2023 summer transfer window.

Speculation is likely to continue to rise until January – particularly if he impresses during the World Cup – but one thing is for sure, this is someone who’s going to cost an absolute fortune and if Liverpool are genuinely interested, they better be ready to smash their club record transfer fee.
