Liverpool backed to 'easily' sign Jude Bellingham after 'massive' £103m update - pundit

Liverpool could “easily” sign Jude Bellingham next summer after an update on his Borussia Dortmund future.

That’s according to former Leeds United stopper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about Bellingham’s chances of moving to Anfield.

According to German outlet Sport Bild (29 June) Borussia Dortmund have put a price tag of around £103million on the 19-year-old.

The Mirror reported (16 June) that Liverpool will hold off on a move for the teenager until next summer as opposed to in the current window.

Kenny can see Liverpool splashing out on Bellingham in a similar fashion to the signing of Virgil van Dijk, Alisson and Darwin Nunez.

“He has been rumoured to be going to Liverpool for a while now,” Kenny told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“It’s a lot of money isn’t it? £100million. He is obviously a massive prospect and he is probably one of the top names in the world people are looking at.

“I can easily see Liverpool spending that kind of money on a big name. They have done it before with Alisson and Van Dijk.

“Then there is Nunez as well. Why not? Liverpool always get these deals right and I’m sure they will be looking at bringing him in next summer.”

Bellingham signed for Dortmund in 2020 from Birmingham for a fee of around £23million.

The English international played 43 games for Dortmund during the 2021-22 season, scoring six goals and providing 14 assists.
