Liverpool could seal 'huge' Bellingham signing after reported update - pundit

Paul Robinson has heaped praise on Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham amid reported interest from Liverpool in his signature.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former England number one claimed the 18-year-old would be a “huge” signing for the Reds that would appease fans who have been disappointed by the lack of spending this year.

According to the Daily Star (September 7th), the England international is now Jurgen Klopp’s top target.

It is reported that Liverpool will have to pay a club-record £80million to land the teenage midfielder ahead of their Premier League rivals.

Bellingham has four years remaining on his contract at Dortmund.

When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his assessment of the news, Robinson said: “I think he’d be a great signing.

“He would fit into the way Liverpool play fantastically well. That front three would really benefit from having a player like that behind them.

“It is hard to pick a player that would break into that side but I really think he would. If Liverpool can get the cash for him next year it would be huge.

“There has been a lot of smoke and mirrors in this transfer window from Liverpool. It has been new contracts instead of new signings but a signing like Bellingham would appease a lot of people.

“He would make them better. He is a joy to watch and will only improve. It’s hard to believe how young he is.

“The way he plays, he would fit into Liverpool’s system.”
