Jude Bellingham, a midfielder for Borussia Dortmund, has to be acquired by Liverpool, according to Robbie Fowler
The former Liverpool forward was quite complimentary of the 19-year-old in his column for The Mirror.
This season, Bellingham has been among Dortmund’s best performers, and his stature is only increasing.
He partnered with Declan Rice in midfield on Friday when England faced Italy, earning his 15th cap.
With Fabrizio Romano promoting a transfer to Bellingham for next summer, there has already been a lot of conjecture regarding the city’s future.
The “wonderful” teenager might emulate Erling Haaland by making an impact for Dortmund before making the switch to the Premier League.
Fowler: Bellingham must be acquired by Liverpool
There is a lot of anticipation among Liverpool fans that Bellingham will move to Anfield, Fowler wrote in his piece.
“Klopp needs a player like Bellingham.
Every team has to be revitalized every so often, and I believe that Bellingham’s arrival next summer would boost Liverpool in the same way that acquiring (Virgil) Van Dijk once did.
Borussia Dortmund is making comments that suggest it will take an offer over £130 million to get them to sell.
These financial behemoths include Manchester City, Chelsea, Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain.
Anyone else, though? I’m not certain.
Bellingham’s potential to make an impact like to Van Dijk, according to Fowler, is a significant assertion.
The Dutch defender has improved Liverpool’s defense and provided Jurgen Klopp’s team the ideal foundation upon which to launch assaults.
Bellingham would be a gem in future midfield for Klopp.
This year, Liverpool’s midfield has been a problem area, with injuries making things difficult for Klopp.
The Reds already boast a plethora of promising young midfielders, including Stefan Bajcetic, Curtis Jones, Fabio Carvalho, Harvey Elliott, and Fabio Carvalho.
However, Bellingham would be a step above these athletes and could manage Liverpool’s midfield for many years.
Concerns over Liverpool’s capacity to compete financially with the other largest teams in the globe could stem from Fowler’s misgivings.
Alisson, Virgil van Dijk, and Darwin Nunez have all demonstrated that Liverpool isn’t hesitant to make significant purchases when necessary.
It won’t come as a surprise to many that Liverpool great Fowler thinks Bellingham should be acquired by his old team.
That wish may come true given a report that the Reds are in prime position to sign him next summer.
