Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp drops Jude Bellingham transfer hint

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has dropped a potential transfer hint on England wonderkid Jude Bellingham and a potential move to Anfield.

The Reds have been linked with a move for the Borussia Dortmund midfielder, especially with the likes of Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, and Thiago Alcantara all around their 30s.

However, Klopp has now dropped a hint confirming the club’s interest in the player as well as hinting at possible exits from the club.

Klopp said: ” He’s not on the market – so, that’s the only problem with that player.

“I don’t think something will happen in midfield, but you never know. If somebody comes to you and says ‘I want to go’… but nobody came to me yet.”

Bellingham to Anfield?

If Liverpool do make a significant move for Bellingham in the near future, it would not be a surprise.

Since Klopp moved to Merseyside in October 2015, he has slowly been building a dynasty to compete at the pinnacle of world football and has a world-beater of a squad at his disposal that has been the squad-building work of years and several transfer windows.

However, the club are now at a crossroads that every successful club reaches when they have to freshen up the squad and continue their success with younger players.

Key players like Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago, Mo Salah, Virgil van Dijk, Roberto Firmino, and Alisson Becker all entering or already in their 30s, the time has come for Klopp to freshen up the squad with young and hungry players.

They have already started that process with signings like Darwin Nunez, Harvey Elliott, Ibrahima Konate, Fabio Carvalho, and Calvin Ramsay, but signing Bellingham to replace members of their aging midfield trio, would be a major statement of intent from the club.
