The 19-year-old midfielder has drawn much attention from football fans all over the world with to his impressive performances for Borussia Dortmund. And as a result, many of Europe’s top clubs have expressed interest in his services.
According to credible sources, his club has set a price tag of £87 million on him. However, from rumors, Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea are all interested in Bellingham, and they will compete with Liverpool for his talent.
Beyond his obvious skills, each club has its own reasons for being interested in Bellingham.
Liverpool believes Bellingham would provide them a new talent to freshen up their midfield for a generation. Liverpool’s weak midfield has already been exposed multiple times this season.
