Liverpool are continuing to monitor the performances of Borussia Dortmund’s teenage sensation Jude Bellingham.
The Reds have not spent significantly in recent transfer windows, but there could be a spending spree next summer.
A new central midfielder will be a priority, and it is claimed that Bellingham is one of the top names on their transfer wishlist.
Dortmund have no plans of selling their prized asset, but a significant bid of over £80m is expected to test their resolve.
The Merseyside giants are currently keeping tabs on his progress with a view to a potential club-record bid for his services.
Manchester United have also been long-term admirers of Bellingham. They tried to sign him from Birmingham City last year.
The 18-year-old was given a tour of the club’s Carrington training complex, but he still chose to join Dortmund over them.
The assurance of playing time was cited as a prime reason by the midfielder. It is unclear whether United will return for him.
