Borussia Dortmund have now placed a heavy £101m price tag on their wonder kid, Jude Bellingham in an attempt to scare off Premier League club, Liverpool who have shown interest in the player.
Former Dortmund and current Liverpool Manager, Jurgen Klopp is a massive admirer of the starlet, who he regards as his ‘Number 1’ target but must splash out a record-breaking fee if Liverpool is going to land him.
Bellingham, who moved to Dortmund from his boyhood club, Birmingham wasted no time to announce himself to the world as an exciting talent in Germany, thereby drawing the attention of a host of top European clubs.
Liverpool is a major contender among the interested parties but MySportDab understands that their hopes of signing the youngster might have now been dashed by the huge price tag placed on him by Dortmund.
The 18-year old continues his sensational form as he has started all Bundesliga and Champions League games for Dortmund this season and does not look like stopping soon.
Dortmund paid £25m for Bellingham in 2020 to secure his services until 2025 but it appears now that his valuation may have quadrupled, owing to his amazing performances. His current club will not let him go unless they receive at least £101m as they look to keep him until the end of his contract, except there is a club willing to pay the fee.
Bellingham settled quickly in Dortmund as he has made over 60 appearances for them and also earning eight international caps for his country. He is regarded as an important player in England under Gareth Southgate, who is integrating him gradually into the setup.
Meanwhile, MySportDab can also confirm that Dortmund are reportedly looking to land Jobe, Bellingham’s younger brother, also from Birmingham.
Jobe has been making a name for himself at Birmingham and Dortmund are looking to reunite the brothers as it is believed they have been interested in him since he was 14.
The report further states that the family is keen for Jobe, who is represented by their father, Mark who is also Jude’s agent, to continue in Birmingham for the meantime.
