Borussia Dortmund Have Confirmed Liverpool Are Keen on Bellingham
Liverpool has expressed interest in signing Borussia Dortmund’s brilliant young midfielder Jude Bellingham.
But the England international is not for sale, as we said above, and according to sporting director Sebastian Kehl.
The 18-year-old has quickly established himself as one of the world’s most talked-about young players. He has enjoyed an outstanding start to the new season, having also represented England’s the Three Lions at Euro 2020.
And his meteoric rise has piqued the interest of Europe’s upper crust, notably, among several other clubs, the Reds.
But Dortmund boss Kehl stated that there are ‘no signs’ that he will leave the Bundesliga side anytime soon.
“He is a Borussia Dortmund player and remains a Borussia Dortmund player,” Kehl told Sport1.
“There’s a lot of interest around Jude Bellingham, not only Liverpool,” he said, counterintuitively confirming Liverpool’s interest in signing Bellingham.
However, Kehl went on: “But there is no bottom line and no exit clause. He is loved, he enjoys that.
“There are no signs he could leave Dortmund soon.”
