Speaking to Off The Ball, Liverpool legend Phil Thompson has been discussing the Reds’ ongoing links to Jude Bellingham.

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder is reportedly Liverpool’s top midfield target heading into next summer, and Thompson would like to think that the Reds will win the race for his signature.

However, Thompson is well aware that it won’t be easy to land Bellingham, stating that the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United will be competing on that front.

What’s been said?

Thompson responded when asked about Liverpool signing Bellingham.

“I would like to think that (Liverpool will sign Bellingham) and we all would. We’re all putting  two and two together aren’t we, but it’s not that easy. The likes of Chelsea are spending money like it’s going out of fashion. They’re spending money on Cucurella, they’re throwing money around at the moment, Manchester United with what they’re trying to do. These teams will start having a plan and Bellingham will tick everyone’s box,” Thompson said.

Won’t be easy

Thompson says that it won’t be easy for Liverpool to sign Bellingham, and he’s absolutely right.

Make no mistake about it, every top team in Europe will have this young man on their transfer radar, and while the Reds have shown the most interest so far, it’s impossible to predict where he will end up.

Manchester United and Chelsea may not be at Liverpool’s level right now, but in terms of finances, those two clubs have shown much more willingness to spend big than the Reds in recent years.

Bellingham will be the jewel in the crown of whichever team he joins, and Liverpool need to make sure they’re at the front of the queue when the times comes for the midfielder to leave Dortmund.
