Liverpool have been informed that Jude Bellingham and Borussia Dortmund are “not interested” in discussing a transfer this summer.
  • Klopp keen on England international
  • Dortmund have no desire to sell
  • Midfielder under contract to 2025

WHAT HAPPENED? The England international midfielder is said to be a top target for the Reds, as Jurgen Klopp’s finds himself short on options in the Anfield engine room, but no deal will be done for the highly-rated 19-year-old before the next deadline passes.

WHAT THEY SAID: Quizzed on the rumours that continue to rage around Bellingham, Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl has told Sky90: “There is no request and to be honest - I know that from the player and his family - the boy is not interested at all this summer to go somewhere.

“He will stay with us, I can guarantee that today. Of course he wants to take the next step at some point. My wish would be to keep the boys for a year or two longer.”

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Bellingham remains under contract at Dortmund until 2025, meaning that the Bundesliga outfit are under no pressure to sell.
