Dominic King names the player that would fit Liverpool's project

The Daily Mail's Dominic King has implied that Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham would be a good signing for Liverpool.

The Reds have been linked with a move for the 18-year-old in recent times.

With that being the case, King believes that Bellingham would fit Liverpool's project.

"Midfield is an area that Klopp will address at some point," the journalist wrote.

"One player who would definitely fit Liverpool’s project is Jude Bellingham but whether they have the money to do a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s £100 million-rated (contract expires in June 2025) 18-year-old is another question altogether."

Anfield Watch Verdict

Bellingham is a top player, and we will prove that. The midfielder has scored six goals and registered 12 assists in 34 appearances.

Bellingham has been averaging a WhoScored player rating of 7.27 across the 2021-22 club campaign.

Back in September 2021, Borussia Dortmund centre-back labelled the Englishman as a "fantastic footballer".

"Jude is the most mature 18-year-old player I've ever seen. He's already a leader and also one of the most vocal in the team,” the 33-year-old told

“He's a fantastic footballer, and a fantastic guy. I think I've told him about 25 times now that I just love him. He's on his way to the very top, there's no doubt about that.”

In terms of King's comments regarding the 18-year-old fitting in with Liverpool's project, we completely agree.

Fenway Sports Group, the club's owners, have rarely funded a deal for a player that is at the backend of their career.

The only time FSG have signed the finished article is when Thiago Alcantara (30 years of age) arrived from Bayern Munich for a transfer fee of €22 million back in the summer of 2020.

Bellingham is young and only going to get better. He fits in with Liverpool's current transfer strategy.

But, as King pointed out, the Reds might not be able to afford Bellingham. Only time will tell if the Reds are to make a move for the midfielder.
