Pundit gives his verdict on Liverpool's chances of signing Jude Bellingham

Former Arsenal player Kevin Campbell thinks that Jude Bellingham is likely to pick Real Madrid or Liverpool as his next club.

With Bellingham likely to move away from Borussia Dortmund next summer, there has been a lot of speculation as to where he'll end up.

Currently, it seems like Real Madrid and Liverpool are the most likely destinations for the England international and one pundit thinks that the La Liga club is a very "difficult" move to turn down as a player.

“Listen, to come back to England for a club like Liverpool would appeal to Jude Bellingham I’m sure," Campbell told Football Insider.

“The question is, what kind of feeling does he have towards Real Madrid. Real Madrid has that mystery. They are a juggernaut of a club. When a Real Madrid comes in, it is very difficult for players to turn them down.

“Bellingham might want to come back. If he wants to come back to England I’m sure there will be a lot of clubs interested.

“Liverpool would be in pole position if he does. There are only a few teams he could come back to. It would be a good move for Liverpool. It has been talked about for 18 months or so now.

“Bellingham is at Dortmund as well, Klopp has very good links there. I’m sure he has been well studied.”

Anfield Watch Verdict

German outlet BILD revealed, as cited by Anfield Watch, that Dortmund have placed a €120 million price tag on Bellingham's head.

With Real Madrid recently signing Aurelien Tchouameni, it's extremely unlikely that they'll be in for the 19-year-old this summer transfer window.

However, after Liverpool missed out on signing Tchouameni, the Reds could try and sign Bellingham before a juggernaut club like Madrid steps in.

Liverpool aren't going to be able to offer the amount of money that clubs such as Real Madrid will be able to, but if the England international believes in Jurgen Klopp's project, then that shouldn't be an issue.

Bellingham would be a handy addition to the German's squad. He is considered to be one of the brightest talents in the game after all.
