The England international has already matured into a top-tier Bundesliga and Champions League player, making him one of Europe’s most sought-after young talents.
Liverpool has emerged as the clear frontrunners for Bellingham‘s signature in 2023, with the general consensus being that this will be his final season in a Dortmund shirt.
Speaking to The Redmen TV, Jones said that Bellingham will almost certainly move somewhere new in 2o23, also confirming Liverpool’s continued interest:
“Liverpool want Jude Bellingham. The educated thing is that he leaves Dortmund next summer. Almost 100%. That was sort of made clear that he’s not going anywhere this year.”
In terms of no-brainer signings, Bellingham feels like one of the most obvious for Liverpool in many years, such is his style of play and incredible long-term potential. Jack Grealish has described him as having ‘scary’ ability and still with so many years ahead to develop further.
The 19-year-old, primarily a right-sided central midfielder, could fill a role that appears to be a weakness for the Reds right now, with Jordan Henderson aging, Naby Keita injury-prone, and Harvey Elliott still learning his trade.
Liverpool were frugal in the transfer market this summer, and they simply must go big on midfielders in 2023, with the England man their marquee addition who could be a superstar for a decade.
