Liverpool are front runners in the race to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham, according to the Daily Mirror.




Per the report, 'The Reds' want to make Bellingham their record transfer next summer, with a fee of around €100 million suggested.

However, Bellingham looks unlikely to leave Dortmund just two years after his arrival from Birmingham City.

The 18-year-old still has three and a half years left on his contract and recently waxed lyrical about the Bundesliga club in the documentary "JB22 – Dortmund's high flyer".

"I've never been part of a team that suits me so well," he said.


"There is no better club in the world when it comes to bringing out young players and developing them for the next level. I want to develop here and give something back by winning titles and games," he added.

Bellingham has featured 22 times for 'Die Schwarzgelben' this season, racking up three goals and nine assists.
