Bellingham drops possible Liverpool transfer hint with '7' image on Instagram
| Last updated
Jude Bellingham has dropped a possible hint that he is interested in a move to Liverpool.
The England international has become one of the most sought-after players in world football and has been tipped for a summer move from Borussia Dortmund to Europe’s elite.
On the continent, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are both thought to be keen on signing the 19-year-old, while the Premier League’s Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea have also reportedly registered an interest.
Indeed, Liverpool have allegedly made Bellingham their number one transfer target for the summer, and may have boosted their hopes of landing the midfielder at the weekend, having demolished bitter rivals United 7-0.
Not only was it the heaviest scoreline anyone had inflicted against United in a competitive game since Boxing Day 1931, but it also significantly increased Liverpool’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League, which would make them a far more enticing prospect when it comes to signings.
And jubilant Liverpool fans are now interpreting Bellingham’s latest Instagram post as a hint he will soon be on his way to Anfield.
Jude Bellingham’s Instagram 'hint'
Bellingham has posted two images of himself and his father, Mark, to his Instagram story, to celebrate his dad’s birthday.
However eagle-eyed Reds fans have spotted that in one of the pictures, a young Bellingham is wearing a top with the number seven on it. Of course, the image has been shared just days after Liverpool thrashed United 7-0, leading some supporters to claim the Dortmund man is hinting he wants a Merseyside move.

Just a day earlier, Bellingham had got Liverpool fans talking over a potential move to Anfield after the teenager liked Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold’s post celebrating the United victory.
However this week German publication Bild reported that Dortmund still believe there is a 50/50 chance the player will stay at the club this summer.
The outlet claimed that Dortmund’s position in the Bundesliga - level on points with leaders Bayern - could help convince the Birmingham-born star to stay at Dortmund.
Indeed, the teenager could be enticed by the prospect of winning titles in Germany.
