Liverpool told the price they must pay for Jude Bellingham as Borussia Dortmund decide fee
| Last updated
Liverpool have been told the price they must pay for midfielder Jude Bellingham if they are to land the 19-year-old this summer.
Bellingham looks set to leave Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season, but his destination remains unknown.
Jurgen Klopp is thought to be a fond admirer of the England international, with the German keen to lure him to Anfield.
However, he is not alone. Bellingham's impressive performances at the World Cup have earned him plenty of interest from the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester City and Newcastle United.
And clubs have now been informed how much they would need to pay to sign the teenage superstar.
Bellingham's price tag revealed
Borussia Dortmund will reportedly use the price Chelsea paid for Enzo Fernandez as a benchmark for what clubs can expect to pay for Bellingham.
The Blues met Benfica's eye-watering £106.8m release clause for the Argentine, making him the most expensive Premier League transfer of all time.
It has been previously suggested that Dortmund would require at least £100m for Bellingham this summer, which now seems increasingly likely following Fernandez's big-money move to Stamford Bridge.
Journalist Christian Falk told CaughtOffside that all parties were 'keeping a close eye' on any potential Fernandez developments, in order to establish just how much Dortmund can expect to receive for their prized midfielder.
Bellingham's father favouring Anfield move
Though they are unlikely to have the financial capacity to match the likes of Newcastle United, Liverpool may have the upper hand in another sense.
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jacobs explained that Liverpool will likely be the 'top choice' of Bellingham's father, should the midfielder decide to move clubs.
Mark Bellingham, who was a regular goalscorer at non-league level during his own playing career, has reportedly held talks with Liverpool representatives on a number of occasions.
Jacobs explained: "The wooing of Jude Bellingham [by Liverpool] isn't only on football terms. It's about convincing his family, and that's where Liverpool have put in the most work.
"And if it was up to Bellingham's father, for example, I think that his top choice would be Liverpool.
"But Bellingham is going to score this a bit more dispassionately, much like Erling Haaland did when he joined Manchester City, and therefore he will look at other aspects, even stuff away from football."
