Liverpool tipped to use international break to hunt for next top transfer target with Reds set to watch England star’s progress – report

Posted by

Liverpool are reportedly monitoring Borussia Dortmund star, Jude Bellingham, over the course of the international break, with the forward having been called up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

This comes from the Express (via Liverpool Echo), with the publication noting the youngster’s impressive start in the Bundesliga this season, registering two assists and a goal in the club’s opening three league games.

There have been tenuous links between the Reds and the English international, which may yet intensify if the Merseysiders’ need for a new forward becomes more apparent prior to the next window.
