REVEALED: Bellingham's Mum, Dad and agent 'are really focused on Liverpool'

Liverpool have reached a breakthrough in talks to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.

Bellingham's proposed transfer to Liverpool is "very, very close" according to head of football at BILD, Christian Falk.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp's admiration for the 19-year-old is no secret, but the Reds face competition for his signature from Real Madrid, Manchester City, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.

Speaking on the Anfield Wrap's podcast on Wednesday, Falk said of the move: "(Erling) Haaland left us to go to the Premier League, so all eyes now are on Bellingham and Musiala, who is playing at Bayern Munich and not for England, I like to mention that!

"We're going to lose Bellingham like Haaland next summer, it's getting closer and closer. You heard the news today, you will have heard that Bellingham and Liverpool are very, very close. There have been many, many talks. His father Mark, mother Denise and agent Mark Bennett are really focused on Liverpool."
