Bodusliga side Borussia Dortmund sit on £84m offer from Liverpool for Jude Bellingham



Liverpool have offered Borussia Dortmund £84m for midfielder Jude Bellingham.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are in desperate need of reinforcements in midfield and have identified Dortmund and Englishman Bellingham as their main targets ahead of this summer’s transfer window.

And acting on their desire to bring the talented 19-year-old back to England, sources at CaughtOffside have revealed the Premier League giants have made their German rivals an £84m (€95m) offer.

We understand that Liverpool has not yet received a response from Dortmund, while the Bundesliga would like to receive further proposals from other interested clubs between now and the summer.

Well-connected British agent and CaughtOffside columnist Haydn Dodge recently revealed in an exclusive interview how Liverpool’s offer is “well known” among those working in the football industry. “It is well known that an offer of just under £100m was made for Jude Bellingham ahead of this summer’s transfer window,” Dodge said in his latest column.

And the agent’s revelation has since been backed by sources close to the player and Liverpool.

When asked if Bellingham would like to join Liverpool if the Reds’ offer is accepted, our source replied: “He could. His family loves Liverpool and his fans love it.

Since joining Dortmund from Birmingham City in 2020, Bellingham, who has two years left on his contract, has directly contributed to 45 goals in 127 games in all competitions.

Borussia Dortmund have been contacted for comment but have yet to respond.


Where is Mohamed Salah on Liverpool’s all-time penalty list?

Mohamed Salah’s position as Liverpool’s penalty taker has been called into question after two consecutive misses, but where does he fit on the club’s all-time list?

The Egyptian took over responsibility as Liverpool’s designated penalty taker in 2019, taking over from James Milner.

During his time at Anfield, Salah lined up for a penalty 29 different times and missed just five – a conversion rate of 82.7%.

Coincidentally, his last two defeats have come within a month – against Bournemouth and Arsenal – and questions are now being asked about his future on penalties. Salah is the club’s fifth most prolific spot-kick player, behind only Steven Gerrard (47), Jan Molby (42), Phil Neal (38) and Billy Liddell (34).

Milner, meanwhile, is eighth with 19 successful conversions during his time at Anfield.

Salah scored 24 penalties and missed 5 for LFC

Ranked fifth on the club’s all-time penalty shootout list

With both of Salah’s recent mistakes depriving Liverpool of a chance to change the outcome of the game, it’s no surprise that Salah is under scrutiny, Jürgen Klopp admitted.

“We’ll talk about it, but not here,” admitted Klopp when asked if he would consider releasing Salah from prison service after the draw against Arsenal.

It’s a part of the game that Salah has admitted he doesn’t really like, telling Steven Gerrard in an LFCTV video, “I’ve always hated pens, I don’t like the feel.”

The 30-year-old has a unique approach and some fans might tell you they never felt 100% confident with Salah on the ball, but he seems to have changed his tack. Power shots were traded for more targeted ball placement, but his last two attempts on the latter saw him miss the target completely (both to the right of the keeper).

Between October 2017, starting at Huddersfield, Salah scored 17 consecutive penalties in all competitions until the end of the 2021 run.

When Liverpool don’t receive penalties very often there is added pressure to convert and if a move were to take place either Fabinho or Darwin Nunez would be competitive.
