Bellingham latest

Long-term Liverpool target Jude Bellingham is reportedly on Newcastle United’s radar, according to German news outlet Bild. The England international is expected to part company with Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season for a new challenge elsewhere and is not short of suitors.

The 19-year-old has been linked with a switch to Anfield for a while now but the Reds will have to see off strong competition from elsewhere if they are to land his signature. Spanish giants Real Madrid have also been credited with an interest over recent times.

Chelsea man on radar

Liverpool will be looking at possible alternatives in midfield if they do miss out on Bellingham. According to the Express, Chelsea’s Mason Mount is one of their ‘targets’ in that department ahead of the summer transfer window.

He has been on the books at Stamford Bridge for his whole career to date and has been a regular for the London club over the past couple of years after returning from his loan spells at Vitesse and Derby County. However, the recent flurry of signings made by Graham Potter could push him down the pecking order now.
