In the meantime, Bild are reporting that Dortmund have started talks with Bellingham over doubling his salary as they look to keep him around.

Fernandez links

Liverpool could do with a midfielder before tomorrow’s deadline, and one player they have been linked with late in the window is Benfica star Enzo Fernandez.

Fernandez has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, but the La Liga giants have already strengthened the middle of the park this summer.

According to Sky Sports, Liverpool have tracked Fernandez as they weight up midfield targets.
