Jude Bellingham transfer stance made clear as Diogo Jota breaks silence after Liverpool comeback

Here is your morning Liverpool digest for Friday, February 10.

Jude Bellingham transfer stance is obvious after Pep Lijnders Liverpool admission

If Liverpool are to sign Jude Bellingham next summer, they will need to smash their transfer record with the England international expected to cost well over £100m when he departs Borussia Dortmund.

Whether the Reds are actually in a position to sign the midfielder remains to be seen, given their current struggles this season leave them highly unlikely to qualify for next season’s Champions League. Throw in FSG’s search for new investors and there are a number of reasons to be sceptical that they could actually finance a deal and win the teenager’s signature ahead of the likes of Real Madrid and Man City.

Meanwhile, the Reds would have moved for Aurelien Tchouameni last year, only to be told the France international only had eyes for Real Madrid. Leaving Monaco in an £85.3m deal, it would suggest that the required funds are there for such a signing even if they have been held back to date.

Diogo Jota sends two-word message as Liverpool star breaks silence after comeback

Liverpool attacker Diogo Jota has broken his silence after returning to training following a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The Portugal international has been out of action since he was stretchered off late on in the Reds’ 1-0 win over Manchester City at Anfield. He has been resigned to just four appearances this season after being forced off in October.

A serious calf injury forced him to also miss the World Cup in November as Fernando Santos’ side were knocked out in the quarter-finals. His comeback provides a welcome boost for Jurgen Klopp and the Reds as they endure one of the worst periods of results since the German replaced Brendan Rodgers in 2015.

He wasn’t the only returnee to the fold as Roberto Firmino, Virgil van Dijk and Arthur Melo all made further steps in their return to fitness.
