Back in April, the Reds were mentioned in a report, along with Chelsea, as having taken a keen interest in the teenager, and supporters on Twitter are now claiming he has signaled which team he would like to join:

Bellingham has already been described as a “fantastic” player by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, and it is not surprising to see why, considering the 17-year-old has established himself in Dortmund’s first team, having made 46 appearances in all competitions last season.
Of course, there is the small matter of his transfer fee. It is believed that, despite having only paid £25m for the player last summer, Dortmund now want in the region of £100m; a figure that will likely put off Liverpool and other potential suitors for now.
