Borussia Dortmund committed to Bellingham despite Premier League interest[/b]
The summer transfer window is closed for the top leagues in Europe! After a summer full of international football, countless clubs waited until the last minute to pull off their transfers. See all the major deals here and check out how we graded the biggest signings. But just because the window is shut until January, that doesn't mean the rumours won't keep coming.
Borussia Dortmund are set to reject any approach for wonderkid Jude Bellingham, despite interest from Liverpool, according to Sport1 journalist Patrick Berger.
Jurgen Klopp is said to be monitoring the England international with a potential move for a transfer next summer to help bolster his midfield options.
The 18-year-old's contract still has four years left on it with no release clause involved, allowing the Bundesliga club to potentially stand strong on their stance of not losing the midfielder.
Bellingham joined Dortmund from Birmingham City last season for roughly £20 million after becoming the Blues' youngest ever player to represent the club at just 16-years-old. The move was a world record transfer fee for a 17-year-old.
Since then, he has been involved in Gareth Southgate's squads, making his England debut in November of 2020 and making three appearances at the European Championships.
As for Liverpool, Klopp lost Georginio Wijnaldum on a free at the end of his contract in the summer and was not able to find a replacement in the transfer market but has since been linked with a few to fill that void.
Bellingham has experience playing with Liverpool players in the England side, most recently lining up with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson in midfield at Wembley against Andorra.
