  • May 16, 12:14

Having completed a domestic double cup winning season, Liverpool are keeping the momentum going by moving forward to sign Birmingham City youngster Jobe Bellingham, the brother of Dortmund star Jude.

The 16-year-old is highly-rated in the Midlands and has been linked to Manchester City and Newcastle, but its Liverpool who are supposed frontrunners – according to the Mirror.

Jobe Bellingham is so sought-after due to his versatility across the midfield, as well as being more than able at both left-back and centre-forward. Such choice is a luxury for top-flight clubs chasing looking to fit stars in their first XIs.

Bellingham has so fa been used sparingly by Birmingham, but with a couple of Championship appearances, no doubt the youngster is viewed as a key part of future plans by the Blues – or indeed a Premier League club.
