LIVERPOOL boss Jurgen Klopp is interested in raiding his old club Borussia Dortmund for midfield phenom Jude Bellingham.
England international Bellingham announced himself to the world at Euro 2020with three solid displays for Gareth Southgate's side.
The appearances capped off a stellar 2020/21 campaign for the 18-year-old, who shone in his debut season in the Bundesliga.
And according to Dortmund's Players Licence Department director Sebastian Kehl, Liverpool are one of many clubs interested in signing the midfielder.
He told Sport1: "There’s a lot of interest around Jude Bellingham, not only Liverpool."
The Merseysiders, however, will have to break the bank for the youngster as he doesn't have a release clause in his contract at the Westfalenstadion.
Kehl added: "But there is no bottom line and no exit clause."
Bellingham, a former target of Liverpool's bitter rivals Manchester United, joined Dortmund from Championship outfit Birmingham City last July for a fee of £25m.

The lanky teenager immediately hit the ground running, scoring and providing four goals and assists in 46 appearances in all competitions.
Bellingham carried his good form into the 2021/22 campaign, in which he's scored three goals and provided seven assists in 15 matches.
And the England ace is already beloved by the Dortmund brass and fans alike.
Kehl said: "He is loved, he enjoys that. There are no signs he could leave BVB soon."
Despite the likes of United trying to acquire his services, Bellingham believes he made the right decision moving to Germany,
In May, he said: "For me, it's all about the feeling that I get from the people and the ambition.
"People bring up money and all that rubbish but I wouldn't play for a club that I didn't genuinely fall in love with. But I felt a strong connection with the people at Dortmund.
"I think you look at those people [Sancho and Erling Haaland] and think, just the platform they've been given to perform really, and that's all I feel like I needed.
"I feel like they're a perfect example of that, and especially Jadon coming from England, he's been a massive help since I've got here so from the first day I knew I'd made the right decision to be honest.
"You know, I kind of just feel like Germany's my second home now."
Bellingham and his Dortmund team-mates will be back in action on Saturday afternoon, welcoming FC Koln to the Westfalenstadion.
