Comparing Jude Bellingham’s stats to Liverpool’s current midfielders

Jude Bellingham has been a long-term transfer target for Liverpool but would he represent an upgrade on the midfielders currently at Jurgen Klopp’s disposal? We’ve crunched the numbers to find out…

Bellingham has blossomed into one of the finest midfielders in Europe since moving from Birmingham to Borussia Dortmund in 2020.

The 19-year-old is a mainstay of the Dortmund XI, competing in the Champions League on a regular basis, and has forced his way into England’s midfield for the 2022 World Cup.

After scoring his first international goal during the 6-2 thrashing of Iran, Bellingham has underlined his status and has a host of Europe’s richest clubs fighting for his signature.

Both Manchester clubs and Real Madrid are keen on signing Bellingham next summer but Liverpool have been the most strongly linked with the England international.

The Reds are set to make Bellingham their main target for next summer as Klopp looks to overhaul the midfield with a blockbuster move.

But how do his 2022-23 stats compare to Liverpool’s current set of midfielders? We’ve compared Bellingham’s Bundesliga numbers with the corresponding Premier League digits of Liverpool’s most-used midfielders to answer that very question…
