Liverpool are set to face stiff competition from Real Madrid in the race to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.

The England international is one of the most sought-after youngsters in world football and he has been touted for a big-money move.

The Reds have already contacted the player's father to obtain an advantage, but Madrid are currently doing the same procedure.

The Spanish champions are aiming to beat the Reds to the teenage sensation and they are growing confident of doing the same.

Bellingham is keen on playing Champions League football next term and that is far from guaranteed with the Reds at the moment.

Jurgen Klopp's side are currently sixth in the Premier League table, six points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with a game in hand.

They face a tough period after the international break with matches against Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal in quick succession.

This could make-or-break their top-four hopes as well as their chances of landing Bellingham, who is valued in the region of £100m.
