The 19-year-old Dortmund star currently has a price tag of £130 million owing to his distinguished performances, which seems to have cooled off interest from Liverpool and Manchester City somewhat.

Liverpool finds Bellingham alternative

Meanwhile, Liverpool are considering a big-money move for Inter Milan star, Nicolo Barella this summer, after ruling themselves out of the race to sign Dortmund's Bellingham, Daily Mail reports.

Jurgen Klopp and the Reds' hierarchy deemed the midfielder's asking price - which is expected to be in excess of £130 million - to be excessive and the club has decided to seek other options.

Bellingham had been at the top of Liverpool's list for over a season but the Anfield side appear to prefer spreading their money across multiple signings rather than paying up for one player.

'Bellingham should stay at Dortmund'

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Borussia Dortmund legend, Stefan Effenberg stating Bellingham should stay in the Bundesliga for another season so he can grow as a player if he stays with Borussia Dortmund for another season.

The highly-rated midfielder has been constantly linked with a move away from the German side, with Real Madrid and Liverpool said to be the frontrunners for his signature.

However, Dortmund are keen to keep hold of their star player and Effenberg believes it would be in Bellingham's best interests to remain with the side for one more term.
