LIVERPOOL’S promising Tyler Morton could do a Jude Bellingham — and be snapped up by German giants Borussia Dortmund.
The midfielder, 20, is starring on loan at Blackburn in their promotion push and the Bundesliga outfit are taking a keen interest.
Stylish Morton is seen as a Kop star of the future but he may have a long wait for that chance at Anfield.
Dortmund are famed for raiding English clubs to grab talent on the way up after landing England star Bellingham and Jadon Sancho.
Their English spy Daniel Dodds is checking on Morton. He was formerly at the FA, Southampton and Nottingham Forest before joining the German club.
Dortmund could ask for Morton as part of a Bellingham deal if he opts to move to Merseyside.
Bellingham joined Dortmund in 2020 and has gone on to become one of the most exciting prospects in Europe.
His old club Birmingham even retired his kit number 22 as a sign of respect to the player as the transfer fee they received for him helped the financial position of the club.
Morton is on a long contract at Anfield and not showing any interest in leaving.
But if Dortmund make a pitch then it may be hard to refuse.
This season at Ewood Park, the young midfielder has impressed, helping the club push for promotion back to the Premier League.
Morton has made 19 appearances in the Championship and has provided a good amount of cover for the team’s defensive line.
