Liverpool want Jude Bellingham

This summer Jude Bellingham turned 18-years-old.

Despite his young age he is a first team mainstay for Borussia Dortmund.

The teenager has started all three of the Bundesliga side’s opening games of the season.

Previously Eurosport reported on Liverpool interest in Jude Bellingham.

The report stated that Dortmund see the youngster as a £100m man.

It’s easy to understand why given his remarkable and consistent performances at such a young age.

The youngster has caught the attention of the Reds’ skipper.

This international break the pair started in midfield together for England.

The teenager caught the eye with a commanding performance in the middle of the park, playing an hour before being brought off during a comfortable victory against Andorra.

Jordan Henderson was full of praise for Jude Bellingham, the Liverpool captain is quoted by Bundesliga.com as saying:

“He’s a fantastic player, even at such a young age he shows fantastic maturity on and off the field. You can see how hungry he is to be a top player and has all the attributes to do that.”

What RTK has to say

Liverpool signing Jude Bellingham would be the absolute dream.

Hopefully this is Jordan Henderson laying the groundwork.

We believe the youngster would be interested in a move due to his admiration for Steven Gerrard.

His arrival would settle our midfield for a decade, we should be going all out for him.
