Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for Jude Bellingham – and Jordan Henderson has now raved about his work ethic.
Bellingham appears to be on a path to world stardom – not bad for a kid from the small West Midlands town of Stourbridge.
The 18-year-old excelled at Birmingham City, now he’s doing the same at Borussia Dortmund.
With two goals and five assists in 11 games this season, Bellingham is shining. Unsurprisingly, he’s now wanted man.
Liverpool’s interest in Bellingham
90Min claimed in September that Liverpool were in ‘constant talks’ to sign Bellingham.
It’s believed that the midfielder is fast becoming Liverpool’s priority target for the summer window.
Liverpool didn’t make a signing to replace Gini Wijnaldum, and Bellingham could yet be the man for the Reds.
Bellingham won’t come cheap, but his quality on the ball, runs off the ball, athleticism and work rate will make him very appealing to Liverpool.
Henderson picks out Bellingham
England players have now been asked a whole of questions by BT Sport.
One was where they had to name their hardest-working England teammate.
Liverpool star Jordan Henderson picked out Jude Bellingham as his answer, believing he is the hardest worker in the England camp.
Given how much running Liverpool’s midfielders are expected to get through, this is music to the ears of Jurgen Klopp.
Bellingham’s drive, desire and running ability mean he could fit into Wijnaldum’s Liverpool role, all whilst adding more of an attacking threat.
