Jude Bellingham would make Liverpool better

In our view, Bellingham would make Liverpool a better and stronger team in the middle of the park.

The 18-year-old is a very dynamic footballer who is a very ‘complete’ midfielder.

Bellingham can drive the team forward and can also protect the back-line.

The former Birmingham City star can be an imposing figure in the middle of the season, and he is only 18.

Bellingham has scored three goals and provided five assists in 16 Bundesliga appearances, and has scored one goal and given three assists in six Champions League games for Dortmund so far this season.
