Former Arsenal star Ian Wright believes Jude Bellingham would definitely leave Dortmund amind Liverpool‘s interest.
Liverpool needs midfield enforcement. And the club is eyeing a Dortmund Midfielder.
It’s safe to say that Ian Wright loves Jude Bellingham, who is being sought by Liverpool.
Wright was waxing poetic about the 19-year-old midfielder on the Wrighty’s House podcast.
The 19-year-old will eventually become a “big star,” according to the Arsenal veteran.
Bellingham, in Wright’s opinion, will soon quit Borussia Dortmund.
Liverpool is reportedly leading the competition to sign Bellingham, according to prior reports from The Telegraph.
Bellingham is likely to command a high price. SportBild is estimating that £105 million (€120 million) would be sufficient to get his services.
Moreover, Wright believes that if Bellingham leaves, it might cost £150 million to sign him right away.
Bellingham is one of the most exciting young players in the world right now.
Bellingham, a crucial member of the Dortmund team, has already been given the captain’s hat for this year.
The 19-year-old started both of England’s final games before the World Cup and will travel to Qatar in the coming month.
Bellingham will have an even greater stage to display his talents as a result. And his future in Germany may be seriously put in jeopardy.
The Englishman, who has 17 caps, would be the ideal addition to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool squad.
This season, Klopp has dealt with a lot of middle-of-the-field injuries. Moreover, the balance of his team hasn’t always looked well.
In fact, against Rangers yesterday, Klopp finally broke from his go-to midfield three.
Bellingham might create an outstanding partnership with Thiago and Fabinho in Liverpool’s lineup.
Ian Wright is full of praise for Bellingham
Jude Bellingham is Dortmund’s current captain, which is an incredible message to send out when you consider the future. Wright said.
Wright further said:
I don’t look at it like a ‘hands off’ because it’s almost like, ‘wow, this guy’s 19, and he’s our captain’. This is what he’s capable of. This isn’t a ‘hands off our man.’ This is a ‘look at our man.’
Jude Bellingham, for England, has to start at the World Cup. So, if he has a good World Cup, we’re talking about £150m straight off the bat, and he’s got no buyout clause.
What we’ve seen, he’s got into the England squad at 17, he’s captain of Dortmund at 19. He’s going to go to one of the big clubs.
He will be a major star playing for one of the big teams barring an injury.”
