Jordan Henderson wants Liverpool to sign Jude Bellingham.
Jordan Henderson urges Liverpool to sign Jude Bellingham.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has claimed that it “would be amazing” if the Reds were able to sign rising sensation Jude Bellingham once he departs Borussia Dortmund.
Bellingham is expected to transfer in the summer of 2023 or 2024. He was one of the most sought-after players in the world before turning 20 and will soon make 200 appearances for the club and nation.
The three clubs leading the transfer fight are Liverpool, Real Madrid, and Manchester City, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Paris Saint-Germain at the back maintaining somewhat less close attention.
According to reports, the Bellingham camp has met – with Dortmund’s permission – with Liverpool, Real and City, and all three have presented what they believe to be a compelling argument that the teenage prodigy should choose them as his next club.
- Jude Bellingham discloses ‘biggest dream’ he has for his career.
- Harry Kane becomes England’s all-time leading men’s goalscorer.
- Bayern Munich sack Julian Nagelsmann; announced Thomas Tuchel as replacement.
The rumours that Bellingham would choose to sign with Liverpool over the other clubs have grown as a result of his longtime adoration for Anfield great Steven Gerrard and his blossoming connection with Henderson while on international duty.
“I’m sure he’ll sit down with his family and in the future to decide what route he wants to take. Whatever route that is or whatever club that is, that will be a lucky club to have him. His potential is through the roof, really. He can be as good as he wants to be,” Henderson said this week.
“He’s got the right mentality, which is the most important thing. He’s really special and I can’t believe his age and his mentality – how he applies himself to training and games…everything. I’ve never seen it before so I’m pretty confident he’ll be a pretty good player for many years to come.”
Henderson also warned ‘not to apply too much pressure’ and instead let Bellingham ‘just play football, adding, “Every time he puts on an England shirt he grows and is getting better and better.
“There are things he can improve on but the platform and the basis he has got he can go as high as he wants to. I just want him to be the best player he can be. If it ended up being Liverpool that would be amazing. But it’s got to be right for him. Every club you can think will want him.”
