Jude Bellingham’s performance against Germany on Monday night at Wembley had it all.
At a time when Gareth Southgate and his England side are receiving criticism and find themselves without a win in their last six outings, the 19-year-old star’s display explains why Liverpool, among many other major European outfits, are desperate to sign the midfielder at the end of the season.
The former Birmingham City star was replaced by Jordan Henderson in injury time, a sight that many Reds supporters will be hoping to witness at Anfield in the near future.
With the 3-3 draw with Germany being the last fixture for the Three Lions before their Qatar World Cup opener on November 21, Bellingham has ensured he will be one of the first names on the Three Lions boss’ team sheet.
Liverpool have reportedly singled out the teenager as their main transfer target at the end of the season but they certainly won’t be the only club interested in his signature – a fact that won’t be helped by Dortmund’s valuation of the England international in the region of £130m.

Helping break up dangerous-looking attacks from the Germans whilst also orchestrating play from the middle of the park, unleashing the likes of Harry Kane and Mason Mount ahead of him will have certainly raised fears that of a solid World Cup campaign significantly raising his price-tag.
As Jurgen Klopp’s midfield has struggled at times this season, it was a performance that highlighted how big a role he could play if/when he arrives on Merseyside.
Can you just imagine the joy we’d have watching him alongside Thiago Alcantara in midfield?
