Liverpool: Craig Hignett says Jude Bellingham will move to Anfield -Liverpool Transfer Rumours

Jude Bellingham believes that his future belongs at Liverpool after leaving Borussia Dortmund, according to BBC radio pundit and former Premier League midfielder Craig Hignett.

The Lowdown: Bellingham stars for Dortmund

The 18-year-old is arguably one of Europe’s most exciting young players at the moment, performing at an incredible level for Dortmund. He has scored three goals and registered five assists in all competitions so far this season, but his all-round performances have caught the eye in the middle of the park.

Liverpool have been linked with a stunning move for the England international and an interesting line has now emerged regarding his future.

The Latest: Hignett makes exciting claim

Speaking on BBC Radio Merseyside [via Inside Futbol], Hignett claimed that he has inside information on Bellingham and said that a move to Anfield is a near-certainty for the teenager.

He stated: “I think I’ve heard it on good authority and I can’t say where I’ve heard it from, but apparently he has been saying that he is Liverpool bound.

“Whether that is January or whether that is the end of the season isn’t sure yet, but I think, I have it on good authority that it is almost a cert.”

The Verdict: Generational talent

This is a hugely exciting update if it is accurate, with Bellingham potentially becoming a superstar for many years to come.

Liverpool’s midfield is need of reinforcements next summer, with Jordan Henderson, Thiago and James Milner all now in their 30s. On top of that, Naby Keita is still proving to be notoriously injury-prone, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be sold and the likes of Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott are still maturing as players.

Bellingham may only be 18 but he is already excelling at a high level, averaging 1.5 tackles and 1.3 interceptions per game in the Bundesliga this season, on top of his aforementioned quality in the final third.

If Liverpool can beat other prospective suitors to his signature, it could feel like a significant piece of business. Hignett’s comments offer strong hope that it could materialise.

In other news, some Liverpool fans were unhappy with one player’s performance against Brighton. Read more here.
