Jude Bellingham to Liverpool looks a real possibility now. According to Spanish source, Fichajes, Liverpool are the still the favorites to secure the signing of the English superstar in the summer transfer window.
It is reported that Liverpool are willing to pay 150 million euros (£131m) for the 19-year-old star. If they get him that will be the signing of the window for Liverpool.
Role of Henderson if Jude Bellingham to Liverpool happens
Jordan Henderson could pick up a mentor role if Jude Bellingham signs for Liverpool in the summer. Gerrard helped Jordan Henderson through his first years at Anfield helping him to develop into the inspirational and bold captain he is today. Now he can do the same for Bellingham if he arrives.
Overall bellingham’s style of play is full of athleticism, footballing intelligence, and technical ability. He is a flamboyant young player. He has the potential to become one of the best midfielders in the world in the years to come.
Henderson is nothing short of a Liverpool legend having made 480 appearances for the club since joining from Sunderland in 2011. He led the Reds to Champions League glory in 2019. But he will forever be best remembered as the man who finally lifted the PL trophy for Liverpool after 30 years without title-winning success.
However, Henderson’s performances have started to drop off this season. There is a real chance he could lose his starting place over the summer as Jurgen Klopp looks to transform his midfield. That does not mean his importance will wain as the 32-year-old’s experience is vital in helping his younger team mates to progress.
Jude Bellingham is someone who could massively benefit from Jordan Henderson if he was to join Liverpool from Borussia Dortmund. The teenager is heavily linked with a move to Anfield. He is also believed to be one of Klopp’s top targets.
Real Madrid in for Bellingham as well
Los Blancos are only willing to offer 100 million euros for Bellingham. They are focusing on keeping legendary veterans, Modric and Kroos, for another year. However, the chances of that are low.
