Liverpool to sign Jude Bellingham and his England teammate as pundit confirms
Football Pundit has backed Liverpool to sign Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice next summer.
According to the report, the Reds and Real Madrid are competing to sign the 19-year-old next year.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former West Ham striker Frank McAvennie said signing two players like Bellingham and Rice would be a “different class”.
The midfielder currently has three years remaining on his Dortmund contract.
meanwhile, Rice has two years left on his deal with the hammers that includes the option of a further year.
Declan Rice was one of Klopp’s top targets during the summer transfer window, as reported in April, but a deal never materialized.
“From what I hear the two players they want are Bellingham and Declan Rice, that’s what I’ve been told,” he told Football Insider.
“Two players like that would be a different class for Liverpool because I think the legs are going. [James] Milner can’t go on forever. No matter how much he wants to. [Jordan] Henderson, he pulls all the strings but he’s getting injured more and more. Harvey Elliott is a good one for the future but not now.
“Could they compete with Real Madrid for Bellingham? Yeah of course they could. It just depends on what Bellingham wants.
“Does he want to come back to the best league in the world? I think that’ll be the draw for him. If he goes there and doesn’t get games for England then there’s something wrong with Gareth.“
