Steven Gerrard admits he’s a ‘massive fan’ of Liverpool target and is ‘really excited’ to watch him at World Cup
Former Liverpool star Steven Gerrard has acknowledged that he is a “big fan” of Jude Bellingham, who is rumored to be a target for Liverpool, and has predicted that the youngster will become a “England superstar.”
Currently one of Europe’s brightest prospects, the 19-year-old is predicted to shine for England in the World Cup in Qatar.
Several European teams are reportedly considering approaches for the Borussia Dortmund star, with Liverpool one of the teams that has frequently been connected to the former Birmingham City favorite.
“I think for the viewers watching this World Cup, there’s a massive opportunity to enjoy a massive pool of players from different countries,” Gerrard said (as quoted by Liverpool Echo).
“I’ve competed against a lot of these players, your Messi’s and Ronaldo’s of this world. They’ll be the two big names with a lot of focus, but the tournament’s going to be littered with high class players.
“I’ll be focusing my attention on England, I’m really excited to watch Jude Bellingham, I’m a massive fan of him. I think the next 10 or 15 years, he’s going to become an England superstar.
“There’s a lot of Premier League players out at the World Cup and they’ll be hoping they’re on the right side of a successful tournament.”
The World Cup will certainly give Reds fans the opportunity to watch their main transfer target closely.
