Henderson hopes Bellingham joins him at Liverpool

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson expressed that it would be “amazing” to have Jude Bellingham join him at Anfield, but he emphasized that the teenager should select the club that is most suitable for him.

During his time at Borussia Dortmund, Bellingham has emerged as one of the most promising talents in football, and he also had a remarkable World Cup alongside Henderson for England last year.

Several clubs, including Liverpool, Manchester City, and Real Madrid, have been linked to the 19-year-old midfielder.

However, recent reports indicate that Liverpool may find it difficult to afford a deal if the latter two clubs engage in a bidding war, since Bellingham is expected to demand a fee of over £100 million.

Bellingham has impressed Henderson, along with many others, and while he wishes to play alongside him for both club and country, he stressed that the youngster needs to prioritize his own interests.

“I just want him to be the best player he can be – of course, if it ended up being Liverpool that would be amazing,” Henderson said. “But it’s got to be right for him, and it’s going to be every club you can think of that will want him.

“He has to think about himself and make sure he makes the right decision for his career. But there’s going to be one lucky club that will end up getting him, whether that is now or in a year or two it will be a lucky club.”

“His potential is through the roof, really. He can be as good as he wants to be – but he’s got the right mentality, which is the most important thing.

“He is a really special player and I can’t believe his age and his mentality, how he applies himself to training and the games, everything. I’ve never seen it before, so I’m pretty confident that he’ll be a pretty good player for many years to come.

“Honestly, I can’t believe his age, how mature he plays, how mature he is off the pitch, in the gym, training, everything, recovery day after the game.

“He’s a special player, but I’ve said it before we just need to be careful not to apply too much pressure on him but let him play football. When you let him play football you can see what he does for Dortmund, you can see what he does here for England.”
