The 18-year-old wonderkid has long since been outed as the possible next big signing for the Reds as Jurgen Klopp looks to build a team for the future whilst competing in the present.
Already a key player for both club and country, Bellingham certainly has the ability to play a leading role at the elite level for many years to come.
🚨 NEW: One player who would definitely fit Liverpool’s project is Jude Bellingham but whether they have the money to do a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s £100million-rated 18-year-old is another question altogether. #awlive [@DominicKing_DM] pic.twitter.com/y5HOl9722e

King states that the 10-cap England starlet would ‘definitely fit Liverpool’s project’ before citing a possible £100million asking price.
READ LIVERPOOL VERDICT
Signing the £67.5million valued Bellingham for the mooted £100million fee would still represent impressive value for money.
Albeit a huge initial outlay – topping anything the club has previously reached – at just 18 the best is certainly yet to come from a player already performing on the biggest stages.
As Klopp begins to further manage the game time of Thiago, Jordan Henderson and James Milner, Liverpool will need a fresh face to bolster the midfield options.
Add the mercurial talent of Bellingham to the likes of Harvey Elliott, Curtis Jones, Tyler Morton and then the Reds’ engine room is in good stead for the best part of a decade at least.
