Bellingham has turn out to be probably the most sought-after players in world football lately following his performances for Borussia Dortmund. At just 19 years old he’s seen as someone who can go on to be a midfield mainstay for a minimum of the following decade with many considering him to be something of a generational talent.
His performances on the World Cup only intensified speculation surrounding his future and it appears developments in Qatar have now put Liverpool into the driving seat. The Mirror reports that the unlikely bromance the 19-year-old stuck up with Henderson through the tournament have put the Reds within the driving seat.
The Liverpool captain was using his free time in Qatar to advertise the chance of moving to Anfield. The duo were usually seen in conversation with each other while the England squad were out in public. The pair also shared a passionate embrace after Henderson scored against Senegal within the round of 16 with Bellingham using his post-match interview to hit back on the 32-year-old’s critics.

Bellingham is vastly experienced for his age having revamped 100 appearances in skilled football including 22 for England. He has already captained Dortmund on multiple occasions this season and has been widely tipped to take the armband for the Three Lions when Harry Kane retires.
It stays to be seen if Bellingham will find yourself making the move to Anfield but it surely looks increasingly likely that the Reds will manage to seal his signature.
