Liverpool and England defender Trent Alexander-Arnold struggled to suppress a smile when asked about Reds-linked midfielder Jude Bellingham.

Borussia Dortmund starlet Bellingham has long been linked with a move to the German side. Liverpool are among a number of clubs linked with the 19-year-old, who scored his first goal for England at the 2022 World Cup, while Real Madrid and Manchester United have also been mentioned in the frame. of a move.

A move to Anfield could hinge on whether Jurgen Klopp’s side can fight their way into the top four by the end of the season.

However, Bellingham have previously rejected advances from Champions League clubs and some fans have read a lot into the Reds right-back’s response to questions about his international team-mate. “He’s an incredible player, especially for his age,” Alexander-Arnold told JOE. “I think deep down, only he knows his ceiling.”

“I don’t think there really is one. He can achieve anything he wants. He has everything it takes to do it.

“He’s one of those players that you love to watch, that you love to watch. The sky is the limit for him – he’s an incredible player and an incredible person.”

Bellingham is believed to be a huge admirer of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, so much so that the Reds’ mixed results so far this year haven’t necessarily deterred him from the move. Liverpool have suffered league defeats away to Brentford, Brighton and Wolves, as well as a loss to Brighton in the FA Cup and a 5-2 home win over Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 . Liverpool need midfield reinforcements with Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain both set to leave this summer when their contracts expire. However, Manchester United have also been linked with Bellingham and former Red Devils defender Rio Ferdinand has come out in favor of the youngster choosing Old Trafford over Anfield.
