Player-turned-pundit Ashley Williams wants Liverpool to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham before Chelsea and Real Madrid.
The former Wales centre-back shared his thoughts on the future of the youngster, who has impressed immensely at Dortmund, making 100 appearances since 2020.
Speaking to BBC Sport (via HITC), Williams shared his wish for young Bellingham to play in the Premier League with Liverpool, saying:
“It would be a great move if he moves anywhere because I think he’s a superb talent. What a football player. Very mature. We saw his performances for England. Very brave and he is as good as any midfielder, at the minute. If it is Liverpool, then I think it would be a really good signing for them.”
“For him? Would it be a good fit? Possibly. He seems like the type of lad that would make it work wherever he goes. But I do think someone put money down and bring him to the Premier League because I want to see him week in and week out. Go and get him. What a player. An absolute unbelievable player.”
Bellingham recently made the news after breaking a record with Borussia Dortmund in their weekend matchup against FC Koln. The midfielder became the club’s youngest-ever captain in their history, only showing how remarkable he has become at a young age.
Although he is just 19 years old, the England international has earned 17 caps for the Three Lions. He was a vital part of their run to the Euro 2020 final against Italy.
He was also a cardinal part of the Dortmund side that went on to win the DFB Pokal in 2021.
