But this season his form has continued to improve – he has scored 19 goals in just 37 games; Six goals and 13 goals. This form has made him a regular at English level, winning his 12th cap for England on Tuesday night.
Unsurprisingly, Liverpool are among the prospects. German newspaper picture reported This week Jurgen Klopp wants an £84.5million deal for the Dortmund ace. Manchester City’s Grealish was full of praise.
“I think he could honestly play anywhere. He could play as a six, an eight or a ten, he’s that good. I saw some of his games for Dortmund, he was brilliant in every position. I think that just shows how talented he is.”
Grealish on Bellingham: He would be a wonderful signing for Liverpool
Yes, the price is enormous. But his performance for England against Ivory Coast – a 3-0 win thanks to goals from Ollie Watkins, Raheem Sterling and Tyrone Mings – proves he’s worth every penny.
Speaking after the game, Roy Keane said Bellingham looked like he had already won 60 caps for England. The maturity of his performances at just 18 is amazing. He would give Liverpool an option for 15 years.
