Paul Ince has explained that Liverpool transfer target Jude Bellingham has ‘all the attributes’ in his locker to be ‘world class’. as he told Sky Sports Football.
The former England midfielder added that both the Borussia Dortmund star and Declan Rice still have “a long way to go” before people can put that label over their heads.
Both Bellingham and Rice started in the middle of the park for England on Tuesday night as the Three Lions flew past Ivory Coast in a friendly.
It was England’s 18-year-old superstar who took the Man of the Match award as he demonstrated maturity and quality beyond his age.
Ince loves what Bellingham brings to the table, adding that one day he may be on the path to becoming a “world-class” player.
“He’s a great prospect,” said Ince. “He has all the qualities you need for a world-class player.
“People use the word world class very, very lightly. Some of the things he does, he has the qualities to be. It’s about keeping your feet on the ground.
“The same goes for Declan Rice. The beginnings of your career. You have a long, long road ahead of you. If you can play at the highest level for 10-15 years, then you become a world-class player.”
Bellingham is currently plying his trade in Dortmund colors in Germany but it seems English clubs are trying to lure him home.
Liverpool will appear to be planning an £85million move for the all-action midfielder during the summer transfer window. according to German outlet picture.
Dortmund have already proven that if the right price is put on the table for their star players, they will sell them.
So if the Reds are serious about securing Bellingham’s talents and he could provide service to a team with well over decades, then they will have a serious player on their hands.
