"He does elite things": Ian Wright lauds reported Liverpool target

Pundit Ian Wright has recently been talking about Borussia Dortmund midfielder and reported Liverpool target Jude Bellingham.

The 18-year-old is now an established senior footballer. Therefore, the world has seen quite a bit of Bellingham.

Wright believes that the Englishman is an elite footballer. The 58-year-old further added that Bellingham is capable of producing "top-end" moments within football matches.

As quoted by HITC, Wright told his self-titled podcast the following: “Wherever Bellingham finds himself in the midfield he does elite things, he does top-end stuff.”

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

We would love to see Liverpool make a move for Bellingham. As Wright said, the midfielder is a top talent.

Bellingham has scored seven goals and registered 11 assists in 64 appearances for Borussia Dortmund.

The 18-year-old is also averaging a WhoScored player rating of 7.30 in the early stages of the 2021-22 Bundesliga campaign.

Due to Bellingham's age, he is far from the finished article. However, the Englishman will cost a bit of money.

Bellingham's contract does not expire until the summer of 2025. Therefore, a free transfer is off the table for the time being.

Bellingham possesses a current market value of €70 million. But, there is no denying that the talented youngster would be worth the aforementioned price.
