Murphy says Jude Bellingham would be a hell of a signing for Liverpool

Danny Murphy has told talkSPORT that Jude Bellingham would be a hell of a signing for Liverpool, labelling the Borussia Dortmund youngster a super player.

Bellingham has looked destined to end up at Anfield for some time. He has, unsurprisingly, taken his game to another level since making the move to the Bundesliga giants.

And Jurgen Klopp remains a major admirer. Liverpool signed Arthur Melo on loan on transfer deadline day. And with that, the Reds remain on the lookout for a future midfield signing.

Fabrizio Romano reported that Bellingham is the top target for next summer. And Bellingham’s stock has now risen further, with the 19-year-old scoring in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Englishman rounded off the scoring with a wonderfully composed strike in a 3-0 victory over Copenhagen. Bellingham swept the ball into the bottom corner after a superb move from Dortmund.

And he went on to calmly bask in the adulation of the Westfalenstadion.

Murphy was asked about whether he would like to see the teenager end up at Liverpool in the future, with the central midfield situation remaining an issue that will need resolving further down the line. Unsurprisingly, the former Reds midfielder would be delighted to see him at Anfield.

“That would be a hell of a signing, yeah. It would change the dynamic of the midfield, in terms of he’s an attacking goalscoring midfielder,” he told talkSPORT.

“He’s a super player, some of the attributes he’s got for such a young man. I liked his celebration when he scored last night as if to say ‘here I am, look at me’.”

Bellingham will surely want to move on in the summer as he looks to take that next step. And Liverpool would be the ideal move for many.

The Reds need to keep evolving after so much success in recent years. And bringing in Bellingham would be a masterstroke as they look to keep moving the squad forward.
