Jamie Carragher thinks there will be an ‘auction’ for Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham next summer, and wants his former club Liverpool to win it.
The 19-year-old has been enhancing his reputation at Dortmund since his move from Birmingham City in 2020.
were interested in the midfielder before his move to Germany, but he ended up joining the Bundesliga club and is thriving there.
Bellingham is considered one of the most promising players in Europe, and Carragher believes he would be a top asset for many sides.
But the Liverpool legend is hoping his former club will be the ones to win the race for the player’s signature.
‘Well I think the one everyone talks about is Jude Bellingham and I don’t think it’s just his ability, Carragher told .
‘I think it’s his age and the fact if you got him, spent big money on him, he would hopefully be at your club.
‘It’s not just Liverpool, I’m sure Man City, Man United are looking at him, all the other top clubs, when you’re buying him you’re thinking we could have a player for the next 10 or 12 years, I think that’s the thinking.
‘His ability is really good and it’s almost the potential of what he could become, could he become like Kevin de Bruyne is now basically – which is for me – the best player in the Premier League, you look at him in that midfield position and you just think wow.
‘Maybe Man City are thinking he could replace De Bruyne or Liverpool could bring him in and he can add something or revolutionise Man United’s midfield.
‘I think he’s the one that stands out for everybody, I think there will be an auction next summer and I hope Liverpool win it, fingers crossed.’
