Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham admits he can’t wait to play alongside Liverpool target Declan Rice for England tonight.
The 19-year-old, who is also a top target for the Reds, praised the West Ham captain in an interview with Channel 4 prior to the Three Lions’ Euro 2024 qualifier against Italy. The West Ham captain is scheduled to partner with Kalvin Phillips in the middle of the field.
Bellingham stated, “I’m really looking forward to that, [playing with them].”
“Two quality players. I’ve played with them both independently, and now I have the opportunity to do it simultaneously.
We all have unique qualities that can compliment one another, which is a wonderful thing.
According to journalist Ben Jacobs, Liverpool are still totally set on signing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham this summer.
The Merseyside club are’really keen,’ according to Italian reporter Rudy Galetti, in luring Rice to Anfield, and the Hammers are anticipated to profit from the move.
Bellingham is pleased to perform with Rice
In a perfect world, Bellingham and Rice would start for Liverpool together the next season.
Nevertheless, that is only a fantasy, as the club aren’t sure to sign either of them.
The Dortmund superstar is expected to cost more than £110 million, while the Irons skipper might sell for about £70 million.
The Reds do need to recruit more midfield players this summer, but it’s highly doubtful that FSG would be prepared to sign Bellingham or Rice if they both already have contracts.
In actuality, Jürgen Klopp is likely to concentrate his efforts on signing the 19-year-old because he has been courting him for the past year.
The Premier League star would also be a fantastic addition, so the team shouldn’t fully rule out the possibility.

Report – Liverpool’s £50million bid will be accepted
The most recent development in Liverpool’s interest in Ruben Neves’ services is intriguing.
We have reported that the Reds are among the favorites to sign the Portuguese playmaker during the summer transfer window.
Liverpool has made a high offer to sign a £97 million star, according to News – Marca.
Today, Football Insider have claimed that Wolverhampton Wanderers will accept a deal around £50million from Liverpool to trade the former Liga Nos midfielder.
According to reports, Wolves would want between 40 and 50 million and between 50 and 60 million if they could avoid being dropped to the Championship.
The Seleccao star’s contract with the Molineux team will expire on June 30, 2024, therefore it is likely that he will leave this year.
The 26-year-old is well known for his superb ball control, accuracy, and precision when passing.
Neves can provide great long passes, hold on to the ball under constant pressure and execute short passes in tight spaces.
The former Porto star is talented and able to open up scoring chances for his teammates in the final third.
He has proven his strong and precise long-range shooting several times in the Premier League.
The Merseysiders splashed a lot of cash on Naby Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain but the midfielders have spent majority of their time on the treatment table since moving to Anfield.
In a few months, the pair will be free, and Klopp will need to find replacements to improve the department’s quality and depth, which have not been improved since 2020.
Should Liverpool offer £50 million to entice Neves, in your opinion?
