Jamie Redknapp says ‘incredible’ player is Liverpool’s ‘dream’ signing

Speaking on the Sky Sports Football podcast, Jamie Redknapp discussed Jude Bellingham and the prospect of the youngster joining Liverpool.

The England international has been making waves in Germany for two years, and is widely believed to leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2023.

Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for the former Birmingham City man, and just this week it was claimed they were favorites for his signature.

Redknapp himself thinks Bellingham would be a dream signing for his former club, saying the teenager is a ‘generational player’.

Liverpool’s dream signing

Redknapp has given his opinion on Liverpool’s interest in Bellingham.

“Every Liverpool and Premier League fan’s dream to some extent is for Jude Bellingham to come. He would be the person who would fit into that midfield, he’s a generational player and he’s a footballer. unbelievable. Klopp, I imagine, would have his heart set on him,” Redknapp said.

Not proven

Jude Bellingham appears to be a talented player, but it’s a bit too early to call him a ‘generational’ talent.

Let’s not forget that about two years ago the same kind of things were being said about Jadon Sancho while he was playing for Borussia Dortmund – and it didn’t happen for him in the Premier League.

The Bundesliga’s past is littered with players who couldn’t cut the mustard in the Premier League. The likes of Timo Werner, Sancho, Sebastien Haller and Shinji Kagawa to name a few.

Of course, everyone hopes Bellingham doesn’t follow this trend, but it seems a bit of a stretch to start throwing these labels around for teenagers who haven’t played a minute of Premier League football.

Could Bellingham be the answer to Liverpool’s problems? If it continues to develop as it has, yes. But is it the infallible solution? Not by far.
