Bellingham has become one of the most sought-after players in world football in recent years following his performances for Borussia Dortmund. At just 19 years old he is seen as someone who can go on to be a midfield mainstay for at least the next decade with many considering him to be something of a generational talent.
His performances at the World Cup only intensified speculation surrounding his future and it appears developments in Qatar have now put Liverpool into the driving seat. The Mirror reports that the unlikely bromance the 19-year-old stuck up with Henderson during the tournament have put the Reds in the driving seat.
The Liverpool captain was using his free time in Qatar to promote the opportunity of moving to Anfield. The duo were regularly seen in conversation with one another while the England squad were out in public. The pair also shared a passionate embrace after Henderson scored against Senegal in the round of 16 with Bellingham using his post-match interview to hit back at the 32-year-old’s critics.

Bellingham is vastly experienced for his age having made over 100 appearances in professional football including 22 for England. He has already captained Dortmund on multiple occasions this season and has been widely tipped to take the armband for the Three Lions when Harry Kane retires.
It remains to be seen if Bellingham will end up making the move to Anfield but it looks increasingly likely that the Reds will manage to seal his signature.
