Alan Hutton has claimed Jude Bellingham could play for Liverpool for more than “ten years” if club can secure his signature.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Tottenham and Aston Villa defender urged the Reds to get a deal for the 19-year-old over the line “as soon as possible.”
On Saturday (30 July), this site revealed that Jurgen Klopp’s side are confident of agreeing a deal for Bellingham and could have an agreement in place within weeks.
Win and a goal to get things started.⚡️

Borussia Dortmund are unwilling to sell the midfielder this summer.
Therefore, Liverpool are working on a deal to bring Bellingham to Anfield as early as January of next year.
When asked for his assessment of the latest, Hutton told Football Insider: “I think Liverpool have to just go and get him.
“I think he’s brilliant. For somebody at that age to be playing at the level that he is, with no fear whatsoever. An England international, playing with Dortmund week in week out.
“I watched him against Rangers home and away and he absolutely bossed it even though Rangers won. He was a class above the rest.
“I don’t think it’s Liverpool’s weakest area. They’re very strong defensively and I think they’re ageing in midfield. I think to bring somebody in, with the character that he has, he’s got no fear, he could play there for ten plus years.
“I think if there’s any sort of deal just go and get it done. Get him in the building as soon as possible and get cracking.”
