Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has had some high praise for Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham, who has been linked with a move to the Premier League.

The England international is most likely to set to be involved in a bidding war at the end of the season, with Dortmund reportedly bracing themselves for a departure.

The Reds are one of the sides linked with a move for the 19-year-old, as Klopp is keen on signing a new midfielder for the 2023/2024 season.

'Versatile' Bellingham Compared To Zidane

While Klopp did not want to go into the money aspect about Bellingham, he did wax lyrical about the midfielder's overall game.

"I don’t like to always talk about money when we talk about a player like Jude. I think everybody agrees he’s just exceptional. "

I imagine somebody who has no clue about football, or who didn’t watch it for a while, if you asked them ‘how old do you think Jude Bellingham is?’ nobody would get even close! They’d say ‘28, 29’ or whatever, because he’s that mature.

"He played an exceptional World Cup. Exceptional.

"He’s good at so many things and has to improve in so many other things, but if I had to describe him I would say that the things he can do already are difficult to learn, and the things has has to improve are easy to learn. That makes him a really good player!"
