Liverpool’s transfer target will be too expensive., a former Chelsea and Aston Villa striker, is extremely impressed by following his outstanding performance for the Three Lions at the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup. But despite being Liverpool’s top target going into the winter transfer window, the Irishman thinks Bellingham falls under the category of being “too pricey” and they won’t be able to buy him.
The 19-year-old midfielder for Borussia Dortmund has been one of the top performers at the World Cup and has been England’s most reliable performer thus far. In his first FIFA World Cup campaign, he assisted on one goal and scored one himself. All of the best teams in Europe have their sights set on Bellingham, an English teenager who will be one of the biggest prospects in the 2018 transfer market.
“This kid has the world at his feet,” ex-Ireland international Cascarino stated on talkSPORT’s Weekend Sports Breakfast program. He also said: “He seems so intelligent that I can’t imagine he doesn’t win something significant along the way, like a Euros or a World Cup.” Football analysts, like Cascarino, think Bellingham’s rumored price tag of €150 million cannot be met by Premier League club Liverpool, who are reportedly the front-runners in the race to sign Bellingham.
He continued, “He has something extremely unusual about him, and that is a humbleness about him, in addition to being educated. He played well in the competition. He’s now the topic of conversation. I’ve despised it because I believe that Liverpool won’t be able to get him at this time. After all, no one will be able to. He will fall under the category of being too pricey.”
He was devastated following England’s heartbreaking 2-1 loss to the reigning champions France on Saturday, December 10. Harry Kane had the chance to tie England and France with a key penalty kick, but he missed it. However, the English youth is confident that following the World Cup defeat, his resolve is greater than ever, and he is certain to take home a significant prize with the Three Lions.
