‘No fear’: Declan Rice asserts that ‘exceptional’ star wanted by Liverpool has ‘got everything’ 

Declan Rice stated to TalkSPORT that rumoured Liverpool target Jude Bellingham possesses “everything”

Liverpool’s interest in the “exceptional” Bellingham has been well-documented, and it appears likely that Jurgen Klopp’s squad will move for the Borussia Dortmund teen.

Since arriving to Germany from Birmingham City, the 19-year-old is regarded as one of the most talented midfielders in Europe and has produced some impressive performances.

Rice, who plays alongside the youngster for England, has lauded the Dortmund player.

Rice admits Bellingham has ‘got everything’ 

Rice told TalkSPORT that he intends to play alongside Bellingham for England for the foreseeable future.

“I think he’s energetic, he’s strong, self-belief, no fear. He’s got everything,” Rice said. 

“As a 19-year-old now, obviously he’s been training with us since he was 18, but he’s a man. Played on the big occasions already, he’s ready to play.

“Obviously it’s down to the manager to pick what he thinks is best. When I played with Jude, I loved it. 

“It takes time to settle with a partner, you’re not going to get that connection straight away but over time you do. 

“Even with all the other midfielders in the squad, I hope that we can go on for the next 10 years and create a special bond in the middle of the pitch.

“With Jude, if it’s him I get to play with, or Hendo [Jordan Henderson], or Kalv [Kalvin Phillips], even if I’m not involved I hope everyone does well because that’s what you need as a squad. 

“You need a squad and you need everyone to be at it and you need be ready whenever you’re called upon.” 

Liverpool has been linked to a move for Bellingham for some time, and it is probable that he will leave Dortmund in the future.

Klopp has signed Arthur Melo on a season-long loan from Juventus, but this appears to be a temporary rather than permanent addition.

If Bellingham becomes available in the future, Klopp will undoubtedly have stiff competition to recruit the gifted midfielder.
