The next rising talent on their list is Jude Bellingham. That is according to Jan Aage Fjortoft, a well-connected former Sporting Director and now pundit in Germany. Yesterday the news broke that Liverpool had reached a verbal deal with Bellingham and now Fjortoft has claimed that he is the top priority for both Real Madrid and the English side next summer.
