Jude Bellingham: The Must-Have ‘Jack-of-All-Trades’ Midfielder for Liverpool This Summer
Jude Bellingham, the multi-talented midfielder, is one of the hottest names in football this summer. With top contenders, including Liverpool, Manchester City, and Real Madrid, vying for his signature, Bellingham’s talent is being recognized all over Europe.
What sets Bellingham apart from his peers is his exceptional skill set, as ranked by various ‘per 90’ statistics. He falls in the top 10% for non-penalty expected goals, passes and carries into the opposition penalty area, and tackles in the attacking third. At the same time, Bellingham ranks sixth out of 289 midfielders in Europe for ‘Progressive Actions per 90.’
With Liverpool, Manchester City, and Real Madrid all in the running for Bellingham’s signature, it’s clear that he would be a valuable addition to any team. However, Liverpool stands out as the team most in need of Bellingham’s unique abilities. The Reds have faced midfield issues all season, with a significant decrease in ball progression. Thiago, Alexander-Arnold, and Robertson have seen their progressive actions decrease over time, and Bellingham would be the ideal upgrade to fill Liverpool’s midfield gaps.
With Bellingham set to dominate headlines this summer, the question remains: which club will secure this incredible talent? Only time will tell.
