Liverpool fans will be encouraged by three recent photos that suggest Jude Bellingham will sign for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
The 19-year-old has been the star of England’s World Cup campaign so far.
The Borussia Dortmund midfielder netted in England’s opening game 6-2 rout of Iran, while he was instrumental to the Three Lions’ last-16 win over Senegal.
Bellingham demonstrated why he has become one of the most sought-after talents in world football, by providing the assist for Jordan Henderson’s opener and playing an instrumental part in the build-up for England’s second.
Moreover, by providing the assist for Henderson’s opener, Bellingham became the first teenager to set up a World Cup knockout stage goal for any side since at least 1966 - because that’s as far back as Opta’s data goes for any nation.
Bellingham has been linked with the continent’s biggest clubs in recent months, including Manchester United, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and European champions Real Madrid.
However, there have been several moments during England’s World Cup campaign that suggests the teenager is Liverpool bound.
Bellingham and Henderson celebration
Henderson lashed in the Three Lions’ opening goal in England’s knock-out match against Senegal, after a surging run and cross from Bellingham.
After the Liverpool captain opened the scoring he was quick to celebrate with his teenage provider with an intense staredown. The pair were then mobbed by their teammates.
Bellingham and Henderson have been inseparable at England’s base in Qatar, and the celebration only added to speculation linking the Merseyside giants with a move for the midfielder.
After the game, the official England Twitter account showed a picture of Henderson and Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold recreating the celebration for the Three Lions’ opening goal.
Meanwhile, a grinning Bellingham posed on the other side of the BeReal camera. The picture reiterated the growing bond between Bellingham and the Liverpool duo while in Qatar.

Alexander-Arnold and Bellingham
On Thursday Alexander-Arnold posted an Instagram photo of himself and Bellingham in Doha, Qatar, which led to speculation that he may be trying to convince the Borussia Dortmund star to make the switch to Anfield.
However, the England and Liverpool right-back played down the speculation, insisting he was merely trying to enjoy a day off with his friend.
Speaking to BBC5Live Alexander Arnold said: “I’m just going out with my mate, aren’t I? Everyone [is] saying ‘Agent Trent’, but no.”
“We went out, a few of us yesterday, we were given the day off so had a decent day out.”
