Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has admitted he’s a massive fan of Chelsea transfer target Jude Bellingham.

The 19-year-old has been in superb form for Borussia Dortmund, starting all 15 of their Bundesliga games this season and scoring seven goals in all competitions.

“I think for the viewers watching this World Cup, there’s a massive opportunity to enjoy a massive pool of players from different countries,” Gerrard told Sky Sports.

“I’ve competed against a lot of these players, your Messi’s and Ronaldo’s of this world. They’ll be the two big names with a lot of focus, but the tournament’s going to be littered with high class players.

“I’ll be focusing my attention on England, I’m really excited to watch Jude Bellingham, I’m a massive fan of him. I think the next 10 or 15 years, he’s going to become an England superstar.

“There’s a lot of Premier League players out at the World Cup and they’ll be hoping they’re on the right side of a successful tournament.”
