Birmingham City’s 16-year-old Jude Bellingham is already being compared to the likes of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.

Jude Bellingham is only 16 and already being linked with a big-money move to Manchester United and Chelsea.

Former Liverpool winger Jermain Pennant insists Bellingham reminds him of an old teammate. From what he has seen of the player he is a young Steven Gerrard.

In an interview with Talk Sport, he can see one of the big clubs snapping him up now just to secure such a frightening talent.

He said:

“He’s a fantastic player. He reminds me of a young Steven Gerrard.”

“He throws himself about, he can get up and down the pitch, he can score goals and assist goals, he’s got trickery.”

“A fantastic young player.”

“I’m surprised there are not more teams interested in him than just Chelsea and Manchester United because he is a really special talent.”

“What he can achieve in his career is frightening.”
