Liverpool are apparently interested in signing Birmingham midfielder George Hall, who has been compared to Jude Bellingham
Hall, 18, came through the Blues development system and has played regularly in the first team under John Eustace this season.
Since making his senior debut in January, he has made 20 appearances for the club, including 18 this season.
He has one goal and one assist to his record, scoring his first senior goal in an August 1-1 tie with Watford.
Manager Eustace praised him as a “great player,” and compared his abilities to those of other young players in the league.
He elaborated: “George Hall is one of the league’s best young players in my opinion. He’s a very efficient player, whether he starts or comes off the bench.”
Hall has already drawn similarities to Bellingham, who made his senior debut for the club when he was 16 years old. Paul Robinson, a former Leeds and England goalkeeper, feels he can follow in Bellingham’s footsteps and play at the top level.
Bellingham was only at St. Andrew’s for a season before joining Borussia Dortmund, and his performances at both the local and international levels have piqued the interest of some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
Liverpool is one of those clubs, and while they are still interested in Bellingham, they are also apparently interested in a potential successor at the Blues.
Liverpool is interested in acquiring George Hall.
Liverpool have joined Leeds and Everton in their pursuit of Hall, according to the Daily Mail, though Eustace prefers to keep him at Birmingham.
Given that the Reds have researched the Championship market on numerous times in recent seasons, a move for the kid would not be surprising.
When they were at Fulham, they brought in Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho, who were both in the second tier at the time. Klopp’s squad also signed Preston North End midfielder Ben Davies in 2021, albeit he did not make a senior game for the club.
Any deal for Hall, though, could be complicated by Everton, according to the same source, who claims the Toffees consider him as a player who can play for them right away.
The England youth international may have to make a huge decision in January as teams ramp up their efforts to sign him.
