Trent Alexander-Arnold spent his Wednesday night in Doha with Jude Bellingham – and some fans believe the Liverpool star is acting as an agent.
Bellingham has long been linked with a move to Liverpool and as his long-term future at Borussia Dortmund becomes uncertain, Reds fans will be hoping the starlet opts for a move to Anfield.
Real Madrid and Manchester City have also shown interest in the 19-year-old, but Alexander-Arnold appears to have benefited from his close ties with Bellingham during a spell of inactivity in Qatar.
After Tuesday’s 3-0 win over Wales, Southgate gave its players a day off to recuperate, with some players opting to relax by the pool while others continued to work in the gym.
In the evening, Alexander-Arnold and Bellingham strolled through Doha to take in the sights which included a walk at Raffles – an exclusive hotel open to World Cup guests and VIPs.
After their night out, Alexander-Arnold posted a photo of the couple on Twitter with the caption, “Walk around town with Bro @BellinghamJude.”
The duo have built a close relationship since Bellingham was first called up to the senior team in 2021.
Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson has also taken Bellingham under his wing and is often seen looking after the Dortmund star in the English camp, according to Three Lions defender Conor Coady.

“I like the way he plays. I like his personality, which is the most important thing. I like the way he conducts himself. I have nothing but good things to say about him. The sky is the limit for him, really,” Henderson said.
