Asked whether it would be a major coup if Liverpool could seal a deal for the 18-year-old, Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “It would be.
“But I’m sure it’s going to cost them a lot of money.
“Dortmund are in a good position, he’s probably happy there, he’s playing every week. It’s going to cost a lot of money to get him out of Dortmund.
“It depends what they’ve got available but I think it would suit their team as a number eight. He would suit them, definitely.”
Bellingham has already won eight international caps and became the youngest ever England player to feature at a major tournament at the European Championship this summer.
The former Birmingham City player has played 51 times for Dortmund, including 10 appearances in the Champions League.
