Liverpool have been warned their chances of signing Jude Bellingham this summer are dwindling.
The Reds have been heavily linked with the 19-year-old, who has shone at Borussia Dortmund since leaving Birmingham in 2020.
Liverpool’s midfield options have struggled this season and Bellingham has been identified as a potential new signing.
However, with Jurgen Klopp’s side currently at risk of not playing Champions League football next season, former Aston Villa striker Agbonlahor believes their pursuit could be hampered.
Speaking to a Liverpool fan on talkSPORTAgbonlahor said: “I think the problem Paul is that you have been linked with Bellingham and Liverpool fans want Bellingham.
“But he’s not even going to look twice before coming to Liverpool.
“He’s going to choose Manchester City, Real Madrid, all the other teams if you don’t play in the big competitions.”
Host Jamie O’Hara asked Paul if Liverpool could sign him even if he didn’t finish in the top four, but Agbonlahor replied “Impossible, impossible”.

Liverpool have now gone four Premier League games without a win after their Lost 3-0 at Wolves.
Klopp was unable to explain what happened in the first 15 minutes of the game which saw the Reds go down 2-0.
Despite being runners-up last season, Liverpool are now tenth in the table and 11 points out of the top four.
Champions League football next season now looks like a distant prospect for them, and it could affect their chances of signing one of football’s brightest prospects.
