Chelsea are jumping into the battle for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham’s signature.
Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has identified Bellingham as one of his primary targets ahead of the 2023-2024 campaign, says The Sun.
Boehly – who spent £271million on new signings this summer – is said to be a big fan of the England international.
He and Chelsea’s new manager Graham Potter are eager to secure the 19-year-old’s services next summer.
However, they will face stiff competition for the Dortmund midfielder – who will cost upwards of £100m.
Liverpool have identified the Borussia Dortmund and England star as the key piece to Jurgen Klopp’s midfield puzzle. The Reds are hoping to be top of the list when Bellingham contemplates his future ahead of next season.
But they will need to fend off interest from the likes of Manchester United to secure a deal.
Erik ten Hag is interested in signing Bellingham as he is eager to strength United’s midfield line.
