Boehly to sign £130m England midfielder for Chelsea
Chelsea have joined the race to sign Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham, according to The Telegraph.
The Bellingham is one of Europe’s hottest properties and will be the subject of a tug of war next summer.
The likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Real Madrid are all believed to be keen on the 19-year-old.
Bellingham’s stock could rise further at the 2022 World Cup, where he is expected to form a key part of England’s midfield.
The player is valued at around £130 million by Dortmund, who will be keen on retaining one of their prized assets.
Chelsea splashed out more than £270m in a record transfer spend in the summer, but new owner Todd Boehly is looking to beef up the squad with more players.
Midfield is likely to be a priority area for Boehly’s Clearlake Capital ownership during the transfer window next year.
