Transfer Talk: Blues boss Potter wants brilliant Bellingham
Chelsea are set to join the race to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.
Bellingham, 19, is one of the most highly-regarded players in Europe having impressed with Dortmund and in his 15 appearances for England.
A huge summer of change at Stamford Bridge has seen new American owner Todd Boehly sign off over £250m of incoming transfers, strengthening defensive and attacking areas of the squad.
Ex-boss Thomas Tuchel was also replaced by Graham Potter last week, with the English coach said to be a huge admirer of Bellingham.
Finding long-term replacements for N’Golo Kante and Jorginho in the West Londoners’ engine room is expected to be a priority for the former Brighton manager next summer.
Bellingham is contracted to BVB until 2025 however and Chelsea will need to table a huge bid to outmuscle their Premier League rivals.
