Chelsea keeping tabs on Jude Bellingham and ready to offer 'very preferable' deal to Borussia Dortmund

Chelsea are ready to offer Borussia Dortmund a 'very preferable' deal for Jude Bellingham, according to reports.

The England midfielder is attracting interest from top European clubs and looks certain to make a move in the summer.

Impressing in the UEFA Nations League, Bellingham's stock is only going to rise as he looks ahead to the 2022 World Cup with his nation.

The most recent reports have stated that Chelsea remain interested in a move for the midfielder.

However, things could be complicated as Dortmund demand at least £130 million for Bellingham

Chelsea were in the market for a midfielder this summer, with Denis Zakaria arriving at Stamford Bridge on Deadline Day.

However, just days later, Thomas Tuchel was dismissed as head coach of Chelsea, with Zakaria admitting that he arrived at the club in order to work under the German.

Liverpool are said to be head of the list alongside Real Madrid, Man CityMan United and the Blues, as well as European giants Real Madrid.

Sporting director Sebastian Kehl recently told the press: “Jude is very happy at the club, he is very committed to us.

“Hopefully he can stay, next season and for a long time. We try to keep our best players. Jude is one of those and we try to keep them for as long as possible.

“But in the end, money is another aspect and England pays a lot more than Germany. We have to renew our philosophy every year.”

This will have caught the attention of English clubs, with Chelsea now thought to be ready to offer their German counterparts a favourable deal.

As reported by Ben Jacobs, Chelsea are keeping tabs on Bellingham and would be prepared to structure a deal in 'very preferable manner' for the Bundesliga side.

However, Chelsea are not currently seen as front runners for the signature, which could cause an issue if they are to go after him.

The Blues are also heavily linked with a move for Edson Alvarez from Ajax as they look to add to their midfield numbers next year.

Both N'Golo Kante and Jorginho see their contracts expire at the end of the season.

And who knows, a surprise move for Bellingham could be on the cards.
