Liverpool, Manchester City and Newcastle are in the race to sign Jobe Bellingham, according to reports, and an impressive six-minute compilation shows why he is one of the most sought after talents in Europe.
Bellingham slotted in with ease during those displays and as a result, the teenager has captured the attention of several clubs across Europe, including last season's FA Cup and Carabao Cup winners, Liverpool.
In fact, Jurgen Klopp's side are said to be 'leading the race' to sign Bellingham, according to The Mirror.
They suggest Liverpool are the 'early front-runners' after they asked to be kept informed of the youngster’s situation at St Andrew's.
Earlier this year, Bellingham followed in the footsteps of his brother, Jude, by signing his first professional contract with the Blues.
Birmingham, of course, retired the number 22 jersey after the England international left his boyhood club for Borussia Dortmund in 2020 – a decision that was mocked by many, but fans are beginning to understand why this winter.
So what's all the hype about? Well, the versatile Jobe can play in multiple positions across the midfield, and has even played as a centre-forward in Birmingham's youth set-up.

He has all the tools to carry the ball out from deep, just like his older brother Jude, who also has plenty of suitors after impressing at Borussia Dortmund of late.
As you can see in the below YouTube compilation, Jobe's vision to see a pass is certainly admirable.
"It's a dream for me. But it's up to him," he told Sky Germany. "I hope that he will develop further as a boy and as a player."
