Newcastle ‘join race’ to sign Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham

Newcastle United are reportedly the latest club to have joined the race to sign Borussia Dortmund superstar Jude Bellingham.

Since joining Dortmund from Birmingham City as a 17-year-old back in 2020, Bellingham has developed into one of the best midfielders in world football.

As a result of his meteoric rise, Bellingham is now the subject of heavy interest from the likes of Liverpool, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Manchester United.

According to German news outlet BILD, Newcastle have now registered their interest in luring the Englishman to St.James Park.

After a Saudi-led consortium took over Newcastle, they are one of the richest clubs in world football and will be targeting some of the best talents to improve their squad.

In order to part ways with Bellingham, Dortmund are set to demand a transfer fee of around £130 million.

Bellingham’s current contract does not run out until the summer of 2025 and the Bundesliga club have not given up on trying to convince the midfielder to extend his deal.

However, in order for Newcastle to have a realistic chance of landing Bellingham, they would have to maintain their fine start to the Premier League season and qualify for the Champions League.

The Magpies are currently third in the league table, three points ahead of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

BILD also reported that Chelsea are out of the running to sign Bellingham after their huge January spending exceeded £300 million.

The Stamford Bridge club broke the British transfer record after signing midfielder Enzo Fernandez from Benfica for £106.8 million.

It has been reported that Liverpool are currently the frontrunners for Bellingham’s signature, with Jurgen Klopp keen to refresh his midfield department.

The 22/23 season has been one to forget for Klopp’s men as they sit ninth with 29 points. Liverpool are 10 points off fourth place and a mammoth 21 points behind leaders Arsenal.

Where will Bellingham be playing next season? Only time will tell.
