SportBild is reporting that Birmingham City’s Jude Bellingham is set to become Borussia Dortmund's record signing this summer.
The German newspaper claims that Borussia Dortmund has ‘won the race’ to acquire the 16-year-old's services ahead of Man United, Chelsea and Liverpool.
Dortmund will pay €35m to the Championship side for his transfer, eclipsing the €30.5m Dortmund paid Bayern Munich for Mats Hummels.
Bellingham impressed BVB scouts while in action for Birmingham City this season with SportBild claiming that the report included 'his right foot is immensely present, plays with great will, never gives up’.
Bellingham’s current deal at St Andrew’s runs down in 2021 but it appears that a move to the Bundesliga is imminent, with Bellingham set to join a string of talented young Englishmen in Germany.
Bellingham has made 31 appearances in the Championship this season, scoring four goals and bagging two assists in the process.
