The competition to sign Jude Bellingham should include Arsenal in the coming summer.
Most of the elite clubs in the Premier League have been linked to a move for Jude Bellingham. Arsenal has asserted that they are the ideal team for him, even though they are not currently being mentioned as a potential destination.
Bellingham is reportedly planning to relocate back to England after the current campaign. Despite not turning 20 until next June, he has already made more than 100 appearances in his two-and-a-half years at Borussia Dortmund.
He is England’s upcoming football superstar. The midfielder scored his first goal at the international level in England’s resounding World Cup victory over Iran on Monday. He is currently having the best goal-scoring season of his career.
Bellingham would probably command a price well over £100 million, but he would be priceless. And for three reasons, he would be the ideal addition to Mikel Arteta’s team if Arsenal only makes one signing in the upcoming summer.
Bellingham has drawn significant attention from both Liverpool and Manchester United. However, they currently have a lower chance than the Gunners of finishing in the top four this season.
Under Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool is losing ground, while United is still getting its bearings during the Erik ten Hag era. Despite having a five-point lead over the competition in the Premier League, Arsenal supporters are not getting too excited about their team’s ascent.
The youthfulness of Arteta’s team is another factor that makes Arsenal the ideal team for Bellingham. This season, the Spaniard has started 14 of the 24 youngest starting XIs in the Premier League.
Arsenal is performing admirably, but time is very much on their side. It seems like the more time they spend playing together, the better they will become.
Finally, Bellingham would have a starting position at Arsenal secured. Would he start right away under Pep Guardiola? Manchester City has the financial muscle to outbid anyone in England.
Next summer, Bellingham will turn 20; he has plenty of time to make a Galactico-style transfer to Real Madrid later in his career. However, for the time being, Arsenal might be the ideal venue for his introduction to Premier League football.
