Arsenal are not thought to be among the clubs most likely to sign England midfielder Jude Bellingham this summer
According to The Telegraph, Bellingham, despite being highly regarded within Arsenal, is unlikely to be a player on the Gunners’ payroll.
According to the Telegraph, Arsenal’s offer to sign Bellingham will be too high. A fee of £100 million or more is expected, as well as a sizable wage package. Overall, the club’s new signing Bellingham is expected to cost around £200 million.
Arsenal’s admission of defeat in the Bellingham race could open the door for Liverpool. The Reds have long admired the England international. Indeed, Bellingham is open to joining Liverpool, despite their slim chances of winning the Champions League.
In recent seasons, Bellingham has emerged as a genuine’superstar’ in European football.
He further enhanced his reputation with a strong World Cup performance and was instrumental and impressive in a big win in Italy during the recent international break.
Arsenal, on the other hand, is expected to select Declan Rice as their preferred midfielder.
TBR Opinion: Bellingham to Arsenal would definitely turn heads.
It can’t be completely ruled out because, in football, anything is possible. If Arsenal does sign Jude Bellingham, it will be a surprise.
There has been so much speculation about where he might go and so little about Arsenal that if he did turn up at The Emirates, it would create quite a stir.
Of course, winning the league would help their case. Arsenal have been fantastic all season, and if they win the title, Bellingham may reconsider.
But one thing is certain: whoever acquires Bellingham will be getting a genuine world-class talent.
