Scouting Report on Jude Bellingham
Why Everyone Wants Him
It seems like almost every top club in Europe is being linked with Jude Bellingham. Though the journalists in England suggest that Liverpool are leading the race, the more it becomes apparent, the more the price goes up, unless the Reds have an agreement already lined up for a move next summer.

Introduction - Jude Bellingham
Bellingham is a Birmingham City graduate, who made a bold decision to move to Germany and play for Borussia Dortmund in 2020. Positionally, he has and can play anywhere across the midfield, except maybe the lone defensive midfielder role.
His game involves quick coverage of the ground from box to box, passing range, runs in the opposition box with or without the ball and sturdiness defensively.
The 19-year-old has 15 goals and 20 assists in 105 appearances in all competitions for Dortmund, with an average of a direct goal contribution every three games. For a player very good in most aspects as a central midfielder, goal contributions further cement his status in that position.
