Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham is “happy” in Germany and won’t force a move away from the Bundesliga side, according to the Daily Star.
The newspaper claims that Manchester City have joined Liverpool and other Premier League teams in pursuing the teenager, with manager Pep Guardiola said to be a big fan.
Bellingham, who is also reportedly on Chelsea and Bayern Munich’s radar, has looked impressive for club and country despite only being 18 years of age. He has already made 96 appearances in his senior career, having also been capped eight times by England.
Journalists in Germany, though, claim Dortmund would be very reluctant to sell Bellingham, with the German club keen to keep hold of one of their prized assets.
A figure of £80m has been suggested as a possible price tag for the England international, and we shall see whether City are prepared to invest such a large sum in the player.
