Arsenal ‘admire’ Jude Bellingham

 According to The Athletic Arsenal ‘admire’ Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham but would be ‘considerable underdogs’ should they join the race to sign him.

During a Q&A, The Athletic were asked if Arsenal would become a ‘viable option’ for the 19-year-old if they win the Premier League title this term.

Gunners correspondent James McNicholas admitted that Bellingham is a ‘perfect fit’ for Arteta’s project and also emphasises how well-suited he is for the No. 8 role in the Spanish manager’s midfield three.

‘It goes without saying that Bellingham is admired by Arsenal’s recruitment department,’ he adds; however, there are two issues mentioned: ‘the price, and the competition’.

It would be ‘difficult’ for Arsenal to convince Bellingham and his team that the Emirates is the place to be, and should they throw their hat in the ring, ‘they may find themselves considerable underdogs’, McNicholas adds.

What a perfect signing he would be for Arteta’s young team. We can only dream…
