Liverpool and Chelsea have four weeks to win the transfer war or risk losing a significant amount of funds

Having failed to pry him away from Signal Iduna Park in the summer, those interested in signing Jude Bellingham must reach a deal with Borussia Dortmund during the January transfer window before his value increases.

Bellingham is one of the most exciting young footballers in the world, so last week’s announcement that Barcelona playmaker Gavi had won the 2022 Golden Boy award over him raised many eyebrows.

However, the teenager appears poised to reverse the positions the following time around.

The former Birmingham City star has scored seven goals in all competitions for Dortmund, sometimes wearing the captain’s armband and excelling in the Champions League.

Those interested in the 19-year-old, who is currently valued at approximately £100 million, must act quickly or be priced out of a deal.

Bellingham will likely be paired with West Ham captain Declan Rice in a two-man midfield for England at the World Cup.

This is a position in which the playmaker has excelled domestically; if he can replicate this success on the international stage, his value will soar.

 Manchester United, a long-time admirer of the midfielder, attempted to bring him to Old Trafford before he joined Borussia Dortmund. Liverpool and Chelsea have both been heavily linked with Bellingham in recent weeks.

Speaking about the player’s value, Fabrizio Romano told CaughtOffside: “Liverpool, Chelsea, Man City, Man United and, of course, Real Madrid really want him. I think the precise fee will be clear after the World Cup, not now; but for sure, more than €100m. His value is rising and I think it’s absolutely right: he’s showing quality, leadership, talent, he’s more than a midfielder.”

After the conclusion of the winter competition, exceptional performances at the World Cup will invariably result in a rise in the value of players, as has always been the case.

Thus, the aforementioned clubs with an interest in Bellingham have approximately four weeks to gauge interest and lay the groundwork for a deal to take place on January 1.

With N’Golo Kante and Jorginho’s contracts expiring at the end of the season, Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is eager to welcome a marquee signing to Stamford Bridge and could view the England international as the ideal long-term addition for Graham Potter to work with.

Though Liverpool’s limited transfer activity suggested that they are also waiting for the right time to splash the cash, their aging midfield options are cause for concern.

Bellingham will, of course, have his preferences, and his preference for the Bundesliga over United suggests that he is not destined for a move to the Premier League, assuming that Dortmund do not demand an exorbitant transfer fee for their star player.
