England midfield sensation interests Chelsea ahead of potential move
Chelsea are thinking about a late swoop for Borussia Dortmund prodigy Jude Bellingham during this transfer market, according to reports.
He has taken little time to settle into life in Bundesliga having arrived at BVB from Birmingham City last year.
The 18-year-old star reportedly snubbed approach from Manchester United to complete a transfer to the German giants – and now the Blues have been tipped to launch a move for the teenager before the market slams shut.
According to the Daily Star, Blues chairman Roman Abramovich is keen to seal a deal for the England international, but only if his club fail to lure Declan Rice away from London rivals West Ham United.

The 23-year-old star finally departed his boyhood club after months of questions and debate over his long-term future.
The striker eventually decided upon signing for Roma, one of several clubs that were interested in his services.

They also reportedly retain the right to purchase the player outright for €10 million (£8.5 million) should the South American impress back in his homeland.
He has long been out of favour at Chelsea having been sent out on five consecutive loan stints since his arrival from Fluminense in 2015.
