Borussia Dortmund starlet “should join Liverpool instead of Chelsea”- Former Blues star

Jude Bellingham ‘should join Liverpool instead of Chelsea’, according to former Blues star Glen Johnson.

The Borussia Dortmund ace has been linked with a January move to the West Londoners but Johnson reckons the England international would be better of at Anfield where he would be ‘nurtured’.

Bellingham, 18, has been at Dortmund little more than a year but has impressed since breaking into the first-team.

He’s scored twice and provided five assists in 11 matches for the Bundesliga side this season.

And his performances last campaign earned him a call-up to England’s Euro 2020 squad and led to Chelsea’s interest.

SunSport exclusively revealed last month Manchester United are in pole position to sign the former Birmingham midfielder.

But when asked which of the Premier League’s biggest clubs would be the best destination for Bellingham, Johnson picked his most recent former team Liverpool.

The 37-year-old – who spent four years at Chelsea and six at Anfield – told Betting Odds: “I’d probably say Liverpool.”
