Jude Bellingham continued his meteoric rise on Wednesday, by scoring his third goal of the season during Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League group stage tie with Manchester City. 

The former Birmingham City youngster put the visitors ahead shortly after half-time at The Etihad, and has now netted in both of Dortmund’s European matches this term.

Bellingham, 19, could only watch on though as former teammate Erling Haaland bagged all three points for City with a spectacular acrobatic effort five minutes from time.

Haaland left Dortmund over the summer, and there is growing speculation that Bellingham may soon do the same.

As reported by The Sun, Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool are all seriously interested in acquiring the England international next summer.

It was suggested that interest was declared in Bellingham over the summer, but Dortmund were adamant that they would not allow two of their most important players to depart during the same window, it is suggested.

Bellingham could soon be playing against Man City more regularly

The report suggests that The Blues, who spent a record amount of money during the recent summer window, are already preparing offers for the player.

It is claimed that Bellingham, who has been capped 15 times by England at senior level, will cost more than £100 million if he is to be sold.

Liverpool have been linked with the player in the past and their desperation to add midfield reinforcements has now reportedly prompted The Reds to once again show an interest in the player.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are likely to be on the hunt for a midfielder next summer with both N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic having struggled regularly with injuries of late.

Jorginho is also set to be out of contract next summer, and it remains uncertain as to whether or not the Italian will extend his stay in London.

Manchester United’s interest in the player likely follows their failed pursuit of Frenkie de Jong, who was heavily linked with a move to The Red Devils all summer but ultimately stayed put in Barcelona.

United did sign Christian Eriksen and Casemiro, but the opportunity to land a player as talented and young as Bellingham may prove too tempting.
