- Jude Bellingham has emerged as a summer transfer target for a number of Premier League sides
- The Borussia Dortmund midfielder is poised to leave the club in the summer
- In 19 appearances this season, the teenage sensation has nine goals and two assists for his side
One of the Premier League giants has been dealt a blow, after they were ruled out of the race to sign teenage sensation Jude Bellingham.
Bellingham has over the last few months emerged as one of the hottest prospects in football, and his performances for Dortmund have attracted interest from the big guns in Europe.
As at Wednesday, November 8, Bellingham is being heavily linked with a move to the Premier League.
One of the major suitors for the 19-year-old has been Liverpool, who could use some reinforcements in midfield.

However, Borussia Dortmund knows what they have at their disposal and will not be letting the young star leave for cheap.
According to TeamTalk, Bellingham is currently valued at £130m (€150m).
This will come as a huge blow to new Chelsea owner Todd Boehly, who has been keeping tabs on Bellingham and was putting structures in place to acquire him.
Another possible destination for Bellingham is Manchester City, who can easily match Dortmund’s valuation.
The fact that Bellingham enjoys a close relationship with Erling Haaland could also play a factor in a potential move to Etihad.

FSG tried to sell the club in the past but pulled out, and it remains to be seen if they can get a deal done if a suitable buyer bids.
The group bought Liverpool in 2010 from Americans George Gillett Jnr and Tom Hicks, who bought it in 2007 for £218.9 million.
However, success evaded the Reds under FSG until they hired Jurgen Klopp in 2015.
