Here is why Chelsea should not bother to buy Dortmund Sensation Jude Bellingham.
Former Chelsea player Frank Leobuf have stated that Chelsea may be going the wrong direction if they decided to buy Dortmund Jude Bellingham and here is why.
There was a lot of moaning after the tie from a few of the Dortmund players who felt hard done by, one of them being England international Jude Bellingham who was seen well and truly throwing his toys out the pram at the end of the game.
Bellingham is going to be the subject of a big money move come the end of the season, with many of the big clubs lining up to sign him. Chelsea have been linked, but Bellingham would not come cheap, with a fee of £120m being floated around in the rumour mills.
Former Chelsea captain Frank Leboeuf believes Chelsea should prioritise other areas instead of Bellingham.

Writing in his exclusive column for Si & Dan Talk Chelsea, Leboeuf said: “[Bellingham’s] not the priority for me, because of what I said before about Kai Havertz not being a striker. WE NEED A STRIKER!!
“If you have to spend £120m, I’m sorry, that should not be on Bellingham, that should be on a striker.
“There aren’t many top options around though. Victor Osimhen maybe, Harry Kane if that’s possible. Will he come? That’s another question. I want to see a player like that, a real striker. That’s the main target because Chelsea has to score goals. We need a Karim Benzema or a Kane.”
