Arsenal told England star is an ideal replacement for Xhaka

Jude Bellingham is England’s latest midfield star. Could he become the next top Englishman Arsenal sign?

The Borussia Dortmund man plays with a maturity beyond his age and has been a star for his country at the World Cup.

Prior to the competition, he was considered one of the best midfielders in Europe.

The likes of Liverpool and Real Madrid were favourites to sign him, but the competition is likely to increase with his fine performances at the WC.

Goal’s Charles Watts has now told the Gunners he will be the ideal replacement for Granit Xhaka.

He writes in his column:

“He fits the bill perfectly when it comes to the profile of player that the Gunners now target under the watch of Mikel Arteta and sporting director Edu, given his age and technical ability.

“And with Granit Xhaka now into his 30s, Bellingham would be the ideal long-term replacement for the Switzerland captain to play in one of the No.8 roles that Arteta likes to operate with in his 4-3-3 system.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Bellingham has developed into a world-class talent in the last few seasons and will do a good job for us.

However, the quality of the clubs looking to sign him means he is unlikely to join us.

If we win the league and become one of the best in Europe, we could stand a chance, but he may have left BVB before then.

  1. Strongly agree with the writer of this article, but I would go one foot further, sign him in January and we win the league.

  2. I don’t think Arsenal signing Jude Belingham next January transfer window is feasible. This is because I don’t see Arsenal paying his reported price tag of in excess of over £100m. Which is being speculated around as the transfer fee that he commands to get him signed from his Borossia Dortmund club side. More so, as Arsenal have never pay a £100m in transfer cost fee to sign a new player before.
    I know there is the first time to do something in life. But even then, I don’t see the Gunners splashing over £100m on Belingham next January or even next summer. For, it’s only Man City, Chelsea or Man Utd that can afford such a splashing of big big money to shgn a new player in a transfer window.
    But rightnow, in my own view. I think Arsenal are at the moment okay with the quality of midfield playing personnel they have in their midfield ranks.. But despite their being okay in this area, they look to still be in need to further boost their midfield and striker options by doing a top top quality new Dmf and striker signings next January window. So that they will have their first team squad strengthened properly as they goin into the 2nd half of the season campaign. Leaving no any stones unturned in the team to refresh it as they challenge for a treble of titles win this season. Which is still ON for Arsenal to win them all this season..

  3. Belingham seriously

    One goal and he’s the best thing since sliced bread.

    Poor against USA.
    I’ve never seen the guy play any good bar Iran game.

    Would be a terrible signing for us for that amount of money.
    And he’s lightweight for the Premier.

    1. I agree on that, but he has huge potential, he has to go to the right club, look at Sancho with Man Utd

  4. Dude is 19 yes old and from what I’ve seen of him, doesn’t have much of an engine. £100 mil is Dortmund taking the pizz…IJS

    1. Possibly the single most risible analysis of a really top class player I have ever seen anywhere!

      We will plainly NOT be buying him, but to write as you have done, beggars belief!

  5. Am not sure arsenal can paid £100 for Bellingham because gunner will not ready to start big big players in the team it’s not in the January the whole baller time.
    arsenal were not in the list that adorable wit it to bought a that has rich £60+

  6. No chance, great player but too expensive and wages will be prohibitive, plus every major club in the world wants him.

  7. Why can’t we find and nurture our own Bellingham? We hav one of the best scout to find them and one of the best coaching crew to nurture them.
