“I’d switch 5 players for him!” Darren Bent tells Arsenal to do all they can to get England international

Darren Bent has urged Arsenal to sell some of their current players so that they can add Jude Bellingham to their squad.

Bellingham has become the latest top English youngster to break into the Three Lions team.

He currently plays for Borussia Dortmund and has been catching the attention of the likes of Liverpool and other English clubs.

He has been tipped to follow in the footstep of Jadon Sancho, who earned his first-team breakthrough at the German club and he has now returned to England with Manchester United.

Bent says if he was in the position to sign players for Arsenal, he would sell five players to land him, including Granit Xhaka.

He says Arsenal needs a player like him so much that he would give Dortmund five players plus £50million to take him to the Emirates.

Speaking on TalkSport, he said: “I’d literally switch five players for him, I’d chop in five for him.

“[Granit] Xhaka, [Mohamed] Elneny, Cedric, [Bernd] Leno, [Calum] Chambers. There’s your five and I’d give you £50million on top to get him.”

Signing him would be amidst the competition unless Arsenal returns to the top four.

  1. The man is living in cloud cuckoo land.On the subject of Bellingham, he is the finest young box to box midfielder I have seen for years.The question is, why did Arsenal not try to sign him from Birmingham? A lack of conventional scouts on the ground perhaps or simply a failure to recognise real talent when it’s close at hand.I heard Man Utd being criticised recently for not signing Bellingham rather than Sancho, a view I for one share.

    1. Yeah I must say Jude could be one in a generation sort of player,
      He as the same aura as Fab did, he’s confidences for he’s age is remarkable…..

    2. Agree Grandad, Van Dijk was another one the big clubs missed when he was at Celtic. He eventually cost Liverpool £75m a mere £61m more than the Saints paid for him!!

    3. Why would Dortmund take on those guys? They are actually good at finding great young talent(and selling it for giant profits). We should trade for their infrastructure

  2. Bent could be right. That energy in midfield would be amazing. He would be a great first signing post Arteta.
    (Moving on Chambers, Elneny, Xhaka, Cedric who were never of the level really)
