Juventus are the latest club to monitor Birmingham City’s talented teenager Jude Bellingham ahead of the summer transfer window.
The 16-year-old has established himself as one of the top players in the country for his age and his form for Blues has caught the eye of several top clubs across Europe.
Chelsea and Manchester United have most recently been linked with a move for the teenager but it appears they could have competition for his signature in the form of the Italian champions.
That’s after the Daily Mail revealed Juventus have been keeping tabs on Bellingham who is still too young to sign a professional contract at St. Andrew’s.
The midfielder, who can play in various positions, starred again on Tuesday night as Pep Clotet’s men made it three wins in a row with Bellingham providing an assist for Scott Hogan who scored the only goal.
He is sure to continue in the XI for the game against Brentford at St. Andrew’s tomorrow as Blues look to continue an unlikely push for the play-offs.
QUIZ: Can you name these 13 Birmingham City January signings?
It’s no surprise to see Juventus are interested in Bellingham as he has shown this season that he has the potential to be a world star in the future.
However, you would question whether a move to the Italian side would be beneficial for the player. Firstly, they are stacked with talent and they also don’t really promote youth so it would be hard for him to get game time in the coming years.
Either way, the fact they are keen shows just how good Bellingham is and he is going to have a big decision to make very soon.
