David Prutton wrote on his Sky Sports column about Birmingham City’s Jude Bellingham who has been linked with Arsenal.
The Telegraph reported a few weeks ago that Arsenal are among a number of clubs watching the 16-year-old. Bellingham has been a revelation this season scoring four times and picking up an assist already.
A hugely versatile player, Bellingham has played everywhere across central midfield and on both wings this season. His productivity at such a young age is remarkable and it is no surprise that the big boys are looking at him.
Prutton, like many others, has been impressed by the 16-year-old’s performances this season. The Sky Sports pundit admitted that all eyes will be on Bellingham yet again despite more experienced players playing alongside him.
He said: “Birmingham got a decent draw against Cardiff at the weekend, and once again everyone will be watching Jude Bellingham after another goal for the 16-year-old. What a season he is having!”
Arsenal have a number of young midfield options in their ranks already. However, an addition of a player of Bellingham’s potential is always a welcome sign.
The Gunners will, however, face stiff competition for the teenager with the likes of Manchester City, United and Chelsea all interested in signing him soon.
