Expert: Tottenham 'in the mix' to sign Jude Bellingham amid '£125m' claim

Tottenham should try and beat Liverpool to the signing of Jude Bellingham this summer

That is according to Spurs expert John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.

Football Insider revealed last week (17 November) that Liverpool are willing to commit a huge sum to securing the landmark signing of the Dortmund superstar.

Rival clubs including Real Madrid, Man City and Chelsea are all interested – but it is understood that the Merseysiders are in “pole position” after forging a strong relationship with Bellingham’s camp.

Wenham wants to see Tottenham throw their hat into the ring.

“Everybody will want him this summer and from a Tottenham point of view I hope we are in the mix, we should be,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“I hope we are not just accepting defeat. When you have the best stadium in the Premier League, more revenue and profit than Arsenal, a lower wage bill than Arsenal, you are putting yourself at the table.

“I hope without the excuses of Covid, the economic crisis and the stadium being built, we have Champions League money now, we should be asking the question.

“If the answer is no, then fine. But put your hand up and ask. That’s my point of view. From a Dortmund point of view, I would expect him to continue developing as he is.

“The £26million they paid for him looks an absolute steal now and they look like they are going to return their money four or maybe even five times.

“£125million maybe.”
