Chelsea are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham but face competition from Real Madrid and Liverpool.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has now revealed three Bellingham alternatives should Chelsea miss out on the Borussia Dortmund midfielder.

“I get asked a lot about Jude Bellingham at the moment, but another big-name midfielder fans seem to want to know about is Declan Rice. After all, if Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Real Madrid are all chasing Bellingham, only one of them can get him and the rest will need an alternative,” Romano explained.

“Still, for Declan Rice we have to consider and respect West Ham; they always wanted almost €150m for the midfielder and they feel protected by his current contract situation.

“For whoever misses out on Bellingham, I think we can consider Youri Tielemans as a good alternative – he’s continuing to show that he’s a top midfielder, and he looks set to be on the move as a free agent; and let’s see what happens with Frenkie de Jong, if he’ll change his mind or not about his situation at Barcelona.”
