England international and Chelsea transfer target Jude Bellingham has been told to avoid a move to the Premier League and stay at Borussia Dortmund.

That is the advice that Everton star and pundit Andros Townsend has given to the 19-year-old midfielder who is widely considered to be one of, if not the best young player in the world right now.

“I’d say stay there [Dortmund] a bit longer, because if he comes to the Premier League he will be £150m,” Townsend told talkSPORT.

“Bellingham scores goals but his main quality isn’t scoring goals. He’ll come to the Premier League for £150m, the media, everyone is going to expect him to score goals.

“When he doesn’t do that, even when he’s playing well, they are going to be on his back. We are going to have a Jack Grealish situation.

“For me, stay in Germany, do what you’re doing any maybe further along the line come back.”
