Arsenal ‘have the chance’ to sign brilliant Bundesliga star worth over £100M

Former Chelsea left-back Scott Minto has predicted that Jude Bellingham will snub a move to Liverpool and join Arsenal.

Bellingham is one of the most exciting young players in the game and is a star that all the big clubs are interested in trying to sign.

It has been suggested in recent days that Liverpool have already begun talks to try and get a £131 million transfer deal done – but if you believe the words of Minto – he could end up making a move to Arsenal.

‘In terms of Jude Bellingham, do I think he’s going to come to the Premier League? Absolutely I do,’ Minto told Ladbrokes about the 19-year-old.

‘I mean, up until the start of this season, everybody was saying he’s Liverpool’s player, because they were right up there with Manchester City.

‘But I’m still wondering whether or not they’re going to make the top four – and if they’re out of the Champions League, I’m not so sure he’d be as keen to go there.

‘I’m not sure what his contract looks like, but there’s no doubt he’ll be playing in the Premier League… absolutely no doubt; he’s good enough to play a key role for the very best teams in the world.

‘The very best team for me is Manchester City, but actually, the way Arsenal are playing at the moment… if they can finish in the top four, or better still, in second place, or even go on to win the title, then all of a sudden they become as attractive a proposition as City, just like that.

‘I wouldn’t be surprised to see that happening, if Arsenal are in the Champions League next season.

‘When you look at what that team is all about under Mikel Arteta, and there’d be a need for them to strengthen if they’re playing on Europe’s biggest stage, why couldn’t they go and get a Bellingham?

‘Look, at the start of the season I had Arsenal finishing in fifth place, or around that area; I didn’t think they’d make the top four.

‘But I’m constantly re-evaluating things as each hurdle has been passed.

‘And I can tell you now, I genuinely think that if they finish in the top four, suddenly they become one of the most attractive teams in the world to join.

‘If this is a team which is already fighting City for the title, after just a year of Arteta turning things around, that’s a team which ticks every box.’
