Jude Bellingham had a quiet night in front of Chelsea owner Todd Boehly ahead of the summer transfer scramble. The 17-year-old Birmingham City midfielder is one of the most sought-after talents in Europe and has been linked with a move to the Blues.

Bellingham was in attendance at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night to watch Chelsea’s Champions League quarter-final first leg against Porto. He was spotted in the stands alongside his father, Mark, and was seen chatting to Boehly during the match.

The Blues are one of a number of clubs interested in signing Bellingham this summer, with Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich also reportedly keen on the teenager.

Bellingham has been a revelation for Birmingham this season, scoring four goals and providing three assists in 33 appearances in all competitions. He has also become the youngest ever player to represent the club in the Championship, making his debut at the age of 16 years and 38 days.

The youngster is expected to move on this summer, with Chelsea believed to be leading the race for his signature. The Blues are reportedly willing to pay up to £50 million for the midfielder, which would make him the most expensive 17-year-old in history.

Bellingham’s performance against Porto was a reminder of his potential, and it is clear that he is a player who could make an immediate impact at Chelsea. The Blues are in need of reinforcements in midfield, and Bellingham could be the perfect addition to their squad.

It remains to be seen whether Bellingham will move to Chelsea this summer, but it is clear that the Blues are in pole position to sign the highly-rated youngster. With the transfer window set to open in the coming weeks, Bellingham’s future is likely to become clearer in the near future.
