Birmingham star Jude Bellingham could be the next Englishman to join the conveyor belt of talent moving to Germany.
The teenage sensation has been linked with Borussia Dortmund who themselves have seen the value in investing in young English talent.
One Jadon Sancho swapped Manchester City for the Bundesliga outfit and has become one of football’s hottest properties.
The opportunity for minutes in Germany dwarfs those available in the Premier League with the leading sides less willing to back unproven players.
That has led Bellingham to consider Dortmund’s approach despite interest from Manchester United and Liverpool .
He has no shortage of players to look to for inspiration with the German top flight full of young English talent looking to prove themselves.

The flag bearer for those who take the plunge and move to Germany rather than bidding their time at a top Premier League side.
Since moving to Dortmund the forward’s value has shot up and any move, which is thought to be incoming, would cost at least £100m.
The teenager has scored 31 times in 88 games at Signal Iduna Park which has made him a regular in the England squad and he scored his first international goals in September 2019.
He is almost certain to be included in Gareth Southgate’s squad for Euro 2020 and could yet help Dortmund deliver silverware following a virtuoso display in their Champions League last 16 clash with PSG.
