Bellingham urged to make transfer decision
Jude Bellingham looks set for a summer move that could see him join one of the biggest clubs in Europe.
The 16-year-old has been linked with Chelsea, as well as Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund, but will undoubtedly have a number of other big clubs tracking his situation.
Birmingham City’s midfielder has enjoyed a breakthrough season after making 35 appearances so far, but Chelsea legend Trevor Sinclair believes a move to a big club like Chelsea could be the wrong move.

He said: “Jude Bellingham has to think about playing games, getting better and improving as a player – which I think will be very difficult for him to do at Chelsea.
“If he is going to move on from Birmingham City and kick on at a higher level, it is really important that he goes to a club where he can play week in, week out as that’s the only way he’ll improve and fulfil the potential that he’s got,” said Sinclair.

Chelsea in race for Martinez transfer
Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez has been a well-discussed transfer target for many of Europe’s top clubs recently and looks set for a move away from the Serie A club.
While talks with Barcelona indicated that the striker’s destination had been confirmed, developments have since hinted that Chelsea could be back in the running to secure his signature.
Reports have revealed that Frank Lampard’s side are willing to spend much more on the striker’s wages than Barcelona have suggested. As much as €10million net per year has been quoted by sources which could put the west London club back into the reckoning over a potential summer move.
