Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has hailed Chelsea transfer target Jude Bellingham as a lovely passer of the ball.

Chelsea are reportedly eyeing a move for the Borussia Dortmund midfielder as an alternative to West Ham’s Declan Rice. The Blues are thought to be keen on landing the Hammers star, with Frank Lampard a fan of the England international’s versatility.

“I am so pleased Jude Bellingham is in the squad,” Redknapp wrote on Sky Sports. “I know it is early and we should not get too excited about it but I am a massive fan of how he plays.

“There are certain young midfielders who come along who make you go, ‘wow, this kid has got everything’.

“He is a lovely passer of the ball, he looks so composed. Even if he does not touch a ball in the next three games, just for him to be around the likes of Jordan Henderson, Harry Kane, just to get a feeling of what it is like to be in an England squad is going to be vital for him.”
