Chelsea have been linked with Jude Bellingham in the past, and now the 18-year-old midfielder has become a player in demand following his hot form for Borussia Dortmund.

The young midfielder has always been highly rated but has now turned into a global sensation since making a switch to Dortmund.

Bellingham has even broken into the England senior team, and former Chelsea and Liverpool defender Glen Johnson claims the young midfielder would be a better fit with Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

According to Glen Johnson, Bellingham may not be able to cope with the pressure of succeeding at Chelsea.

When asked which club would aid his progression best between Liverpool, City, United and Chelsea, Johnson told “I’d probably say Liverpool.

“Even though Liverpool do have superstar players, they also have a smaller squad and they don’t have those superstar players sitting on their bench banging the door down, so it’s easier to keep the squad happy.

“If Jude was to make the move to Liverpool then I believe they can nurture him better than his other suitors and will give him more time as that’s what he will need.

“If he was to go to Chelsea or Manchester City and didn’t perform straight away then the pressure would be immediately on him and he would be stepped aside and somebody else would come in and take his place.

“Liverpool’s smaller squad would help him in that sense.”
