Chelsea target Jude Bellingham could ‘turn out to be a bargain’ if the club agrees to meet the demands of Borussia Dortmund, according to journalist Dean Jones.
However, the Blues may have spent more than £200million during the summer transfer window, but it appears that boss Potter has already set his sights on strengthening his squad further down the line.
According to The Sun, Dortmund are willing to sanction Bellingham’s departure if one of his suitors pledges to pay an upfront fee of £83million next summer.
The report suggests Chelsea are keen to acquire the 17-cap England international but is aware that they will need to finish in the Premier League’s top four to stand a chance.

It seems that Bellingham’s price tag has decreased substantially as he was reportedly valued at close to £132million by Dortmund.
Manchester United was among a number of clubs – which included Real Madrid and Liverpool – looking to strike a deal with the Bundesliga giants during the summer transfer window, but they were unwilling to part with the teenager at that stage.
It is understood that Chelsea have also joined the race for Bellingham’s services, with the Blues’ hierarchy attempting to make inroads in the central midfielder’s camp.
