Borussia Dortmund have signed Jude Bellingham for a fee of 25 million euros, making him one of the clubs most expensive signings to date at the tender age of 17.

With the summer transfer window open, Borussia Dortmund have once again been quick to identify and snap up their primary transfer targets. As a club that has a customary keen eye for young talent, it is no surprise that one of their summer acquisitions has been one of the most sought after young talents in the world today: Jude Bellingham.

The links to the Bellingham transfer have been plentiful throughout 2020, and the Black and Yellows were finally able to formally announce the signing of the young Englishman last week, much to the happiness of the fanbase, which has waited in anticipation for the saga surrounding Bellingham’s transfer to end.

Bellingham joins Borussia Dortmund for a fee of 25 million euros, although it is more of a compensation fee rather than lump transfer sum, considering the youngster had not yet signed a professional contract with Birmingham City.

Impressively, Dortmund were able to overcome the advances of Manchester United once again, as they secured the signature of yet another talented footballer on the cusp of stardom. Bellingham joins an impressive retinue of talent at the club, and will certainly look to make his presence known in the coming seasons. So now that we know for sure that Jude Bellingham is a Die Schwarzgelben player for sure, let us take a look at what kind of player he is, and what we can expect from one of England’s most highly rated prospects.
