Borussia Dortmund are interested in signing Manchester United transfer target Jude Bellingham.
The teenage midfielder became the youngest player ever to appear for Birmingham City earlier this season, beating the record of Trevor Francis, and has since gone on to make 34 appearances for the club, scoring 4 times.
Despite being only 16, his impressive form has already attracted attention from a number of Premier League clubs, including Manchester United, who were prepared to pay £25 million for him in January.
But now it looks like they could be out-bid by the Bundesliga side, with reports in the German media that they are prepared to pay a club record fee to sign him in the summer for a fee of €35 million (£30.5 million).
Dortmund already have a successful track record with English teenagers, having signed Jadon Sancho from Manchester City at a similar age, who has since gone on to become a major star and a full England international.
