‘Special’: Some Chelsea fans hail display from £25m star previously linked with Blues

Jude Bellingham starred for Borussia Dortmund on Friday night in the Bundesliga – and some Chelsea fans on Twitter were left amazed by the display of the England international. 

Bellingham, who cost Dortmund £25million last summer, was superb yesterday.

He made one assist and scored another in a 3-2 home win against Hoffenheim. His goal was a brilliant left-footed finish that he struck into the bottom corner after a lovely touch to control the ball in the box.

The 18-year-old is a supreme talent that’s part of the England senior group at his young age, plus he’s performing consistently in the German top flight.

Bellingham is someone that’s already received several links to Chelsea, including as recently as June.

Chelsea will be lucky to win Bellingham race

For now, Bellingham looks extremely settled in Germany as a key player for Dortmund.

The ex-Birmingham City midfielder is a rising star, though, that looks destined for a mega transfer at some stage.

A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media were blown away by the teenager’s Friday display, so many were calling for the club to try sign him.

They successful snapped up Christian Pulisic from Dortmund a couple of years ago and supporters would love to see history repeat itself.

At some stage the club should focus on strengthening the central midfield position.

Here are some Blues fans discussing Bellingham:
