Grealish thinks it’s scary the potential of player who Chelsea could try sign

Jack Grealish gave himself the shivers by imagining the levels Jude Bellingham has the capability to reach in his career.

Grealish grappled with the ghouls of the Borussia Dortmund midfielder’s potential whilst speaking to ITV.

Halloween was well over a month ago now, but it is still rather terrifying to consider how good Bellingham could become in just a few more years.

Pundits and players alike have struggled to see any weakness in the England international’s repertoire.

He has power, pace, precision and much more, all bundled together in an established figure way beyond his 19-years on this planet.

“Yeah, he’s brilliant. He’s got everything. The only thing he hasn’t got is he isn’t a Villa fan, he’s a Bluenose!” admitted Grealish.

“He’s a top, top lad. He’s such a good guy. So mature in the way he plays, he can defend, tackle, run with the ball, score goals. He can do anything, honestly.

“I don’t know if he’s got better. I knew he would shine at this tournament but I feel like he’s matured in the way he plays. If he keeps going in the way he is he’ll be absolutely frightening.”

Opponents have already been spooked by Bellingham’s class in Qatar.

Iran, Wales and Senegal all faced his wrath in one way or another.

The Premier League might also be in for a shock if the Dortmund gem ever makes his way back to England.

For all his many suitors across the land, Chelsea seem to be one of the most serious in their pursuit.

Whilst they might not be favourites right now to buy Bellingham, the Blues will attempt to wrestle their way to the front of the queue if necessary.
