Dortmund ties Bellingham, the pearl of Birmingham

first_imgBundesliga* Data updated as of March 5, 2020 If Borussia Dortmund has something, it is an enviable ability to rebuild again and again. It has always been a leading team in Germany but almost every year he loses some of his stars. But that has never destabilized the club, which has always managed to get ahead and stay in the elite thanks to good investments in young and talented soccer players. Just have a look at the current template, in which they are Sancho, Haaland, Achraf (assigned), Akanji, Queen or Zagadou, to realize that in the German club they have an eye to find footballers with a lot of potential.And now they have proposed to sign the pearl of Birmingham, Jude Bellingham, for which they would have already reached an agreement to be incorporated in the summer. According Bild, They would pay up to 35 million euros for the 16-year-old young Englishman. The midfielder (sometimes acts as an interior), which plays in the U23 England since the age of 15, he has four goals and three assists in 31 games. It is not known if the player will become a world-class soccer player, but that would be the most expensive signing in the history of Borussia Dortmund if the deal is finally closed with those figures.last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has yet to sign a new deal at the club© AFP/File MARCO BERTORELLOLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 19 – Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said Thursday he is “confident” midfielder Jack Wilshere will sign a new contract at the Premier League club despite a delay in putting pen to paper.Wilshere’s current deal runs out in the summer and, despite an offer being on the table, the 26-year-old is yet to agree terms. “I cannot give you any news,” Wenger said at his pre-match press conference. “I don’t know really what is in his mind.“He has not signed, he has an offer and we want him to stay. The offer is a long-term contract and I hope at some stage he will sign it. I am always confident.“As a club you want the players to stay and be paid well and I think everyone would agree we pay our players very well.”Wenger has also played down speculation over his future at the Emirates Stadium amid reports linking Patrick Vieira with the manager’s job.Former Gunners midfielder Vieira is currently in charge at New York City in Major League Soccer.“My personal situation is not so much my worry at the moment,” said Wenger. “My worry is to transform the season into a success.”When asked if he will make his own mind up on his future, Wenger added: “That doesn’t really matter.”Wenger also revealed Henrikh Mkhitaryan could return for the first leg of the Europa League semi-final against Atletico Madrid next week.Mkhitaryan was expected to be out for a while with a knee injury but Wenger said the midfielder was on the road to recovery.“Mkhitaryan is running again, he has to progress in the next three or four days,” said Wenger. “Possibly (fit for) Thursday, that is the earliest.”Arsenal, who are 14 points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham in the Premier League, face West Ham at home on Sunday.Wenger added: “For us it (the Europa League) is the biggest priority now. This weekend is preparation for Thursday. I rested most players after the (CSKA) Moscow game and they will need a game.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
