Chelsea are hopeful their negotiations for Erling Haaland will also help them win the race to sign Jude Bellingham, reports have claimed.
The Blues are desperate to sign an imposing number nine this summer, and have identified Haaland and Tottenham star Harry Kane.
Bellingham, 17, has been a long-term for the west London club.
And they want to make sure they are in good favour with Dortmund when the England midfielder decides he wants to leave, per Goal.com.
The former Birmingham City star is expected to extend his contract with Dortmund until 2025.
Manchester United tried desperately to sign Bellingham before he moved to Dortmund from Birmingham in 2020.
Since then, Bellingham has accrued 46 appearances for Dortmund, including 10 in the Champions League, all before his 18th birthday.
