The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar has given Jude Bellingham the platform to express himself, showing exactly why he is currently one of the most sought-after players in world football.

Bellingham has played a vital role in England's tournament so far, leading Southgate's side to victories over Iran and Wales in the group stage, before assisting the opening goal in the nation's win over Senegal in the Round of 16.

Manchester City are said to be one of the main clubs interested in the Borussia Dortmund midfielder, with the likes of Real Madrid, Liverpool, PSG, and Chelsea all keeping tabs on the 19-year-old.

Gündoğan's contract is set to expire next summer, after six seasons, 273 appearances, 51 goals and 35 assists with the current Premier League champions.
