Paris Saint-Germain chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi has revealed that his club are in the race to sign Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund next year.

The English teenager has been one of the stars of the ongoing World Cup in Qatar and is attracting interest from several clubs. 

Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester City are the frontrunners for his signature and have been courting him for months.

However, PSG have now confirmed that they are also interested in the 19-year-old.

Speaking to Sky Sports about Bellingham, PSG chief Al-Khelaifi said:

“England (are) lucky to have him, to be honest. He’s one of the best players in the tournament. 

“Amazing — his first World Cup. He’s calm and relaxed, confident — amazing.

“Everybody wants him. I’m not going to hide it.

“He’s at his club, and (we have) respect, so if we want to talk to him we’ll talk to the club first.”

Bellingham was instrumental in England’s 3-0 win over Senegal, a win that earned The Three Lions a quarter-final tie with World Cup holders, France.

Ahead of this massive game, the Borussia Dortmund midfielder has insisted that he is going to be “up for it”.

“I think when you’ve got the dog, you’re just born with it, really,” he said.

“The way I was raised in football, you had to have that dog in you a little bit and I go into the games knowing every game’s a war and you got to be up for it. I think that’s something I have.

“There was a foul (in the Senegal game) that I didn’t think was a foul, I kind of held onto the ball and moved up, me and the lad were both just staring at each other for a minute straight and I just think, ‘don’t be the one that loses’.

“I feel like off the pitch, I’m a nice guy but when I get onto the pitch, something kind of takes over me, to be honest, I feel like you’ve got no friends out there except the ones wearing the same kit.

“Anyone who is not wearing that, it’s, it’s kind of, no beef… but there is something that’s a little bit personal.”
