Bellingham is Real Madrid's top summer transfer target as they free up non-EU spaces in squad

· Clubs around Europe interested in 19-year-old

· Los Blancos in the running for signing

· He is their number one target


WHAT'S HAPPENING? There looks set to be an almighty transfer battle for Bellingham when the summer transfer window opens after the end of the season. Madrid are one of several teams who have been heavily linked with the England midfielder and GOAL understands that he is their top target ahead of the 2023-24 campaign.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Bellingham is by no means unhappy at Borussia Dortmund, although given his performances in the Bundesliga and the Champions League, he is approaching the stage where he is keen to make the step to a side competing for the top honours. Alongside Madrid, each of the 'Big Six' clubs in the Premier League have been linked with a move at one time or another.

AND WHAT'S MORE: While it will be more complex for Los Blancos to include Bellingham in their squad given the non-EU registration rules in La Liga, the Spanish and European champions have freed up enough space for the signing. Brazilian trio Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo and Eder Militao have all recently received Spanish citizenship so none of them will occupy any of the three non-EU spaces.
