Far-Fetched Friday: Jude Bellingham Chooses Arsenal


The Jude Bellingham sweepstake has recently hit some turbulence, with Liverpool seemingly pulling out of the race. Then you have Manchester City joining and a potential change in Real Madrid's wishes with Toni Kroos and Luka Modric signing new deals. But none of that matters; Jude Bellingham is going to Arsenal.

Welcome back to Far-Fetched Friday, where we give you a bold prediction that we believe will come to fruition. This Friday, we look at at the most coveted midfielder since Paul Pogba.

The basis for my Arsenal pick is that it is simply the best fit for Bellingham. The age profile is perfect, something a Liverpool team that is too old doesn't offer. The region is ideal, something of great importance, considering the Real Madrid fan base's historic poor treatment of British athletes. And their playing style amplifies his best traits. He'll get to play an energetic box-to-box role rather than going to Manchester City and settling into a rotational role as a conservative holding midfielder.

You combine all of those factors along with Arsenal offering an opportunity for Champions League soccer and part of a historic resurgence, and it's hard to see Jude Bellingham saying no if the club comes knocking. But the club has to offer, and I believe they will after seeing their aggressiveness in chasing multiple high-end deals in January. That same money is still available for a generational midfielder that could move this team over the top.

It is time to throw away the American inferiority complex with its place in the sport, where many blindly claim that technique should come above all in choosing and developing the best prospects and that the U.S. is not an international power because it cares too much about athleticism.
