Jude Bellingham will tell Borussia Dortmund he wants to leave the club after he returns from the World Cup, according to reports.
The 19-year-old, who has started every one of England's matches at the tournament, has been heavily linked to some of the biggest clubs in the world over the past few months.
Dortmund are hoping to keep hold of Bellingham, who is under contract until 2025, for at least another year or two, but with interest in the midfielder ramping up they're going to have a major fight on their hands to keep him, especially if Bellingham starts pushing for an exit.

According to German outlet BILD, Bellingham's parents are keen for their son to move back to England, with Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea all desperate to secure his signature.
Real Madrid and PSG are also interested, though Liverpool are currently frontrunners having spent the best part of a year courting the youngster.
Reds manager Jurgen Klopp sees Bellingham as the ideal player to build the club's midfield around and it's understood the German opted against signing a central midfielder last summer in order to wait for the Dortmund man.
Who will Jude Bellingham be playing for this time next year? Let us know in the comments section below.
Landing him won't be easy though. The Bundesliga club are expected to hold out for around £130m and with Liverpool in the midst of a potential change in ownership there's no guarantee that funds of that magnitude will be available.
Like Liverpool, Real Madrid are long-standing admirers of Bellingham and although their midfield is already stacked with prodigiously talented youngsters in Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga and Vederico Valverde, adding another won't exactly be a problem.
City are also in the running, especially with Bellingham's close pal Erling Haaland acting as middle man, as are Chelsea, who tried to sign the midfielder when he was at Birmingham, though their bid, like Liverpool's, will likely depend on whether or not they finish in the top four this season.
Bellingham joined Dortmund as a 17-year-old back in 2020 with just a season of senior football under his belt. He immediately established himself as key player and starred as club won the DFB-Pokal in 2021.
He's racked up over 100 appearances for the German giants, scoring 19 goals, and has been particularly effective in front of goal this season, netting nine goals in 22 games in all competitions.
