Former Tottenham star Darren Bent believes Bellingham made the perfect decision to snub Man United.

“It makes sense for his development because he’s got more game time, in the Champions League, at Dortmund than at United,” Mirror quoted him saying.

He, however, believes the time is ripe for the England youngster to move to the EPL, urging Arsenal chiefs to launch an audacious swap deal.

Bent went on to list a string of players the Gunners should consider offloading, including Granit Xhaka and Bernd Leno.

“I’d literally switch five players for him, I’d chop in five for him,” he joked.
“[Granit] Xhaka, [Mohamed] Elneny, Cedric, [Bernd] Leno, [Calum] Chambers. There’s your five and I’d give you £50million on top to get him," he added when pressed to name the players.
