Silva lining for Jude Bellingham to Arsenal? Gunners legend Gilberto hints he’ll speak to sporting director Edu to sign Borussia Dortmund and England star – after being urged to do so by a fan on social media!

Arsenal legend Gilberto Silva has promised fans that he’ll speak to the club’s sporting director Edu about signing England star Jude Bellingham.

Bellingham continued to shine in his World Cup campaign after he provided the assist for Jordan Henderson’s opening goal in England’s 3-0 win over Senegal. 

The 19-year-old has been a sensation for the Three Lions out in Qatar and picked up another admirer in the former Arsenal star – who made his feelings on the midfielder clear in a series of tweets last night.

The former Brazil international wrote: ‘Jude Bellingham reminds me of someone #ENGvsSEN #WorldCup2022 #WhatAPlayer’, accompanied with a thinking emoji.

One fan replied: ‘Have a word with Edu’. Silva responded to that tweet with a thumbs up emoji, suggesting that he would in fact speak with Arsenal’s sporting director.

Another user asked: ‘Can you put a word in?’. Silva replied, ‘Maybe’ with a winking emoji at the end.

Silva could actually help sort a potential deal given the fact he has become a football agent since retiring. The 46-year-old represents players such as Manchester United and Brazil midfielder Fred.

Silva’s praise for Bellingham continued after he claimed that the Borussia Dortmund star ‘will lift the World Cup one day’.

Bellingham made history as he became the first teenager in a World Cup knockout stage to register an assist since records began.

He provided the crucial pass to Jordan Henderson who opened the scoring for England in their round of 16 tie with Senegal.

It was Bellingham’s second goal involvement out in Qatar after scoring England’s first goal of the competition against Iran in their opening match.

The 19-year-old is already seen as one of the best players in the world and has already been linked with moves to Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester City.

The teenager has already made over 150 senior appearances in his career and has scored 23 goals in that time as he continues to break barriers for his age group.

England rounded off their 3-0 win thanks to goals from captain Harry Kane and Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka to book a place in the World Cup quarter-finals.

They’ll face reigning champions France in the next round of the competition on Saturday night.
