Daichi Kamada not seen as Jude Bellingham’s replacement at Borussia Dortmund

Sport1 reports that Daichi Kamada is to replace the outgoing Mahmoud Dahoud at Borussia Dortmund, not Jude Bellingham.

Dortmund have a separate list for candidates that they hope can replace Bellingham who could potentially leave in the summer. On the list are: Manu Koné (Borussia Mönchengladbach), Mohammed Kudus (Ajax), Enzo Le Fee (Lorient). While a return for İlkay Gündoğan is also an option as his contract at Manchester City expires in the summer. 

Kamada is set to join Dortmund in the summer on a free transfer from Eintracht Frankfurt, with the Japan international signing a five-year contract. While Dahoud is set to leave Dortmund when his contract expires at the end of the season, ending his five-year stay at the club. 

The money that Dortmund will receive from a Bellingham departure means they could easily afford the options on their list despite interest from clubs with more financial power. A return for Gündoğan would not make sense when it comes to replacing Bellingham, with the three younger players on the list better fits at replacing the 19-year-old.
