Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho has recently emerged as a high-priority transfer target for Chelsea this summer.
According to the Sunday World, Sancho is now hot on the Blues radar as a potential recruit for next season.
Chelsea already have invested interest in Dortmund, with Erling Haaland remaining prominent on their wish list.
However, they might have to bid for the Norwegian’s club teammate instead.
Sunday World sources say that signing Haaland may be ‘difficult’, despite Roman Abramovich willing to offload his financial riches.
He would certainly have to write a hefty cheque if they were to secure Sancho.
Dortmund declined a bid from Manchester United last September of £91.3m (Sky Sports) for the young forward, asking instead for £108m.
Sancho should feel very welcome if he switched to Stamford Bridge.
Waiting for him will be several of his England international colleges and Christian Pulisic, a familiar face from their days with Dortmund.
“The sky is the limit for a guy like him,” Pulisic said to the Evening Standard about Sancho back in 2018.
“A young player coming through, and you can see how much talent and how much skill he has.”
Pulisic left to join Chelsea a few months after this statement, whilst Sancho remained in Germany.
Their paths may cross again if the 21-year-old does decide to return to the country his footballing career started in.
Along with a new winger, Sunday World state that Chelsea are also after another centre-forward and centre-back.
There could well be plenty of chopping and changing to Thomas Tuchel’s squad before the 2021/22 campaign kicks off.
