Chelsea are ready to sign Borrusia Dortmund Winger Jadon Sancho ahead of rivals Liverpool and Manchester United with a shocking £120m bid, MySportDab reports.
The England international market value has skyrocket to £120m after impressive performances in the Bundesliga with Borrusia Dortmund, leading to transfer links from Europe’s top clubs.
According to The Sun, Chelsea are now preparing a shocking £120m bid for Sancho which would set a new transfer fee record for the Blues after signing Kepa for £72m.
MySportDab understands the Blues are now the 19-year-old’s most likely next destination after agreeing to meet Dortmund’s price-tag.
Chelsea have informed the Bundesliga club that they are ready to pay over £100m to sign him.
Over the last year, Manchester United have been linked with signing Sancho but Chelsea appear more serious and are now ahead in the race to sign the youngster.
Coach Frank Lampard is believed to love the winger and sees him as the right star to replace Eden Hazard after his transfer to Real Madrid in the summer.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is now willing to back his manager with a huge budget in the January transfer window after the club’s transfer ban was reduced.
Sancho surprised everyone with his performances at Dortmund last season and was voted into the Bundesliga team of the season with a total of 13 goals and 19 assists across all competitions.
The 19-year-old has shown his level of consistency this season by already scoring 12 goals and providing 13 assists so far this season in all competitions.
However, Dortmund are not willing to sell the 19-year-old before the summer transfer window as he is seen as a very important player in their plan to win the German Bundesliga title.
Despite this, Chelsea do not mind sealing a transfer in January and loan Sancho back to Dortmund until the end of the season, the same agreement both clubs had on Christian Pulisic.
Chelsea are not the only Premier League club keeping tabs on Sancho as United and Liverpool are also said to be interested.
United have tried to lure him to Old Trafford but are yet to submit a serious bid to sign the player and still believe he could lead them back to chasing for the Premier League title.
