Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has reportedly already spoken with Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho about a transfer to the west London club.
According to Don Balon, the Blues are planning a €120million bid to Dortmund for Jadon Sancho, who seems to have become a priority target for Frank Lampard.
Jadon Sancho has shone in his time in the Bundesliga, showing himself to be one of the most impressive young players in world football after the move to Germany earlier in his career.
The England international winger started out at Manchester City before leaving to further his career at Borussia Dortmund, but it makes sense that he could now head back to the Premier League.
Chelsea would do well to snap him up, with Frank Lampard’s side still somewhat lacking options up front after selling Eden Hazard to La Liga giants during the summer.
The Blues were under a transfer ban at the time so could not sign a replacement for Eden Hazard, but Jadon Sancho looks to perfectly fit the bill for what the club needs in that area.
Frank Lampard himself has recently hinted that is the kind of signing he’ll be looking for shortly.
“I think it will be a bit fluid and discussions will be ongoing from now about where we can strengthen,” Lampard said, as quoted by the Metro.
“Of course, with Eden leaving, we lost a lot of goals and creation in that particular position.
“Today we’ve missed some chances, and we can look at strengthening and pushing and getting more competition in those areas.”
