Chelsea encouraged in pursuit of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho

Chelsea are ready to move for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

The Sun says the Blues are ready to splash out a club-record £120million on the 19-year-old.

Frank Lampard was exploring the possibility of signing Sancho this month amid competition from rivals Liverpool and Spanish giants Real Madrid, but any deal is now more likely to go through in the summer.

And reports in Germany claim Dortmund are seemingly resigned to losing the former Manchester City academy ace and have begun targeting replacements.

SportBILD claim the Bundesliga outfit have identified Brazilian starlets Everton and Antony to partner new striker Erling Haaland in leading the line for Lucien Favre's side.
