Chelsea willing to go to £100M to bring Sancho home to Kennington

Chelsea are willing to go to £100m to prise Jadon Sancho away from Borussia Dortmund in January.

The Daily Mail says Sancho will be Chelsea's principal target now their transfer ban has been lifted, with expectation increasing that the England winger will chose Stamford Bridge next summer, when he is expected to move from Borussia Dortmund.

Chelsea will have to pay a club record for the 19-year-old, likely to be around £100million, but will also try to sign a new centre forward, despite the rise of Tammy Abraham, with RB Leipzig's Timo Werner in their sights.

But it is Sancho who is likely to be the most exciting signing and, despite interest from Liverpool and Manchester United, the south Londoner raised in Kennington as a Chelsea fan looks highly likely to move to Stamford Bridge if Dortmund agree to sell.

Sancho is a close friend of Callum Hudson-Odoi and Chelsea want the pair to spearhead them for the next decade.
