Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho is being eyed up by Chelsea, according to reports.

Dortmund’s head of licensed player department Sebastian Kehl has said Sancho has no release clause in his new contract, though the club are aware “there will be enquiries” for the winger.

Sancho, 18, has set up eight goals and scored one in 10 competitive appearances so far this season, leading the Bundesliga assists table and receiving his first call-up to the England senior team.

Sancho’s recent form has alerted several prestigious clubs across Europe, with his role at Borussia Dortmund continuing to catch the eye with Gareth Southgate including the youngster in his England squad ahead of upcoming fixtures against Croatia and Spain.

Sancho is a man in demand and according to the Mirror, Dortmund believe he could one day be worth a figure in the region of £100 million.

The talented teenager has seen his rapid rise to prominence in Germany rewarded with fresh terms through to 2022.

“We are not naïve to not take note of other club’s interest,” he told Sky. “The lads are doing a grand job right now. And thus, there will always be enquiries for the players we have here.”

“Especially for players like Jadon Sancho, who has been invited to the England senior squad for the first time.”
