In a bid to add more depth to the team ahead of the January Transfer window, Chelsea are prepared to break the bank in order to sign Borussia Dortmund superstar to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues, who are likely to know the fate of their transfer ban today, are understood to have made a formal approach for the England international.
And if Chelsea are given the green light, they will be able to buy players in the next transfer window, rather than wait until the summer.
Jadon Sancho, who is valued at more than £100m, has appeared to be unsettled in Germany after a blistering 2018/19 campaign where he scored 12 goals and registered 14 assists in the Bundesliga.
He’s expected to command a much bigger fee than the £72million arrival of goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao at Stamford Bridge last year if things work out well.
