And Chelsea could be ready to spend big to land the England international.
TOP STORY – CHELSEA READY TO BREAK TRANSFER RECORD FOR SANCHO
Chelsea are prepared to break their transfer record to land Sancho, according to Goal.com.
Sancho has been linked to the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City after impressing at Dortmund.
Chelsea broke their own transfer record last year, when they paid Athletic Bilbao a reported £71.6million (€80m) for goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.
The Premier League club are appealing their transfer ban, at this stage unable to buy players in January.
That may not be such a problem when it comes to Sancho, though, with Sport Bild reporting the attacker may not want a January move.
