Sancho has been a shining light for English talent in the Bundesliga since completing a move from Manchester City in 2017.
The England teenager made just three league appearances during his first season but his eight goals and 12 assists this term have seen him become a regular in Lucien Favre’s side.
The 18-year-old attacker’s impressive displays have seen him earn a call-up to England’s senior side as well as attract interest from across Europe.
Manchester United have made Sancho a priority target for the summer window but he will not come cheap.
According to the Mirror, Dortmund have set his price tag at £100m.
United are confident they can make him a new arrival this summer but will have to break the bank if they are to convince Dortmund to sell.
And it seems Dortmund will look to another young Englishman in Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi if Sancho leaves.
Sancho has been making headlines this week, including:
Hudson-Odoi, like Sancho, has been in the spotlight in recent months for showcasing his burst of energy and attacking talent when called upon.
The 18-year-old has found appearances hard to come by under Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge and despite still awaiting his full Premier League debut, he too has been called up to the England side for this week’s EURO 2020 qualifiers.
Hudson-Odoi attempted to leave the Blues in January by handing in a transfer request but the club blocked a move and any bids from Bayern Munich.
The Bundesliga champions will face heavy competition from Dortmund this summer though if the latter lose Sancho and opt to splash the cash on Hudson-Odoi.
News of Dortmund’s plans would spell disaster for Chelsea in their attempts to keep hold of their young winger.
Having fended off interest from Bayern and turned down bids in the region of £40m in previous windows, they know a huge offer from Dortmund could further complicate matters for the teenager in west London.
Speaking about his recent call-up to Gareth Southgate’s side for games against Czech Republic on Friday and Montenegro three days later, Hudson-Oodi expressed his delight at receiving the news.
“I thought the manager [Aidy Boothroyd] was joking. I was shocked and then when I heard that I actually had to go over, I couldn’t believe it,” he said.
“I was delighted. It’s a dream come true.
“Now I’ve got to work hard, enjoy every moment and keep working to just hopefully make an impact when I get the opportunity.
“Everybody here is very humble and they’re very nice. They make sure you’re comfortable, no one has an ego here so hopefully I get to know more of the boys here.”
Hudson-Odoi is under contract with Chelsea until 2020, while Sancho’s Dortmund contract runs until 2022.
