Chelsea is reportedly ready to splash £120m on Jadon Sancho on the bid to outpace Man United bid. 

Despite that aim of trying to more resourceful, Chelsea is prepared to invest heavily this summer, especially given the FIFA transfer ban, the loss of Eden Hazard and a failure to land anyone in January.

“A move for Jadon Sancho has been discussed and the club is not put off by Borussia Dortmund’s valuation in the region of £120m. The competition will be fierce, however, as Manchester United are also serious about Sancho among a number of other clubs,” Chief Football Correspondent, James Olley said.

The striker search will continue with Lyon’s Moussa Dembele their preferred target. Others on the shortlist include Red Bull Leipzig’s, Timo Werner. “I’m not entirely sure the Wilfried Zaha situation is dead either, although Crystal Palace will have to lower their £80m asking price.” Olley said.

The club is also keen on signing a left-back with Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell heading that particular list.

As with all clubs, they will be governed by who becomes available and when – a situation complicated further by uncertainty over when the transfer window will actually take place.

As the season is shut down due to the Coronavirus pandemic, chief football correspondent James Olley on Friday answered your questions all things, Chelsea.
