Borussia Dortmund Eye Up Potential Replacement For Jadon Sancho
Jadon Sancho could be a step closer to leaving Borussia Dortmund this summer, with the German club having reportedly identified a possible replacement for the forward.
The Dortmund forward is one of the best players in the world right now and has been increasingly linked with leaving the Bundesliga in the near future, with a return to England heavily rumoured.
Dortmund have been known for their ability to sell players on and replace them with a youngster from elsewhere, and that could be the case once again.
The Bundesliga side have identified Ferran Torres, according to the Mirror, as Sancho's replacement, with the Valencia winger impressing in the past two seasons.
According to the report the German club have already started negotiations with the La Liga side for the young winger.
Before the global Covid-19 pandemic, the 20 year-old was expected to get his first call up for the Spain squad for the postponed international fixtures in March.
He has scored four goals and got four assists for his team in 20 starts in the league this season and another two goals and two assists in six games in the Champions League, with Valencia knocked out of the last 16 by Atalanta before the break in football.
Talking about Sancho last week Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said, "You always have to respect what the player wants.
"We already said before corona that our preference is for Jadon to remain with us. I can say clearly that even the very rich clubs, despite the current crisis, shouldn't think they can get a bargain from us.
"We don't have to sell anyone below their value."
The 20-year-old has continued his brilliant form since moving to the Westfalenstadion, in 2017, by scoring 14 goals in the league and also providing 15 assists for his teammates.
He moved from Germany for just £8 million from Manchester City, after deciding to leave the club due to not believing he'd get enough football for Pep Guardiola's side.
It didn't take long for him to break into the first team in Germany and he's become one of the best players around and attracted interest from Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.
Will Sancho leave this summer?
