Manchester United , Liverpool and Chelsea are the ‘top candidates’ in the race for Jadon Sancho, according to reports.
All three Premier League clubs have been alerted to Sancho’s incredible form at Borussia Dortmund this season – he’s bagged 14 goals and provided 14 assists this term.
But the England winger won’t come cheap with German publication Bild claiming Dortmund will not sell for any less than €140m (£121m).
Chelsea have already splashed the cash on acquiring Hakim Ziyech from Ajax who is due to arrive at the club in the summer.
Liverpool are long-term admirers of the 19-year-old but it’s unclear if the club would be willing to fork out such a high fee with Jurgen Klopp already spoilt for choice with his front three options.

Manchester United would certainly have the fees to afford Sancho and his wages should they decide to cash in on Paul Pogba as expected this summer.
The Athletic’s David Ornstein claims executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is also pushing hard to secure Sancho’s services.
“Manchester United really want to sign Jadon Sancho. Ed Woodward’s very keen on it,” Ornstein told The Warm Down .
Chelsea and Man Utd have both been linked with a transfer for the Borussia Dortmund ace
“It’s delicate because we don’t know if Manchester United are going to be in the Champions League next season and we don’t know if that is a prerequisite of Sancho.
“Most people would say of course he wants to be playing in the Champions League but we don’t know.
“He could make that move on the hope that he could be playing in the Champions League at Manchester United [in a couple of years].
