Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has reportedly given the green light for his club to launch a £102m bid for Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho.
The 19-year-old has again been in impressive form for Dortmund during the 2019-20 campaign, scoring 13 times and contributing 14 assists in 25 appearances in all competitions.
Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool all continue to be linked with a move for the England international, who is expected to seek pastures new in this summer's transfer window.
However, according to reports in Spain, Chelsea are hopeful of beating their rivals to Sancho's signature by launching a £102m offer.
The Blues are allegedly the only club currently prepared to go above £100m for the teenager, who turned down a new contract with Man City to join BVB in the summer of 2017.
Frank Lampard's side are free to conduct transfer business in January having had their FIFA-imposed suspension overturned on appeal.body check tags ::
