Chelsea & # 39; open conversations with Jadon Sancho & # 39; before the summer move to Stamford Bridge for Borussia Dortmund star
The Blues brought in Ajax midfielder Hakim Ziyech earlier in the week to strengthen their creative options for next season.
But the signing of the Moroccan did not stop the men of Frank Lampard from pursuing the 19-year-old international Sancho in England.
Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United are also credited with an interest in the winger of Dortmund, who scored 13 goals and 13 assists recorded in 20 games this season.
But the report claims that Chelsea has stolen a march on their Premier League rivals in an effort to secure the signature of the boys' Blues fan.
France Football also claims that Dortmund could receive a club-record fee for players sold for Sancho.
The side of the Bundesliga sold fellow winger Ousmane Dembele for an initial fee of 105 million euros (89.5 million) in the summer of 2017.
But a switch to the Premier League for Sancho this summer could see that that allowance was replaced.
Sancho's excellent form this season continued on Friday-evening when he delivered Dortmund & # 39; s second win in their 4-0 win against Eintracht Frankfurt.

But the visitors, who had enjoyed their best start of a year in half a century with three wins from four games, only battled for 45 minutes and threw in the towel after the restart.
Jadon Sancho grabbed a pinpoint Axel Witsel pass to score with a nice finish in the 50th and Erling Haaland tapped home four minutes later for his eighth goal in his fifth league game, a record from the Bundesliga.
With defense of the Eintracht in disorder, Raphael Guerreiro, who hit the post with a free kick in the first half, made it back in the 74th with a powerful shot from 20 meters after a sloppy shot clearance.
Dortmund suffered a shock 3-2 German Cup defeat against Werder Bremen 10 days ago before losing 4-3 to Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga.
& # 39; It was extremely important to stay clean today, & # 39; Dortmund said to defend Mats Hummels. & # 39; We didn't give them many opportunities either. This was not a clean sheet for the defense, but for the entire team. & # 39;

His decision to refuse Manchester United seems to be justified, making United and Solskjaer bitter.
The Old Trafford side blamed the player agent, Mino Raiola, and representatives for their failed negotiations.
Raiola rejected the claims and insisted that Haaland just chose & # 39; a different path & # 39 ;, an idea that the Norwegian supported.
& # 39; When the season was over, my father and I started talking, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; At that time he did not say anything about Dortmund and then I asked him: & # 39; what about this club? & # 39; He said "we shall see".Haaland made a lightning start in his Dormtund career and scored eight goals in five games
& suddenly it became an option and then I always felt myself. The process was to find the best possible club for me.

The close relationship between Borussia Dortmund & # 39; s players and supporters come from the & # 39; clear and obvious strategy & # 39; of the club to develop homegrown players instead of buying superstars, according to their youth head Lars Ricken.
England star Jadon Sancho, 19, is the best current example of Dortmund's commitment to the youth after they signed him in 2017 from Manchester City and quickly promoted him to their first team.Jadon Sancho is a good example of the & # 39; clear and obvious strategy & # 39; from Borussia Dortmund to develop talented young players, according to youth head Lars RickenThe latest addition to the club is the Norwegian striker Erling Braut Haaland, signed last monthDortmund & # 39; s youth head Lars Ricken has talked about their success in developing players

& # 39; The way we did things did not happen by accident or by chance & # 39 ;, former midfielder Ricken told the BBC
& # 39 It is a clear and obvious strategy not to buy supers but to create them.
& Ousmane Dembele and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were not superstars when they came to Dortmund. We have developed them to become super stars. It is very important for the club.
& # 39; The reason why the atmosphere in our stadium is so good is because there is a great identification between the players and the fans. The supporters see it as a gift for them to play in our stadium. & # 39;
Dortmund & # 39; s policy to buy and improve young players is well established, resulting from their financial problems in the early years of the 21st century.Ricken believes the close relationship between Dortmund supporters and players is the result of their strategy of bringing home-grown playersDortmund brought via Ousmane Dembele before he sold hi to BarcelonaThey also sold Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Arsenal after launching his career
What started with the rise of Mario Gotze and Mats Hummels through the club's academy, continued with Dembele, Aubameyang, Christian Pulisic and Sancho, among others.
The first five were sold for a handsome profit with Sancho, worth around £ 100 million, the next.
They will probably do the same with the Norwegian striker Erling Braut Haaland, who arrived from Red Bull Salzburg during the transfer window in January.
And likewi as with Giovanni Reyna, the son of the former Manchester City and the midfielder of the United States, Claudio, who made his senior debut last month at the age of 17 after skipping the youth ranks.
& # 39; When Gio came to Dortmund, we knew he would be a professional player, & Ricken said. & # 39; That was not the question.The American Giovanni Reyna, 17, is the newest youngster who are quickly followed to the first teamRicken , the former Dortmund midfielder, now provides the club's academy system
& # 39; The question was when he will play for the first team. Summer? Winter? Three months? Six? Everyone was sure he would do it. "
Ricken says that Dortmund is also very clear in the qualities they are looking for when they sign young talent.
" Technical skills are very important and the speed and speed of action, & # 39, he said. & # 39; Players in our first team are all so fast. It is unbelievable.
& The other is the mentality. The taxes we place on the players are very high. School, soccer, national teams.
& # 39; This can all take 70 or 80 hours a week. These boys must be mature, focused and disciplined at a very young age.
& # 39; We want to try to find the special one. We were quite successful with Pulisic, Gio Reyna and Jacob Bruun Larsen. & # 39;
We also want Jadon! Liverpool is the newest club to sign Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer … with a £ 100 million mark on the 19-year-old Manchester City goal

Sancho is also good friends with Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jordan Henderson. And he's close to Rhian Brewster, on loan to Swansea from Liverpool, the pair who helped England win the World Cup Under 17 in 2017.
Klopp admitted that in January & # 39; very difficult & # 39; would be to his team, but he is also open about his admiration for Sancho.
Klopp spoke to his former club last February for their cunning £ 8m catch of Sancho and said they had an advantage because the great clubs of England rarely do business with each other
He said: & # 39; Buying English players is a smart idea because we would never get the chance to get Sancho. We are not blind – we saw him, we liked him and then we think: "Can we get him?" No, because English clubs do not sell to other English clubs. & # 39;
Since moving to Germany, Sancho has become one of the most exciting young attacking talents of world football and has penetrated Gareth Southgate & # 39; s senior team in England.Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has previously praised Dortmund for signing SanchoEgypt and Liverpool can be at odds about the involvement of Mo Salah in the Oly mpische Games

& # 39; Everyone must defend together. We all need to become better defensive as a unit, from front to back. I don't just mean the goalkeeper or the defenders, I mean everyone.
& # 39; It is a disappointment for us, but the season still has a long time to go. I believe in this team, I realized that I trained with them in my short time.
