Former Arsenal forward Paul Merson urges the Gunners to move for Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho next summer.

Former Arsenal forward Paul Merson has urged the Gunners to make a move for Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho in next summer's transfer window.

The England international has been a revelation in the Bundesliga since rejecting a new contract at Manchester City to join BVB in the summer of 2017.

Manchester United are said to be confident of securing a deal for the 19-year-old ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, but Merson has insisted that Arsenal must be in the hunt for the attacker.

"Jadon Sancho has the world at his feet and there's going to be an almighty auction for him next summer at this rate. You have to respect what he did going to Germany for game time. It's a hard league, a new culture, and he's been ripping it up," Merson wrote in his column for the Daily Star.

"A lot of players just stick around picking up their wages whether they're playing or not. But he wanted to play and he's reaping the reward. When you leave a Premier League club to go abroad you're in danger of going out of sight out of mind but he's done so well he thoroughly deserves to be in the England team.

"I like his confidence. He beats players, and he knows the game. He has composure as well as pace. He doesn't make bad choices when he gets into dangerous positions.

"I think we'll see him back in the Premier League sooner rather than later. I doubt he'll be available in January but next summer there will be a queue of clubs lining up. Manchester United seem to like him, and Arsenal certainly should. But Manchester City might even be tempted to bring him back."

Sancho has scored three times and registered four assists in five outings at club level in the early stages of the 2019-20 campaign.
