Chelsea reportedly join Manchester United and Liverpool in the race to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho this summer after his asking price was slashed.

Chelsea have reportedly signalled their interest in signing in-demand Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho this summer.

The 21-year-old was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United last year, but ultimately stayed in Germany after the Premier League giants refused to meet his asking price.

However, recent reports have suggested that Sancho's price tag has been slashed ahead of this summer's transfer window, and Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc appeared to confirm that they have a gentleman's agreement in place for Sancho to leave the club at the end of the season.

Man United are understood to retain an interest in the England international, while Liverpool have also been linked, and BILD reports that Chelsea have now also joined the race.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is thought to be lining up a raid on his former club, although he left Dortmund shortly before Sancho's arrival at the Westfalenstadion.

The Chelsea board are expected to back Tuchel in the transfer market this summer, having seen him lead them to the Champions League semi-finals, FA Cup final and remain on course for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

The Blues have also been linked with moves for the likes of Erling Braut Haaland and Romelu Lukaku.
