Jadon remained in Germany where the winger has managed eight goals in 25 matches.

It has kept demand for the 20-year-old ace high, with Chelsea now keen on a move for the winger, according to Sport1.

They report BVB have accepted they will finally lose Jadon in the next window, likely to a Premier League side.

German outfit Bild recently reported the Bundesliga club will let him depart if they receive a bid in the region of £88m.

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a brutal financial impact on football and sides are being forced to lower their prices for their prized assets.

Dortmund are said to be facing losses of £66 million and the sale of Sancho would help cover the debts.

The Englishman will also be another year closer to the end of his deal in Germany which expires in the summer of 2023.
