Roman Abramovich wants to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.
That’s according to transfer expert Duncan Castles, who claims the Chelsea owner wants a marquee signing to replace Willian.
The Brazilian playmaker is reportedly heading for the exit having only been offered a one-year contract extension and Abramovich alongside director Marina Granovskaia have £100 million-rated Sancho in their sights.
“Their priority is on the wing, where they envisage losing Willian because they have offered Willian a new contract but only a one-year contract because of his age,” Castles said on Reach PLC’s Transfer Window Podcast.
“Chelsea are preparing for his exit. I’m told they are focusing on wingers at present. One of those strong options for them is Jadon Sancho.”
