Chelsea’s summer transfer window looks set to be a busy one, with Timo Werner already set to join Hakim Ziyech at Stamford Bridge this summer.
Yet, despite landing two of Europe’s most talented attackers, reports linking Chelsea to both Jadon Sancho and Kai Havertz will not go away.
Manchester United and Liverpool are also said to be keeping tabs on Borussia Dortmund and England star Sancho and Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Havertz.
And it seems like the pair may well be available in the summer.
Norwegian broadcaster Jan Aage Fjortoft, who reports on the Bundesliga, feels there will still be clubs spending money this summer despite the financial impact of coronavirus, and he expects Sancho and Havertz to be high on shopping lists.
Indeed, Fjortoft revealed that he thinks Dortmund may have agreed to sell Sancho already.
He told our friends at the Liverpool Echo: “It’s anyone’s guess how the market will develop but I think we are overdoing how much impact this will have on Bayern, or Liverpool, or Manchester United.
“If Jadon Sancho or Kai Havertz are on the market, there will be buyers.
“Havertz, I can compare him to Michael Ballack. There is not another player like Havertz and it is hard to define what kind of player he is. He can play as a false nine and he can turn into a number 10.

“And Sancho is unbelievable the way he takes on people. When he is around the box, you smell goals. Some he scores himself and some he makes assists.”
On Sancho, he added: “I think they have done a Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United kind of thing where they said ‘we cannot sell you now but stay for another year and then we’ll sell you’.
“And I think that year is up now in the summer for both of those players.”
