Chelsea are now interested in signing both Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, according to the Sunday World‘s Kevin Palmer.
Dortmund are believed to be keen to offload Sancho and may lower their asking price to €90m (£78m) in order to attract offers for the England international.
Sancho is a player that is well-liked by manager Thomas Tuchel so there is now a possibility of the Blues making offers for both the 20-year-old and his teammate Haaland. Unsurprisingly, fans on Twitter are excited by the prospect:

It’s probably best for supporters not to get too far ahead of themselves. The Sunday World do claim that Manchester United remain interested in Sancho so Chelsea won’t have a clear path to sign the winger.
In Haaland’s case, both Manchester City and Liverpool are also thought to be looking at the Norwegian so there will be a battle to secure both player’s signatures at the end of the season.
