Chelsea is growingly confident of landing Jadon Sancho ahead of Premier League rivals Manchester United.
The wantaway winger will reportedly leave the German side Borussia Dortmund in January, and Europe's elite clubs are circling for his signature.
The Blues are currently serving a transfer ban but are confident of having it reduced to a single transfer window, which will allow them to transact business in January.
Sancho is one of the main transfer targets for the London club, with Leicester's Ben Chilwell the other.
The winger, who left Manchester City in search of first-team action, is said to be keen on moving to Chelsea, where he has a number of friends including Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Sancho will not come on the cheap though, and Chelsea might be forced to break their transfer record for his signature.
Liverpool have also been credited with an interest in the youngster, but coach Jurgen Klopp has distanced himself from making a move in January but went ahead to label him 'a good player'.
"He’s a very good player," Klopp said. "I have no clue where these kind of things are coming from, but it cannot come from us because we never speak about it.
"If we would be involved, nobody would know about it apart from a person who wouldn’t speak about it. There's nothing to say.
"Cost? That’s one issue, 100 percent that would be an issue. But there’s nothing to say about it,"
Both Manchester clubs too are said to be keen on the Englishman, who is part of Gareth Southgate's Three Lions team.
