John Terry has advocated Chelsea to signal Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
The Blues have been heavily linked with the England international, who has emerged as one of the brightest young players in Europe since his breakthrough in Germany.
Sancho, 19, joined the Bundesliga facet from Manchester City in 2017 and has gone on to score 31 occasions and made 36 aids in 90 appearances.

“I believe Sancho is among the finest young players in the world right now, so he would be an excellent addition to Chelsea’s squad.
“It would make us better too, but those that come through, the Billy Gilmours, Tammy, Mason, Reece [James], it is endless isn’t it? There have been numerous positives this season.
“So I feel every Chelsea fan, because I came through the ranks, that is all Chelsea fans wanted to see the youth team players and the younger generation coming through and making their first-team debuts. We have seen that in abundance this season.”
Chelsea have relied upon their childhood system to elevate the standard of their squad this year as the club navigated past summer’s move ban.
And former captain Terry is thrilled to see them glow under former team-mate Frank Lampard.
“It’ s been incredible because we said there was no 1 better to give Lamps the job,” he added. “With [assistant manager] Jody Morris as well, he’s someone who understands the younger gamers and works with them in the youth group and U-18 level also.
“I think it’s been a fantastic mix. I believe that the expectation has been excellent since the group that they have had this year have done really, really well.”
