German giants believe more youngsters are ready to quit Premier League for first-team football following England international’s success
Borussia Dortmund have reportedly targeted the next three English hotshots they want to follow Jadon Sancho to the Bundesliga.
The winger made his England debut this month just over a year after the German side plucked the 18-year-old from Man City’s reserves.
They believe the starlet has the potential to become a £100m superstar after his impressive start to life at the Westfalenstadion.
Now the Daily Mirror claim Dortmund have identified a hat-trick of wonderkids they hope to bring to the club.
The report states Liverpool’s Bobby Duncan, Manchester City’s Phil Foden and Chelsea attacker Callum Hudson-Odoi are all on their wanted list.
According to today’s claims, Dortmund have been watching 17-year-old forward Duncan – the cousin of Anfield legend Steven Gerrard.
The England Under-17s ace, who trained with Jurgen Klopp’s first-team squad last week, is regarded as one of the country’s hottest prospects.
Liverpool snapped him up from Man City last summer but could now face a fight to hold on to him.
Dortmund believe the English market is the place to shop after the success of Sancho and believe more of our youngsters are ready to leave the Premier League in order of first-team football abroad.
And City’s most-prized academy asset Foden, 18, is another on their list.
Pep Guardiola has already insisted the midfielder is going nowhere, but that has not deterred Dortmund.
They are also determined to land Hudson-Odoi following his fine displays for Chelsea in pre-season.
The forward, 17, was promised game time by Maurizio Sarri but has found chances hard to come by so far under the Italian.
But Dortmund are not the only club to have been alerted by his lack of action with new Monaco boss Thierry Henry also keeping tabs on him.
And the Ligue 1 club hope sporting director Michael Emenalo’s ties with the Stamford Bridge prodigy from his time working for the Blues could help them to pip the Germans to the starlet’s signature.
