Borussia Dortmund chief issues transfer update on Liverpool target Jadon Sancho

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has opened up on Jadon Sancho who has been linked with transfer move to Liverpool and Manchester United, as per a Mirror report.

Zorc insisted that there have not been any offers for the England international as of yet. However, he also refused to guarantee that the 19-year-old would stay with the Westfalenstadion outfits beyond the summer.

The Bundesliga star has been spectacular this campaign for Dortmund in the Bundesliga, with 12 league goals and 13 assists across 18 league appearances to his name for the BVB, according to TransferMarkt.

The Black and Yellows chief told SportBild:

“The fact is no other club has contacted us so far about Jadon.

“[I can’t] reliably answer today [if Sancho will stay at Dortmund beyond the summer]. What I can say for sure is that he feels very comfortable with us. Otherwise he could not produce such [high-level] performances week after week.

“He is a phenomenon and is now producing top performances. And he rarely takes a break on the pitch, helping the team with their defensive work. He is hard-working and gets the greatest of respect from me.”

It is believed that Dortmund have set a hefty £127m price-tag on the talented forward and a host of clubs, including Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United, are interested in hiring his services.

Sancho began his career at the age of seven by joining Watford academy and later moved to Manchester City where he was regarded as one of the top prospects to break into the senior team.

However, he forced a move to Germany in 2017 to join Borussia Dortmund for a fee understood be around £8m after he was not included in City’s pre-season tour squad.
