According to a report from the Daily Mirror, Tottenham and Liverpool are amongst the cluster of Premier League heavyweights hoping to tempt Jadon Sancho back to England next summer - but they will have to pay at least £100 million if they hope to get a deal done.

It is difficult to think of too many youngsters in European football who have more hype surrounding them right now than Sancho, who has forced his way into the England squad for the first time after just one league start this season.

 

Sancho boasts the incredible record of six assists in seven Bundesliga appearances for Borussia Dortmund after coming off the bench in six of those games. In his last four appearances, he has scored once and provided five assists.

The Daily Mirror reports that Dortmund are expecting serious interest in the 18-year-old next summer, with Spurs, Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea all eyeing a potential deal.

The Mirror adds that Spurs attempted to try and get Sancho included in the deal that saw Kyle Walker head to Manchester City last summer. But they will have to pay significantly more than what they got for Walker if they hope to get a deal done this time around with Dortmund demanding a nine-figure fee before they allow Sancho to leave Westfalenstadion.

Tottenham fans would be forgiven for fearing that his asking price prices them out of the market before the running has barely begun. It would be a huge surprise if Daniel Levy sanctioned the kind of bid that attracted Dortmund's attention, but Sancho is an extraordinary talent so perhaps the Tottenham chairman may just be weighing up whether next summer could be the time to spring a major shock.
