Tottenham Hotspur host Dortmund in the Champions League this week and all eyes are on Jadon Sancho.

Sancho is English football's trailblazing wonderkid, who quit the Premier League to try his luck in the Bundesliga.


The Three Lions international has been an unprecedented success and the German side need him to step up against Tottenham at Wembley tomorrow evening.

Sancho is reportedly wanted by several of England's top clubs, with Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham all claimed to be keen, The Mirror report.

Dortmund fans fear Sancho will be tapped up for a transfer while he is in England, and this is something the German side have refuted.

Former player Sebastien Kehl, now player liaison leader, told Kicker: "The game in England is special for him, of course, but he has taken a big step forward not only in terms of sport but also in his personality development.

"Jadon will be on the plane again on our return flight."

Sancho will add to his price tag with a prominent performance against Tottenham, and make it harder for clubs to buy him in the summer.

He has scored eight goals and provided 10 assists this season and the pressure is on him to step up with top scorer Marco Reus out.
