It’s not a secret that Jadon Sancho is going to be one of the most coveted players next summer transfer window. The English winger is currently part of Borussia Dortmund, but that will probably change next year, as Sancho is followed by a host of European giants.

Moreover, now the 19-year-old is understood to want to leave the club next summer, according to one report. Last season was great for him, who earned a spot in the England team after bursting onto the scene last season, where he was the Bundesliga's top assist maker. Nevertheless, the current campaign has been full of uncertainty and frustration for the youngster.

He’s been publicly criticized by both sporting director Michael Zorc ​and manager Lucien Favre, and now the ​Daily Mail claim the player has decided he 'wants to leave' Signal Iduna Park at the end of the season.

This is great news for plenty of clubs around Europe since Sancho looks like a great addition for them. The likes of Paris Saint-Germain, ​Real Madrid and ​Barcelona are understood to be considering bids, but they will face huge competition from the Premier League. Former club ​Manchester City, as well as Manchester United and ​Chelsea, have all been heavily linked with a move for Sancho in recent months.

If that wasn’t enough, the Mail say Premier League leaders ​Liverpool have now also expressed an interest in the exciting teenager. However, Liverpool count with arguably the best attacking trio in the world, so it is unlikely for them to sign a player like this.

​Dortmund have been preparing for Sancho's departure since last summer, with the ​Bundesliga giants ready to listen to offers for their star. In fact, it was reported that Manchester United were confident to strike a deal for the player, as they target young British talent as part of their ongoing rebuild.

They’re said to reignite their attempts to sign Jadon next summer, but competition from other big clubs will be a problem.

This season he started playing really well, scoring three goals and six assists in his first seven games. Yet, as a result of his late return from international duty, he was punished by the club. Everything went wrong for everybody after he was criticized by Zorc and all the little playing time he received from Favre in recent games.

Things don’t look good for the young winger, so perhaps a move away from Dortmund is the best option for him. Fortunately, he won’t miss suitors for his services, the question now is which team is going to land one of the most promising youngsters in the world.
