Today’s transfer gossip round-up

With the summer transfer window inching closer, the Jadon Sancho rumours are making a comeback. At the weekend, Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc admitted that his club have a “gentleman’s agreement” with the England winger, and that there are: “certain conditions which need to be met for Jadon to be able to leave the club. Timing and fee have been and still are the deciding parameters,” he added.

According to reports, the required fee could be lowered from €120 million down to around €90m, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool all interested. The Reds could have an advantage over their rivals too, with Fichajes reporting that Dortmund are interested in their midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Could a deal involving the former Arsenal man suit both clubs?
