Chelsea fans are already over the moon after Borussia Dortmund youngster Jadon Sancho admitted he looked up to Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba as a youngster.
The Blues faithful are dreaming of a front three containing England ace.
The former Manchester City academy star joined Dortmund in 2017 after a lack of first-team opportunities and has become one of the hottest prospects in Europe since featuring in his first Bundesliga match two years ago.
Manchester United, City and Liverpool have all been linked with a move for the winger, alongside Europe’s other footballing powerhouses, but Chelsea fans believe he may be set to make the move to Stamford Bridge next summer, report the Daily Express.
That is because of the comments made by Sancho in a recent interview with The Independent, in which he admits to have ‘looked up to’ Blues heroes Lampard and Drogba earlier in his childhood.
He said: “Ronaldinho was the main guy I used to watch on YouTube.
“But I liked Frank Lampard quite a lot and Didier Drogba when they were playing for Chelsea. They were the three players I looked up to.”
And, with Lampard now in charge at Stamford Bridge, the Chelsea faithful were convinced the remarks point to Sancho returning to London come June 2020.
One supporter tweeted: “WELCOME TO CHELSEA BRO.”
While another added: “Written in the stars. #Sancho2020.”
A third fan dreamed of the Blues’ forward line next season. They wrote: “Pulisic Tammy Sancho up front next season.”
Another of the Stamford Bridge faithful added: “Sancho has Chelsea written all over him.”
While a fifth supporter put: “Jadon Sancho wants a bit of Frank Lampard’s Chelsea and I can’t blame him tbh.”
