Jadon Sancho would be a "great addition" at Chelsea, according to club great.


Former Chelsea skipper John Terry has no doubt Jadon Sancho would be a “great addition” to Frank Lampard’s side.


The 19-year-old Borussia Dortmund star has been constantly linked with a move to the Premier League after his brilliant displays over the past two seasons at the Bundesliga club.


Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United are among a number of clubs across Europe monitoring the England international‘s situation at the Signal Iduna Park.

And Terry, who won five Premier League titles and a Champions League at Stamford Bridge, believes Sancho “is one of the best young players in the world at the moment”.


"I think the young lads have shown their potential. We spoke at the start of the season about the likes of Tammy [Abraham] and Mason [Mount] coming into the squad and they've shown that they're capable of playing," he told Frank Khalid in a YouTube video.


"I think Sancho is probably one of the best young players in the world at the moment so he'd be a great addition to Chelsea's squad and obviously make us better as well.

"I think every Chelsea fan since I came through the ranks, that's all Chelsea fans wanted to see was the kind of youth team players, the younger generation coming through and making their first-team debuts and we've seen that in abundance this year."

With the Premier League suspended due to the coronavirus crisis, Chelsea are fourth, however, the Aston Villa assistant head coach has been impressed with the west London side’s displays this season.


"I've been really impressed with the style of play, the capabilities of the younger players coming through," he said.


"That, mixed with the likes of Cesar [Azpilicueta] and them kind of players, the experienced ones helping them along the way as well, giving them support along the way for Frank's first season to manage such a big club like Chelsea as well it has been fantastic for him.


"To have the likes of Jody [Morris] around him as well [and] Joe Edwards who know the academy really well and trusting the younger players, there have been so many positives this year so really pleased to see the lads doing so well."
