Chelsea have been linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, and the 19-year-old has given Frank Lampard more reasons to be interested in him.

Sancho has broken a longstanding Bundesliga record as he became the youngest player ever to score 22 Bundesliga goals, as the Borussia Dortmund star netted in a 3-3 draw with RB Leipzig on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old grabbed an assist in the first half at Signal Iduna Park when he played a ball for Julian Brandt for Borussia Dortmund’s second goal.

With the scores at 2-2, Sancho put his side in front as the England international got on the end of a Marco Reus pass before taking a touch and slamming home from close range.

The Chelsea target was subbed off in the 71st minute as he was forced off with a muscle injury and replaced by Lukasz Piszczek.

After scoring his first Bundesliga goal in the 2017-18 season, Sancho netted 12 times in the league for Dortmund last term and has now scored nine league goals this season.
