Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is keen on signing Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho in January or in the summer.

According to former Liverpool star Steve Nicol, Sancho joining Chelsea doesn’t make sense because there’s no guarantee he would start.

“Listen, the fact that Jadon Sancho might leave Dortmund I think is a huge possibility,” Nicol told ESPN FC.

“I just can’t figure out why it would be Chelsea. You’ve got Pulisic, you’ve got Hudson-Odoi there, you’ve got Mason Mount – why are you bringing this guy in? It makes no sense.

“If I’m Jadon Sancho and I’m looking at Chelsea, I’m asking myself one question: ‘Am I going to go to Chelsea and start?’.

“So, he isn’t leaving a place where he is playing to go somewhere and try and fight for his spot.

“Now, not that there is anything wrong with fighting for a spot, but do you choose a place where there’s a possibility you’re not playing?

“That makes no sense whatsoever. Sancho’s not a long-term guy now – he needs to play.”
