Terry Vouches For Borussia Dortmund Ace’s Quality: Would He Be A Good Fit In Lampard’s Chelsea?

In a recent YouTube video uploaded by renowned British entrepreneur and avid Chelsea fan Frank Khalid, former Stamford Bridge skipper John Terry was full of praise for English sensation Jadon Sancho. The former Chelsea captain believes that the Borussia Dortmund ace would be a good addition to Frank Lampard’s youthful Chelsea side. Terry then went on to claim that Sancho is undoubtedly one of the best young players in the world right now, and advocates why the Blues should move for him.

The Blues legend then spoke about all the positives that have occurred at Stamford Bridge this season, including the brilliant manner in which Lampard has handled the integration of some of the younger stars. Terry took the names of players like Billy Gilmour, Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Reece James, but admitted that despite the endless list of graduates, signing Sancho would make them a better team.

What Makes Jadon Sancho Such An Attractive Prospect For Chelsea?

The youngster was a former Manchester City academy graduate, who was forced to find a move away from the Etihad to get regular playing time. Although the Citizens probably didn’t expect him to develop at such a rapid pace, it’s safe to say that the Englishman has matured into one of the most potent wingers in the modern game. His most significant selling point is the fact that even the strongest defenders can’t necessarily do much to stop Sancho when he’s in full flow.

Adept at beating a man for pace, the Dortmund star boasts a brilliantly balanced skill-set, with an added emphasis on dribbling and finishing. The fact that the youngster is from London would surely come as a boost to Chelsea, while his relationships with the likes of Mount, Hudson-Odoi and Abraham through national team duty simply cannot be downplayed either.

The 19-year-old has an almost unbelievable record of 14 goals and 15 assists from his 23 Bundesliga appearances this season, while he’s even managed two goals and two assists in the Champions League. Moreover, the youngster seems to boast excellent maturity and composure while on the pitch, as can be seen from his disciplinary record this season, which reads just one yellow card all campaign. Averaging more than two key passes, shots, and successful dribbles per game, there’s no denying that Sancho is one of the most exciting dribblers in Europe at the moment.

Why Chelsea Must Go All Out For Sancho This Summer?

When John Terry publicly vouches for a player and says that he would be a good fit at Chelsea, you can bet your bottom pound that the Blues chiefs are considering his opinion. Moreover, there has been no shortage of links between Sancho and the West London club since the winter, meaning that there is an obvious interest from the Blues’ end.

Also, the injuries to Christian Pulisic and Tammy Abraham have cost the Blues dearly this season. Although they have a reasonably deep squad, there were various fixtures along the way where they could’ve won with a better front-line. The addition of a high-profile winger like Sancho would not only act as a confidence booster to the current Chelsea players but would also send a statement of intent out to the rest of the Premier League.

Nikhil has been an avid Chelsea fan for as long as the concept of time has existed and rumours say that he even bleeds blue. Having lived in the UK for 3 years, Nikhil is said to have an excellent understanding of the atmosphere surrounding the English game. His role model is the greatest manager of all time - Jose Mourinho.
