The 20-year-old has scored 31 goals and registered 42 assists since joining Dortmund in an £8million deal from Man City in 2017.

Sancho is one of several British youngsters playing in the Bundesliga, along with Ademola Lookman, Jonjoe Kenny, Rabbi Matondo, Ethan Ampadu, Lewis Baker and Reece Oxford.

The Sun claim 16-year-old Webster could be the next British youngster to move to Germany in a bid to play first-team football.

Webster was voted player of the tournament in the Kevin De Bruyne Under-15s Cup in Belgium last season and has been capped at England Under-16 level.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has placed his faith in the club’s youngsters this season by regularly playing Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mason.

Billy Gilmour, 18, was also handed his first Premier League start in a 4-0 win over Everton just before the coronavirus pandemic brought a halt to English football in March.

Despite Lampard’s track record of promoting academy stars to Chelsea’s first-team, Webster could still move to Dortmund this summer.

However, it remains to be seen whether he would train alongside Sancho, who has been heavily linked with a £100m-plus transfer to Manchester United.

Earlier this month, reports claimed ‘almost every detail’ of the deal for Sancho to join United has been agreed.
