Dazzling Dortmund crush Leverkusen to go back into top spot

Arsenal are unlikely to make a move for Sancho any time soon given the fact they shattered their record transfer fee last month to sign Nicolas Pepe, who cost them £72million.

"Jadon Sancho has the world at his feet and there's going to be an almighty auction for him next summer at this rate", the former Gunners midfielder told the Daily Star.

Sancho bucked the trend to move to Germany, turning down a £30,000-a-week contract in the City academy to go to Dortmund and his fearless move has paid dividends.

Manchester United are understood to have stored tabs on Sancho's availability over the summer time however Crouch reckons, if the prospect to maneuver again to England presents itself, rivals Liverpool could be a greater wager for the winger. It's a hard league, a new culture, and he's been ripping it up. But he wanted to play and he's reaping the reward.

"Both his discussions with the club and mine with the consultants". He beats players, and he knows the game. He doesn't make bad choices when he gets into unsafe positions. I doubt he'll be available in January but next summer there will be a queue of clubs lining up.

He has joined the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Emirates Stadium, but Unai Emery may feel that he could fit another player of Sancho's ilk into his squad if the opportunity presents itself.

Manchester United was desperate to bring the youngster back to England but was thwarted by Dortmund in their efforts to sign the 19-year-old.

The Spaniard has now scored in all eight competitive games for both club and country this season, grabbing a total of 10 goals so far. "English, young, hungry and talented, that's all I need to know".

Aubameyang leads the way for the Gunners on goals, scoring three, while Lacazette has added two.

The Ivorian winger has also proven himself tough to defend against with a Premier League-high 15 take-ons completed.

Everything being said it seems as if Sancho is likely to leave Borussia Dortmund in the next summer transfer window but it is clear in this season his entire focus is on the BVB campaign as they try to look for Bundesliga, DFB Pokal and a deep run in UCL.
