Now scouts are planning to head to London for a double header of games on Friday, according to the Sun.

Arsenal Under 18s host Chelsea on Friday morning at the Shenley Training Centre.

In the evening, two of the top development sides in the country meet as Chelsea’s Under 23s take on Manchester City at Aldershot.

The games will be so well attended that there have even been jokes at German clubs about filling up planes for the pair of matches.

It is expected that every Bundesliga side will be represented at both games on Friday.

Sancho has had an astounding season, breaking into the England side and scoring eight goals in the Bundesliga.
