Jadon Sancho: Could England international leave Borussia Dortmund this summer?

And, with a host of Premier League clubs hovering, the next few months will prove crucial for England forward Sancho - as well as Dortmund's own future.

The 20-year-old England international did not have an ideal start to the season, looking unfit and sluggish in his early outings, with some in Dortmund speculating his performances might have had something to do with the drama around his potential move to Manchester United last summer.

"Jadon was subconsciously set on a move," Dortmund's chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke later said, adding that he thought Sancho had become so preoccupied with the possibility that for a time it had cost him his usual easy style.

After Sevilla they meet local rivals Schalke in the Ruhr derby on Saturday, before playing Arminia Bielefeld in the Bundesliga and Borussia Monchengladbach in the quarter-finals of the German Cup.

Manager Edin Terzic, who replaced Lucien Favre in December, has yet to show he is capable of turning this struggling Dortmund side around.

With Marco Rose set to be in charge next season after announcing his departure from Monchengladbach, Terzic is essentially a lame duck in the managerial seat and a summer of transition could be seen as the perfect opportunity for some players to move on.
