Jamie Carragher has urged Chelsea to sign Jadon Sancho after they completed a deal for Ajax midfielder Hakim Ziyech on Thursday.

Chelsea have reached an agreement with the Dutch club to sign the 26-year-old at the end of the season for an initial €40 million (£33.3m) fee, which could rise to €44m (£36.7m) after add-ons.

But the former Liverpool defender believes Chelsea should continue their spending by landing Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

The Bundesliga club are reportedly demanding at least £100m for the 19-year-old, who is also wanted by Manchester United and Liverpool.

‘I think it will tell you straight away that Chelsea are desperate for wide players,’ Carragher told Sky Sports when asked about Chelsea’s push to sign Ziyech.

‘I think with Pedro and Willian and the age they are at, and Willian every transfer window almost seems to get linked somewhere, or certainly Barcelona, so I’d imagine something would happen with him in the summer. I think Pedro is probably looking to go, he hasn’t played too much.

‘You would think wide players are the big thing that Chelsea are looking for.

‘And they would be putting their hat in the ring with Sancho no doubt, possibly one of the best young players in world football at the moment.

‘You see his stats for Borussia Dortmund for goals and assists, being an English player he’ll be desperate to come back, so I think he’ll be the hottest thing, everyone in the Premier League will be looking at to bring in.

‘Yes, I think the Ajax lad was outstanding last season in the Champions League.

‘He was a player actually I thought Liverpool may look at as well, he can play both sides, maybe as cover for Mane or Salah.

‘I think it was obvious from the transfer window in January that Frank Lampard wasn’t happy with what happened but it looks like they are trying to get some business done early.’

Asked if Sancho would be a success if he returned to the Premier League, Carragher replied: ‘I think so. It’s almost like a no-brainer, look at how well he’s playing in a top league with a top club where there’s pressure.

‘He’s playing week in, week out, his numbers are fantastic and his age is just perfect.

‘I think when the transfer is done wherever the lad decides to go, I think he’ll able to make his pick with the top clubs in the Premier League, I think the fee will look eye-watering but over time you’ll think in the end it’s cheap because you’re going to get a player there for 10 years if you keep him at your club.

‘If you think about the development of Raheem Sterling at Manchester City and also Liverpool, it feels like something similar.

‘He’s almost like the the next Raheem Sterling in terms of getting great numbers with assists and goals.’
