DORTMUND are lining up Club Brugge star Emmanuel Dennis as a replacement for Jadon Sancho.
The England ace, 19, has been linked with a move back to the Premier League this summer amid interest from Manchester United and Chelsea.
According to Belgian outlet HLN, the Bundesliga giants are already preparing for life without their top scorer.
It is reported that Dortmund have identified Nigeria international Dennis as a possible replacement for Sancho.
Lucien Favre’s side are keeping a close eye on the 22-year-old – who has scored five times in 18 league appearances this season.
Dennis has attracted a wide range of interest since he scored twice against Real Madrid in the Champions League in October.
Newcastle, Brighton, Sheffield United, Watford, AS Monaco and Sampdoria are among the clubs that have been linked to him.
But Dortmund will struggle to fill the void left by Sancho following his sublime spell of form this season.
He made history as he became the first player in Bundesliga history to score 25 goals before his 20th birthday.
Sancho has racked up 12 goals and 13 assists in 19 league games this term.
The German club have reportedly valued the Manchester City academy graduate at a whopping 127million.
Premier League giants Manchester United and Chelsea are set to battle it out for his signature this summer.
Bayern Munich are also said to be plotting a move for the 11-cap England international.
