Borussia Dortmund plan transfer raid on Man City for wonderkid Jayden Braaf as they look to land next Jadon Sancho

BORUSSIA DORTMUND are looking to repeat their success with Jadon Sancho by raiding Manchester City for another hot prospect.

The Bundesliga giants have set their sights on 18-year-old winger Jayden Braaf, according to Christian Falk, although an agreement has yet to be struck between the two clubs.

Braaf has been compared to Sancho thanks to his explosive pace, creativity and goalscoring ability from wide areas.

Sancho has not looked back since quitting City for first-team action with Dortmund in 2017.

The London-born winger has established himself as an England regular and is now valued in excess of £100m.

Dutchman Braaf, who joined from PSV Eindhoven in 2018, has been frozen out of City’s Under-23 team despite being considered one of the club’s hottest prospects.

City are reportedly open to selling for around £8m with a buy-back clause inserted as part of a deal.

Braaf would be the third player in recent times to quit the Etihad for Dortmund if he makes the switch.

Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, 16, rejected a contract offer to follow in Sancho’s footsteps and join the Bundesliga giants earlier in the year.

Braaf annoyed Pep Guardiola after expressing his frustrations at failing to make the 18-man squad for January’s FA Cup tie against Port Vale.

He posted on Snapchat: “I must score 100 times to make senior debut man, damn.”

Braaf previously threatened to quit the club if he is not playing first-team football in the near future.

Speaking last year, he said: “I hope to be able to play somewhere in a first team next season. At Manchester City or somewhere else, we will see.

“A lot of people are talking to me, I have to keep going and this is an important season.”

Dortmund regularly keep tabs on promising talents in the English football system and snapped up 17-year-old midfielder Jude Bellingham from Birmingham for £25m last summer.

While other Bundesliga clubs have got in on the action in recent years.

Former Chelsea prospect Jamal Musiala, 17, has made 17 appearances for Bayern Munich.

Fulham loanee Ademola Lookman joined RB Leipzig from Everton for an initial £16m after impressing on loan in 2018.

And Tottenham‘s Ryan Sessegnon is currently enjoying a successful loan spell with Hoffenheim.
