The COVID-19 pandemic continues to dominate the world and football. With doubts over, when or maybe more importantly if football continues, transfer stories are a slight rest-bite from the pandemic.

Here are some stories doing the rounds in the European press:

Dortmund will not stand in Sancho’s exit

According to German publication Sport Bild, Bundesliga outfit Dortmund are prepared to sell highly-rated England winger Jadon Sancho in the next transfer window. However, BVB will only sell one of their star assets if a club comes up with an acceptable bet.

The winger has a contract with the German club until the summer of 2022, although the report suggests that the youngster and the club have come to an agreement to allow him to leave in the near future.

Sancho has been in sensational form this season, scoring 18 goals and producing 17 assists in all competitions this season. His form has led to the winger becoming one of the most in-demand players in the world game. Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing the winger.

Aubameyang available this summer

According to reports media reports, Arsenal are willing to allow Gabon international forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leave for a fee in the region of £30million when the transfer window opens.

The forward is without a doubt the Gunners star forward and has been prolific in front of goal for the north London team since his £56million move from Dortmund in January 2018.

The 30-year-old will only have 12 months left on his Arsenal contract this summer. Instead of losing him for no fee next summer, Gunners head coach Mikel Arteta is prepared to sell the striker to recoup funds to strengthen his squad for next season. Barcelona, Manchester City and Manchester United are all mooted as potential destinations for the forward.

Where will Sancho and Aubameyang be plying their trade next season?
