And the German club are looking at offering the teenager regular football next season in Bundesliga and a chance in the Champions League.

Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann is looking to bolster his squad after qualifying for Europe’s top competition.

And Ampadu can give him options at centre-back and defensive-midfield.

The German club see him as a bright British star of the future and have also targeted the likes of Ademola Lookman at Everton.

Meanwhile, Frank Lampard has given a lifeline to Chelsea hate-figure Jorginho.

The Italian midfielder was a scapegoat last season and was booed by his own fans for always passing sideways.

But new boss Lampard says last summer’s £57million signing is becoming a leader.
