However, Chelsea and West Ham would both need to tempt him away from Leipzig as he looks to continue his development abroad.

Leipzig have snatched up some of England’s brightest talents in recent years, having persuaded the likes of Emile Smith-Rowe and Ademola Lookman to join the club for brief stints.

Bondswell spent eight years as part of Nottingham Forest’s academy between 2010 and 2018 before joining Leipzig.
