Liverpool and Jadon Sancho is a saga that will keep on going until the winger moves club. The 19-year-old winger has been linked with a move to Anfield for months, The Telegraph recently reported that Jürgen Klopp wanted to sign the winger before he moved over to Germany.
The pacy wide man has been in scintillating form this season, despite discipline issues. He has registered five goals and six assists in 10 appearances in the Bundesliga this term.
Last season Sancho netted 12 and assisted 14 in 26 Bundesliga matches. His stats for his age are simply incredible. At just 19-years-old he has been tearing up the Bundesliga for two seasons and looks set to be one of the leading lights of his generation.
Pretty much every major club in Europe will be monitoring the situation at Borussia Dortmund. According to the latest reports out of Germany: Liverpool are favourites to sign Jadon Sancho and the player could leave as early as January. Kopites have reacted to the news which was broken on Twitter by pundit Jan Aage Fjortoft.
From a very good source in Germany:
Klopp and Liverpool favorite to get Dortmund-player Sancho.
Sancho wants to leave the club already in January

One fan joked that our poor defensive record this year has been an intentional move to save money for a big Sancho bid.
Klopp has told the boys to concede one goal in every game so that he doesn’t have to pay their clean sheet bonuses and we can get #Sancho2020 rolling early. 4D chess from the main fella. https://t.co/GZiu6bUaeF

Whilst one supporter pointed out that we saved money over the summer too, spending a pittance.
We spent 4m last summer for this reason – we are making a big signing in either January or summer 2020.

This Kopite pointed out that the pundit who broke the news has a strong track record when it comes to transfers.
Fjortoft, who’s saying Liverpool/Klopp in pole position for Sancho and that Sancho wants to leave in January, has gotten Özil-Arsenal, Klopp-LFC,
Mustafi-Arsenal and Auba-Arsenal correct early on the last few years. But even if Sancho-LFC is true, there’s a lot that can stop it.

Another Red was gasping for a January arrival, insisting that we need to bolster our wide options.
Whether it’s Sancho or not, I‘d love us to buy in January. We’ve done so well to get this far, but an injection of someone unpredictable into the attack might be just what we need. Ox isn’t effective there and Origi is better from the bench.

And of course, there was one fan that just doesn’t want to be hurt again.
These are the kind of tweets that really disappoint me later on in life because I get over excited.
