Liverpool have been linked with the good and the great in the last few months but nothing has come to fruition as of yet. The Reds were tipped for one of their biggest transfer windows in recent memory but the global health crisis has put the kibosh on those plans. This does mean, however, that the club could go big next year – they are being tipped to do so by a legend of the shirt. Jamie Carragher has backed Liverpool to challenge for Jadon Sancho in 2021.

Liverpool and Jadon Sancho

Liverpool have been linked with a move for Jadon Sancho since before the season ended.

Back in June, The Independent reported the Reds’ interest, claiming that the player had been made aware.

The interest is understandable. There are few players with more potential than the Dortmund winger, Andros Townsend once tipped the youngster for a Ballon d’Or.

Carragher backs Liverpool to target Sancho

The Reds don’t have the financial muscle for megabucks buys this summer.

The club have dialled in their plans after the global health crisis caused a significant loss of revenue.

Jamie Carragher believes that Liverpool could go after Jadon Sancho next summer instead, the legend told The Mirror:

 

“United have got a clear run at Sancho now – but that will change if he’s still at Dortmund next year. I’d be very surprised if Liverpool didn’t try to sign him next summer.”

What RTK has to say

Liverpool signing Jadon Sancho would be one massive show of intent.

It does make sense that we would try and sign him next summer instead, we put this theory forward ourselves recently.

If the Englishman were to arrive then we would expect the club to move on one of the front three, or we could face a problem with the wage bill and squad rotation.

However, Sancho has shown that he can play in a central position if needed, could he come in and take on the still vacant Philippe Coutinho role next year?
