Liverpool have had a magnificent transfer window. Kopites have been overjoyed with the Reds’ business. Michael Edwards has managed to almost turn a profit despite signing Kostas Tsimikas, Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota. Some fans are already looking ahead to next season. James Pearce has outlined the scenario needed for Liverpool to consider signing Jadon Sancho.
Jadon Sancho superstar
There is no denying that Jadon Sancho is one of the most exciting footballers on the planet at the minute. The Englishman has been tearing the Bundesliga apart in recent seasons.
The winger managed 17 goals and 16 assists in 32 appearances in the league last season.
He has been attracting attention from throughout Europe as a result, Manchester United being the most documented interested party.
Borussia Dortmund set a firm £108m price tag on the winger’s head.
Pearce on Liverpool and Sancho
Speaking to the Anfield Agenda, James Pearce detailed the circumstances needed for Liverpool to consider a move for Jadon Sancho.
Pearce suggested that whilst the club may want the winger, a deal doesn’t make sense at the minute, saying:
“We know full well that [Jurgen] Klopp’s a massive fan of his but I think it would all depend [on] what happened in that striking department because at the moment it’s so well stocked.
“I would only see Liverpool even contemplating a deal for Sancho in summer 2021 if they were looking to replace a frontline attacker.
“I think it’ll become a talking point, maybe if he does stay put at Dortmund for this season, but I wouldn’t get too excited about that at the moment.”
What RTK has to say
We have said this a few times, the Reds won’t make a major forward signing until they move one of the current crop on.
However, given the Reds’ track record in recent years, it wouldn’t be a surprise if they were to cash in on a superstar in the interest of building for the future.
Jadon Sancho is just 20-years-old, FSG could be tempted by the prospect of cashing in on one of their prized assets before their value decreases in order to bring in a player whose value is only going to increase over the next decade.
