Liverpool backed to sign Sancho or Mbappe if star is sold

Liverpool could well have a monumental summer transfer window ahead of them. The Reds were tipped to do big business last year but the pandemic curtailed any marquee signings. Given the relatively restrained spending last year we could see fireworks soon. Danny Murphy has backed Liverpool to sign Jadon Sancho or Kylian Mbappe if they sell one of their star forwards.

Mo Salah uncertainty

There has never been such uncertainty about Mo Salah’s future at Anfield.

The Egyptian King has smashed records for fun since arriving on Merseyside.

We thought it was a match made in heaven.

However, rumours have started emerging of his unhappiness at the club.

The winger also gave an interview in Spain which opened up the door to a blockbuster move to La Liga.

As he approaches his 30s there is a school of thought that the Reds will look to cash in on the forward in the summer.

Liverpool backed for Sancho or Mbappe

Should Liverpool sell Mo Salah in the summer they’ll need to replace him.

There is also perpetual interest in Sadio Mane.

If either of the forwards leaves we can expect a blockbuster replacement to come through the door.

Danny Murphy has backed Liverpool to sign Jadon Sancho or Kylian Mbappe if they cash in on one of their wingers. The ex-Anfield midfielder told Stadium Astro:

“If you are going to lose someone like Salah or [Sadio] Mane, it’s about having a plan in place about what you are going to do to replace the numbers.

“Liverpool’s team is heavily reliant on the front three so you can’t take a risk. You have to bring in a superstar.

“I don’t think there are too many out there that you put above Salah in terms of numbers and ability to win matches and score goals. Maybe a Sancho or Mbappe?

“Liverpool will be planning. They have done well in recruitment for some time now.”

What RTK has to say

Liverpool signing Sancho or Mbappe would surely only happen if we did lose one of the forwards.

If we sold Salah or Mane then we would expect the Reds to make a blockbuster move.

Sport cite Mbappe’s price tag as £160m whilst the Guardian have Sancho as valued at £108m.

Sancho and Mbappe certainly fit the bill, they’re both young and with the world at their feet.

Signing one of the aforementioned would sort out our front line for the next decade.
