According to a report from the Daily Mail, Liverpool, Man United and Man City are all keeping tabs on Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho – but the Reds still apparently have reservations over his lofty price tag amid the global pandemic.
Sancho, who has started 25 Bundesliga games for Dortmund this season, scoring an impressive 17 goals and assisting 16 others, is currently at the centre of interest from Liverpool and our two rivals – with the club potentially weighing up their options over a move.
Could Liverpool snap up Jadon Sancho?
Yes, make it happen
No, far too expensive
The £190,000-per-week attacker has reportedly been on the Reds’ radar over these last few months as Jurgen Klopp and co eye alternative options to our stellar front three – but the Mail can now reveal Liverpool’s stance on bringing the Englishman to Anfield.
While we are apparently in the queue alongside United and City, the board still have reservations over two issues in particular – Sancho’s would-be price tag and his disciplinary record away from the pitch.
The 20-year-old would apparently command a £100 million asking price, with Klopp and the club’s recent stance on big money moves potentially being a deciding factor.
Liverpool opted against paying Timo Werner’s £48 million release clause, giving Chelsea the opportunity to snatch his signature, but would Sancho be worth more than double that fee?
According to WhoScored, the ‘special‘ forward player averages more completed dribbles per 90 than current star winger Mohamed Salah whilst also accumulating a superior amount of key passes over our front three.
The pedigree appears to be evident, but Sancho’s price tag, as per this Mail report, could be a huge obstacle.
