Liverpool are reportedly the favourites to clinch the possible January transfer of Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.
In colossal news breaking this afternoon, advanced journalist Jan Aage Fjortoft claims he’s heard from a reliable source in Germany that the Merseyside Reds and Jurgen Klopp look the most likely to win the race for Jadon Sancho.
He continues in the tweet below that the English starlet could be on the move as early as this winter, which has also previously been suggested elsewhere.
It remains to be seen how nice this will prove to be after so much speculation surrounding Jadon Sancho since his breakthrough in the Bundesliga, but it sounds increasingly like things could be about to get very impressive for Liverpool.
The Independent recently linked the 19-year-old winger with LFC and rivals Man Utd, stating he could cost around £100million, with his club increasingly open to letting him go in the middle of the campaign.
Liverpool don’t precisely look desperate for new signings in the attack, but it’s hard to turn down an opportunity like this for one of the most excellent young players in the world.
Jadon Sancho has been a joy to watch in his time with Dortmund Borussia, though, as noted by the Independent, his relationship with the club has soured this campaign, with several top European sides also interested in his possible availability.
Jurgen Klopp will no doubt wish to revive his career at Anfield if he does manage to sign him, but this would be a massive blow for Man Utd.
Jadon Sancho looks precisely the type of signing the Red Devils need right now, with their attack struggling for some time, and with Norwegian boss surely in need of more investment in long-term star quality players like this.
