Liverpool have reportedly been given some hope of sealing a move for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho in the following few weeks.
Though, this could mean waiting until the summer to sign the England international winger in a similar deal to the one they did with RB Leipzig for Naby Keita last season.
This would also be similar to how Chelsea ended up joining Christian Pulisic from German giants this year, with the young USA international then heading back to the Bundesliga side on loan for the remainder of 2018/19 campaign.
A piece from Empire of the Kop explains the situation, citing a claim made by reliable German football journalist Raphael Honigstein.
“A Christian Pulisic-type sale and lease-back arrangement like the €67 million deal that kept the Chelsea-bound American for a further six months in black and yellow colours in 2018-19 is seen as a theoretical option but also undesirable,” he said.
Liverpool have recently been tipped as the favourites for Jadon Sancho’s signature, and it seems clear the 19-year-old winger would make an excellent fit at Anfield.
Still, he’s also been massively linked with big names like Barcelona, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United, so it could be a close battle for his signature.
