Liverpool issues with Jadon Sancho transfer as Reds set to be ‘priced out’ – Mirror Online

Liverpool are long-term admirers of Jadon Sancho.

But they are set to be priced out of a summer bidding war for the England international, according to the Liverpool Echo .

Sancho has been monitored by the Reds since his days as a Manchester City youth product before ditching the Premier League for the Bundesliga in 2017.

He has excelled with Borussia Dortmund to emerge as one of Europe’s most in-demand talents – and it is likely to mean Liverpool miss out on the chance to land the winger.

Manchester United and Chelsea are set for a £120million battle for the signature of the 19-year-old, a fee Liverpool have decided they are unwilling to pay due to significantly less need for Sancho compared to rivals in the hunt.

Whilst Sancho is believed to have been mentioned as Liverpool consider their options to keep Jurgen Klopp’s side at the top of the tree, his potential Premier League move is not set to see him land at Anfield.

With Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane still in their prime, the Reds do not have the need to splash big money on Sancho, certainly not to the extent of Manchester United and Chelsea as they look to solve their lack of creativity.

Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker both arrived for huge fees, but both were in priority positions as the Reds looked to take their next step, and Liverpool’s transfer policy means they will not repeat the trick for Sancho.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes signing Sancho would be a “no-brainer” for top flight clubs, however.

Asked if Sancho would be a success if he returned to the Premier League, Carragher told Sky Sports: “I think so.

“It’s almost like a no-brainer, look at how well he’s playing in a top league with a top club where there’s pressure.

“He’s playing week in, week out, his numbers are fantastic and his age is just perfect.

“I think when the transfer is done wherever the lad decides to go, I think he’ll able to make his pick with the top clubs in the Premier League, I think the fee will look eye-watering but over time you’ll think in the end it’s cheap because you’re going to get a player there for 10 years if you keep him at your club.

“If you think about the development of Raheem Sterling at Manchester City and also Liverpool, it feels like something similar.

“He’s almost like the the next Raheem Sterling in terms of getting great numbers with assists and goals.”
