The Liverpool Echo have tipped the Reds to make a move for Schalke 04’s Rabbi Matondo.
Matondo, who made the move to Gelsenkirchen from Manchester City last year for £11.3m, is currently valued at just £7.2m and the Liverpool Echo believes that the Wales international could catch the eye of the European champions.
There is no doubt that Matondo would cost less than Sancho and the coronavirus pandemic is likely to have an impact on how much clubs can spend this summer. However, just because a player is cheaper, it doesn’t mean that they will prove to be better value for money.
Sancho has been in stunning form this term for Borussia Dortmund. He has managed a huge 17 assists and 19 goals in all competitions, and has seen his Transfermarkt value sky-rocket thanks to his performances. Matondo, meanwhile, has just one goal this term, his only one since making the move to the Bundesliga last year.
Would you like to sign Rabbi Matondo?
Liverpool, as one of the best teams in Europe, should be looking to bring in absolute top quality, which Sancho undoubtedly is. Whilst 19-year-old Matondo should have a bright future ahead of him, he still has plenty to prove. Similarities have between drawn with himself and Gareth Bale in the past – it is time to prove those claims right before being linked to a big move.
