Rumoured Liverpool transfer target Jadon Sancho has refused to commit his future to Borussia Dortmund, acting as a potential boost to the Reds.
The Lowdown: Sancho continually linked with Reds
The 21-year-old has emerged as one of the most exciting young forwards in Europe in recent years, scoring 48 goals and registering 62 assists in 134 appearances for Dortmund.
Sancho has been linked with a summer move to Liverpool numerous times this season, with Jurgen Klopp thought to view him as a great long-term option in his attack.
The Latest: Sancho coy over his future
Speaking after the game [via Daily Mail], the youngster discussed his future and did not rule out the prospect of a summer exit:
“Will I leave the club? I don’t know about my future.
“I am very happy here in Dortmund at the moment. I love the club, the fans and the team. They gave me my first professional start.”
The Verdict: Snap him up, Reds
Liverpool should do all they can to secure a move for Sancho this summer, although financial restraints may not make that possible following a tough 12 months around the world for football clubs.
Klopp needs to make sure that Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are adequately replaced once their time at Anfield is up – they are all now close to 30 – and the prolific Dortmund star would seem to be a perfect addition.
He is capable of thriving on either flank, cutting inside and hitting the byline, and his game should only become more perfected as he matures with age, becoming even more devastating in the final third.
