Liverpool reportedly have ‘great interest’ in signing Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund next summer


There’s a case to be made that Liverpool have the strongest attack in Europe.

Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have been nearly unstoppable since the Egyptian arrived to complete the trio in 2017.

All three have been nominated for the 2019 Ballon d’Or award, a sign of their immense talent.

They scored 69 goals combined in all competitions last season as the Reds won a sixth European title.

A supporting cast of Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri among others has helped.

They’ve all contributed with key goals, like Adam Lallana did with his late equaliser against Manchester United on Sunday.

But it seems like the Reds are ready to make a serious upgrade on their attacking options.

Former midfielder Dietmar Hamann revealed on Sky90 that Liverpool have a “great interest” in signing Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

The 19-year-old winger has been a revelation in the Bundesliga, scoring 12 goals and providing 14 assists in the German top flight last season.

The battle to sign Sancho will be an intense one, but Hamann has heard that Liverpool are ready to put themselves in the mix next summer.

“What I hear is that Liverpool has great interest. I would imagine that next summer they could become one of the biggest interested parties,” the German said.

Manchester United have been linked with a move for Sancho, but Hamann believes the attacker’s previous relationship with Man City makes a move to Old Trafford tough.

Sancho joined Man City as a 15-year-old before he moved to Dortmund two years later.

“He’s from Manchester City and I do not know if he would come back again, and it’s a thing for Manchester United, too, if they’ve ever been to the rivals,” Hamann added.

An attacking group of Salah, Mane, Firmino and Sancho would be nigh-on impossible to stop.

Whichever team wants to sign him will need to pay an astronomical fee to do so.

But Liverpool, who are closing in on record-breaking kit deal with Nike, seem to be prepared to make it happen.
