      Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund)
      Feb 13, 2020 08:20:40 am
      Dominic King for The Mail, who if memory serves me right broke the Minamino story.

      Says Liverpool have identified him as the next big transfer.



      Liverpool have informed Borussia Dortmund of their desire to sign Jadon Sancho this summer, with the German club expected to demand at least £100million for the 19-year-old England forward.

      Manchester City are also expected to bid for Sancho, who left the Etihad for Dortmund in the summer of 2017, while Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona are also interested.

      Liverpool are about to enter into a club-record kit deal with Sancho's sponsors Nike, and will hope manager Jürgen Klopp's connections with Dortmund, who he led for seven years, will work in their favour in pursuit of the Londoner.

      Sancho is also good friends with Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jordan Henderson. And he is close to Rhian Brewster, on loan at Swansea from Liverpool, the pair having helped England win the Under 17 World Cup in 2017.

      Klopp admitted in January it would be 'very difficult' to improve on his squad, but he has also been open about his admiration for Sancho.

      Speaking last February, Klopp praised his former club for their shrewd £8m capture of Sancho and said they had an advantage because England's big clubs rarely do business with each other.

      He said: 'Buying English players is a smart idea because we would never have a chance to get Sancho. We are not blind — we saw him, we liked him and then we think, "Can we get him?" No. Because English clubs don't sell to other English clubs.'

      Since moving to Germany, Sancho has become one of world football's most exciting young attacking talents and broken into Gareth Southgate's senior England squad.

      He is in outstanding form, with 12 goals and 14 assists in just 19 Bundesliga games this season. Last month he became the youngest player to reach 25 Bundesliga goals.

      If we are intent on bringing in both Werner and Sancho, then we are definitely selling.....

      Wolves have always been a fan of him and they might lose Jimenez as well. Origi might also want more playing minutes. Cant see him staying if both Werner and Sancho are arriving!

      I've got to be honest and say i know more about him causing trouble than whether he would fit into the team.

      With our policy of signing players with good solid character backgrounds and if all the talk of him being a bit of a disrespectful sh*t are true do you think Jürgen would want him?

      That is an extremely tasty forward line, but with that we would have to start rotating more to keep them all happy.

      In: Sancho & Werner

      Out: Origi, Shaqiri, Lallana, Clyne, Lovren, Lonergan, Wilson, Grujic, Karius.

      Promote some youth.

      Happy with the In's although I also want another LB as cover for Robbo, as for the Outs, I'm happy with that except if we get rid of Lovren then I think we will also need to buy one more CB, no one in the youth ranks is ready to step up in that position yet although Hoever is pretty close.

      Thats what I was thinking as well. Look at the possible money that could be generated.

      30m, 25m, Free, Free, 10m, Free, 20m, 20m, 5m.. that's 100m right there! Peter spoke about self-sustenance last week and we pay with what we generate. With Nike in the bag, Sancho "can" happen if both parties, the club and most importantly the player, want it to happen.

      But just feel we wouldnt dip our hands into the 100mil market yet! Probably just Werner, a left-footed midfield player(?) and a CB if Lovren departs. Think we'll make do with Larouci/Lewis/Milner for another season at LB.

      I'd be hopeful that the club is looking for someone that can do what Gomez did, play either position in the defense.
      The post was mostly to show that the outgoings are potentially there to generate funds.

      Klopp has spoken highly of Sancho last year. It's more me wishing for a transfer, and maybe Nike funds/marketing/muscle makes it more likely.

      I cant say I have seen too much of this lad and only know of his reputation. I would urge caution if people are expecting too many changes if this squad goes all the way this season Jürgen will be loathe to make too many changes in or out.

      Pearce saying he can’t see it happening. Probably a good chance of it happening then given he’s usually wrong or just jumps on the bandwagon of everyone else’s reports when something does happen.

      The money is going bonkers now for players. I guess its going to have to be a massive signing for anyone to even get near this team of champions

      Maybe, although given our depth now I don't think there will be that many signings in total, so if we do want to go for someone specific the budget is there to go for them.

      Oh yea, we definitely have the money...and I could see us maybe paying that for a player like a Virgil or Allison where we had a position of need and a world class player like that was available. In this case, Sancho would just be a really nice to have addition that might not even break into the starting 11 right away. That kind of money for a player in that situation is what I'm just not seeing.

      That's not to say I don't think the kid would be worth it. Look at what Pulisic went for....Sancho is more proven and he's English so there's that as well.

      If we did spend that on a player he definitely wouldn't be coming in to share a position with someone.

      The article starts with him saying the club have told Dortmund they want to sign him, but then there's nothing else to indicate how he knows this, who told him, who said what to who... - the rest of the article is basically just saying that Sancho is a good player.

      Most of the transfers Klopp and Edwards have done you don't hear about them until just before they are announced. Virgil was an exception because of the tapping up bit and I guess Naby Keita was one talked about for quite a while before it actually happened (and then the actual arrival was delayed a year).  So if this is legit it would go against the trend in that regard.

      We'll see...

      I guess it also could affect the other players if this lad comes in on more money than some of the top earners now. The balance in all aspects of this squad seems perfect at present I cant see any risks being taken with this.

      True this, the wage issue have to be managed carefully, but any successful club has to deal with it. Can't help but feel Sancho would be immense. More of a concern would be his attitude and whether he upsets the team spirit Klopp carefully cultivated over the past few years. If he can deal with this, then I wouldn't hesitate. I've seen him play a number of times and he already looks immense. Fast, creative, aggressive and still so young. On paper, perfect Klopp and Liverpool player.

      On top of this, the past month has shown me that we're getting a little too close to complacency. A world class talent to challenge established players may well be necessary now. I don't want us to become a high turnover buying club, but the occasional investment in young ones like Sancho is pretty sound.
