Liverpool tell BVB (& boast several advantages): We want Sancho

Liverpool have approached Borussia Dortmund about a price for Jadon Sancho.

The Daily Mail says Liverpool have informed Dortmund of their desire to sign 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 Jurgen 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.
