McAteer urges Liverpool boss Klopp to choose Sancho over Werner

Liverpool hero Jason McAteer says they should move for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho ahead of RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.

McAteer believes his former club would be better served by rivalling Manchester United for the signature of Sancho this summer.

"Sancho will be a great acquisition," he told beIN SPORTS. "I think Liverpool should go out and buy him. "He can be a great player for Liverpool and I think we need to take pressure off the front three."

On the Reds' oft-discussed interest in Werner, he added: "It's whether he is the right fit.

"We know Jurgen doesn't just venture into the transfer market to buy a superstar just because someone is available or because he has got money in his pocket.

"He has got to meet a criteria and a work ethic and a style of play. I feel Sancho is more of that criteria than Timo Werner is but Sancho might have out-priced himself for what Liverpool want.

"He might want to go to United, which is the talk at the minute. Timo Werner might be the player we go for if we don't get Sancho."
