Liverpool become favourites to sign wonderkid Jadon Sancho in the January transfer window

Liverpool have become favourites to sign the highly sought after Jadon Sancho in the January transfer window.

The Reds are sitting comfortably at the top of the Premier League with second-place Leicester eight points behind after 15 games already.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are also looking to retain their Champions League trophy and might look to add more quality in their flying frontline.

Sancho has been touted as one of the best talents in world football and is regarded as a generational talent especially considering his output in the Bundesliga at such a young age.

The 19-year-old moved to Germany from Manchester City for a super low price of £7m in the summer of 2017 and after one season of getting used to the demands of top-flight football, he has flourished.

Since the 2018/19 season, he has registered 20 assists, a tally that has not been matched in the Bundesliga.

The winger had a breakout campaign last season contributing an incredible 29 goals in all of the 34 league games at the tender age of 18.

His performances in the league helped Dortmund finish second place in what was manager Lucien Favre’s first season but having led by as much as 9 points, from rivals Bayern Munich, they will have been extremely disappointed to have surrendered their lead and let the Bavarians win the league by one point.

The English international’s performances in the Champions League did leave a lot to be desired for as he only scored one, albeit against Atletico Madrid in a 4-0 rout.

Odds of Jadon Sancho’s Next Club

Liverpool – 4/1

Man Utd – 8/1

Chelsea – 20/1

Man City – 20/1

PSG – 20/1

Sancho’s brilliance last campaign helped him earn an England debut last October but it took until his 8th game for the Three Lions to score.

The electric winger scored twice and also assisted for Gareth Southgate’s men against Kosovo in what was a 5-3 win in the Euros qualification.

His talent and potential are there for all to see but it is unlikely that Klopp requires such a talented winger considering the front three currently at Liverpool.

Despite Mohamed Salah hitting a rough patch recently, he is still one of the world’s best players as showcased by his insane goal record and his recent fifth-place finish in the Ballon d’Or voting.

Salah’s teammate and fellow winger Sadio Mane has been exceptional the past year and has helped the Reds massively when Salah has not been performing to his usual standards.

The former Southampton man finished ahead of Salah in the Ballon d’Or voting, finishing fourth and was voted as the best player by the winner Lionel Messi.
