Jurgen Klopp would like to have Jadon Sancho in his team but insists Liverpool securing his transfer this summer is highly unlikely.

Uncertainty surrounding Jadon Sancho’s future continues to grow despite the recent talks of Borussia Dortmund remaining confident over retaining the forward.

One of the hottest prospects in world football, 20-year old Sancho has been heavily linked with making a Premier League return after this season with Manchester United and Liverpool seemingly interested in him.

The newly-crowned Premier League champions, however, recently missed out on Timo Werner due to the pandemic reportedly putting them in a financial crisis. This suggests they will miss out on Sancho, who is valued at around €110 million, too.

Jurgen Klopp recently confirmed it saying it would come as a surprise to him if the young Englishman arrives at Anfield this summer.

“A red jersey would look very good on Jadon,” Klopp told BILD. “But I don’t think such a transfer will take place this summer.

“He is a very interesting player. If he moved to Liverpool, I would be the most surprised of all!

“This team doesn’t need a change. I cannot promise that we will dominate football now, nor do I know if it is time to talk about major upheavals. But I know that our goal is to keep the team together.”
