Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho is continually being linked with a move to Liverpool, among other clubs.
The latest nugget of information on the apparent race for the winger comes from transfer guru Jan Aage Fjortoft, who claims Jurgen Klopp is ‘very keen’ on the 21-year-old, but there’s a massive catch.
According to the former professional, Liverpool would need to offload one of Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane to raise enough funds to complete the deal.
Take a look at Fjortoft’s tweet below.
Manchester United still going for him.
Liverpool/ Klopp also very keen on the player, but have to sell either Salah or Mané to have the necessary money for Sancho’s fee

It’s not the first time Klopp has been credited with interest in Sancho, as BILD journalist Christian Falk claims the German is a keen ‘admirer’ of the England international.
Liverpool’s apparent keenness on the 21-year-old is somewhat encouraging, especially as the winger is said to have a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ with Dortmund to leave the club under the right conditions – but offloading either Salah or Mane seems like an unnecessary risk, even if funds need to be raised.
