Jamie Carragher has claimed that Jadon Sancho’s transfer move would be “a no-brainer”, stating that any deal for the England international winger would ultimately prove value for money.
Borussia Dortmund are reportedly preparing to cash in on Sancho this summer but will demand a fee in the region of £100million with claims that Liverpool have already been in contact with the Bundesliga club to show their interest in signing him.
The 19-year-old departed from the Premier League in 2017 when he left Manchester City in the search of regular first team football but after 12 goals and 13 assists so far this campaign it seems that he could soon be on the move again.
In an interview with the the Sky Sports Football Weekend Preview Podcast, former Liverpool defender Carragher, talking about the potential move said:
“He’s an English player who I think will be desperate to come back, so I think he’ll be the hottest thing everyone in the Premier League will be looking to bring in.
“Will he be a hit? I think so. It’s a no-brainer, look at how well he has played in a top league with a top club under pressure. He’s playing week in, week out, his numbers are fantastic and his age is just perfect.”
He also added:
“I think he’ll have his pick of top clubs in the Premier League, and though the fee may look eye-watering, I think it’ll be one of them that over time will look cheap.
“You’re going to get a good player for 10 years there if you keep him at your club.
“If you think about the development of Raheem Sterling at Manchester City, it feels like something similar could happen.
“It feels like he could be the next Raheem Sterling in terms of goals and assists numbers.”
