Liverpool transfer target Jadon Sancho showed that he’s well worth his significant price tag with an exceptional display against RB Leipzig last weekend.
The Borussia Dortmund winger has been linked with the Reds recently following a failed move to Manchester United during the summer transfer window and based on his recent performances for the Black and Yellows, he would surely prove to be a superb addition to Jurgen Klopp’s side, no matter the price.
As per SofaScore, the England international picked up a 9.5 rating for his performance against Leipzig on Saturday, which comfortably ranked him as the best player on the pitch.
During the 90 minutes Sancho, who reportedly earns £160,000-a-week, would score and assist, whilst 34/39 of his passes would find a Dortmund teammate.
He was also successful in 2/3 of his dribbles and won 4/5 of his duels during his time on the pitch, suggesting that he regularly had the better of the Leipzig defenders.
Perhaps most impressively, the former Manchester City man would play as many as seven key passes during the game, whilst also creating two big chances.
Considering how Liverpool have struggled in front of goal in recent Premier League fixtures, it could definitely be argued that they are missing someone of Sancho’s obvious quality, as he showed in his performance against a strong Leipzig side just how influential he can be in the attacking third.
Bayern Munich manager Hans-Dieter Flick has clearly been impressed with the impact Sancho has had since moving to the Bundesliga, as he sung his praises in 2020, saying:
“He is a great talent and has enormous qualities. That’s why you simply have to acknowledge that Dortmund has a very good player there.”
Therefore, even though the 20-year-old is currently valued at £90 million by Transfermarkt, Michael Edwards and the Liverpool board must consider bringing him to Anfield in the near future, as he has proved himself to be a world-class player in his time with Dortmund, having registered 40 goals and 54 assists in 119 appearances for the Bundesliga side.
