If Jadon Sancho ends up joining Liverpool this summer, then the Reds may have to thank Trent Alexander-Arnold for doing his best agent work.
In an Instagram Live chat with Michael Dapaah, the England international said (via Sky Sports): “If he came to us, he’d make our team better. So, I’d be more than happy for him to come because I played with him at England and he’s a special, special, special, special talent.”
And after hearing about the right-back’s comments on Sancho, Liverpool fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on what he had to say.
I Would have him he’s young very talented plus he’s English #YNWA

I’d prefer Depay. Not only to because of Man Utd.

One Liverpool fan however questioned whether Sancho would even make it into their starting eleven, and suggested that their front three would remain the same even if he arrived.
If he came to Liverpool our front 3 would be Salah Firmino Mane

With the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane as wide options for Jurgen Klopp, a move for Sancho isn’t exactly an absolute priority for Klopp this summer.
He already has two bona-fide world class wingers to call upon, and with finances set to be restricted all across the board given the circumstances, getting a deal done for Sancho shouldn’t necessarily be their number one focus.
So whilst Alexander-Arnold may have planted the seeds for Sancho to consider Anfield, it may not pan out to be the case in the long-run.
