Liverpool have to pay an even heftier price for Jadon Sancho

Liverpool was put off by his price once, now they have to pay more.

Ah, the Jadon Sancho saga takes yet another turn. It all begun with Liverpool when they first showed interest, but they were initially put off by his £100m price valuation, which is to be expected given the Coronavirus market crash.

However, reports this week have suggested that Liverpool is moving back in for the Borussia Dortmund forward. According to the Telegraph, though, they may be swayed away yet again. This is because his price has increased, the English outlet reports, to £115m.

In all honesty, I can’t blame Dortmund from their perspective. They don’t have to sell him since he is one of their better performers this season and it’s not like he’s running out of contract anytime soon. Especially given the state of the market, they may not be able to sign a worthwhile replacement, either.

I don’t know whether or not Jadon Sancho will make the move this summer. However, one thing’s for sure, playing in the Premier League will give England fans a chance to learn more about him as a player before he inevitably gets the call up from Gareth Southgate to play in the Euros.

I do feel like Liverpool won’t want to sign Sancho anymore after they see his new valuation. They may wish to persuade Dortmund with a swap-deal, but I can’t think of any players they’d be willing to let go since their attack is rather deflated in depth anyway. That was one of the main reasons for signing Sancho.

Of course, there are still other options for Liverpool to consider, varying across a range of different price tags. Those include Kai Havertz, Ryan Fraser and Adama Traore, of course, Timo Werner is no longer an option.
