It was Liverpool where the Jadon Sancho conundrum first began.

The Jadon Sancho conundrum has been dragged out for a long period of time, as is the case in many summer transfer windows. It always seems to be that one young player is the topic of interest each summer, with Liverpool being the catalyst for this summer’s narrative.

They were first linked with Sancho several months ago, when it was thought Jurgen Klopp wanted to add to his fearsome attack, which is considered to be one of if not the strongest in the world. However, several months down the line and now crowned a Premier League champion, Klopp has altered his stance slightly.

While he still believes it would be great to see Sancho in a Liverpool shirt, as I’m sure many of the fans would agree with him, he doesn’t see it as a real possibility anytime soon according to the Liverpool Echo.

This probably means that the Liverpool board are looking into signing alternatives, preferably cheaper alternatives that could still act as a backup to the likes of Sadio Mane. Although, it’s important they are not deadwood players and that they can mount a serious challenge to get into the starting XI.

One name that springs to my mind initially is Ryan Fraser, who of course will be available for free this summer given the end of his contract is approaching. While Liverpool will have to fight off interest from Arsenal and Tottenham, this shouldn’t sway them from looking into Fraser as an option. After all, they are the champions of England.

Fraser is a dynamic and creative wide-man who likes to play on the front foot, in the face of the opposition. This is exactly what should attract Klopp to the Bournemouth winger, as I’m sure the links with only thicken in the weeks to come.
