Jurgen Klopp has remained coy on Liverpool’s reported interest in Jadon Sancho, though suggested that the cost of the Borussia Dortmund star would be an ‘issue’ for the European champions.
Sancho has starred in German football since leaving Manchester City for the Bundesliga two years ago, establishing himself amongst the world’s most promising talents and securing a regular place in Gareth Southgate’s senior England squad.
The teenager has endured a difficult start to the new campaign amid disciplinary issues at Dortmund, and reports have now suggested that both club and player are prepared to part ways amid a host of interest from the Premier League and across Europe.
Liverpool have been reported to be amongst the favourites to sign the winger ahead of the January transfer window, while Manchester United have also been strongly linked, and while Klopp has lauded the ability of the 19-year-old, he has refused to confirm the club’s interest and says Sancho’s high value may prove problematic in securing a deal.
“He’s a very good player,” Klopp told the Liverpool Echo. “I have no clue where these kind of things are coming from, but it cannot come from us because we never speak about it.
“If we would be involved, nobody would know about it apart from a person who wouldn’t speak about it. There’s nothing to say.
“Cost? That’s one issue, 100 per cent that would be an issue. But there’s nothing to say about it.
“I know how it sounds, but I cannot change that. There’s nothing to say about it, which can mean there’s absolutely nothing to say about it.”
