Former Red Jamie Carragher believes that Liverpool, like all the English teams, should be looking at signing Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho.

Sancho, who is set to depart Borussia Dortmund come the end of the season, has been linked with plenty of teams by various reports.

The Daily Mirror have suggested that Sancho is looking to make the move to Old Trafford. However, Carragher believes that Liverpool, like all the big English teams, should be looking to sign the youngster come the summer.

Carragher believes that Sancho could turn out to be a similar player to Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling.

Carragher told Sky Sports: “He’s an English player who I think will be desperate to come back, so I think he’ll be the hottest thing everyone in the Premier League will be looking to bring in.

“Will he be a hit? I think so. It’s a no-brainer, look at how well he has played in a top league with a top club under pressure. He’s playing week in, week out, his numbers are fantastic and his age is just perfect.”

Carragher added: “If you think about the development of Raheem Sterling at Manchester City, it feels like something similar could happen.

“It feels like he could be the next Raheem Sterling in terms of goals and assists numbers.”

Sancho would be a superb signing, which is why he is being linked to all the big clubs. However, it might be difficult to convince the 19-year-old to start off on the bench at Liverpool.

Sancho is not going to replace the likes of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino or Sadio Mane. With that being the case, he is more than likely eyeing off a move elsewhere.

The transfer fee might scare Liverpool off, also. As Sancho is English and young, he won’t come cheap.
