Liverpool are in “pole position” to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, according to a new report by Le10 Sport.
The French magazine claims that the Reds are “not scared” by the 20-year-old’s asking price, even though Dortmund are expected to hold out for in excess of £100m.
Supporters are very sceptical about this latest rumour and are not convinced that the Merseyside club will be in the race to sign Sancho:

Considering Liverpool baulked at Timo Werner’s £53m release clause, it seems bizarre that Le10 Sport would even suggest that the club would be in contention to sign Sancho.
Bear in mind, this is the same publication which has been pedalling rumours that manager Jurgen Klopp has contacted Kylian Mbappe about moving to Anfield, and you can see that this latest story should be taken with a hefty pinch of salt.
Manchester United are believed to be in pole position for Sancho, with very few clubs able to match Dortmund’s exorbitant price tag.
