They are being linked with young Frenchman Moussa Dembele, who can’t stop scoring for his Ligue 1 side Lyon this season, and German striker Timo Werner is equally in the Red Devils transfer targets.

However, United’s mission to bring Sancho back to ether English Premier League could summer a huge setback due to Liverpool’s interest in the former Manchester City academy product.

According to ex-city midfielder Dietmar Hamann, Klopp has a keen interest in the youngster and he is more than ready to compete with Solskjaer for his services in the next summer transfer market.

In an interview with Sky Germany, the former Cityzen claimed that Liverpool is looking forward to adding the England international to their front-line. He also doubts if the player would want to return to Manchester City after leaving the Etihad Stadium two years ago.

“What I hear is that Liverpool has great interest, I would imagine that next summer they could become one of the biggest interested parties.

Both clubs are expected to break the bank if they must sign the youngster because Borussia Dortmund will be looking to make huge profit from his sale.
