The interest of Premier League leaders Liverpool in Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has been confirmed by a report from the stables of popular media channel ESPN.
It was revealed that the Reds want to sign the England international player ahead of the resumption of the transfer market next month but a deal is largely unlikely.
The aforementioned publication went on to say that the possibility of the transfer happening in January is remote and that next summer is more likely unless a deal would be agreed next month ahead of the summer of 2020.

Liverpool can borrow a leaf out of the Chelsea book after their Premier League rivals agreed on a deal to sign American international Christian Pulisic in January 2019 for a fee of around £57m but the player didn’t move to Stamford Bridge until this summer.
The Premier League pacesetters have already signed a player ahead of the winter transfer market next month with Japanese international Takumi Minamino expected to join the team as from January 1 after his £7.25m release clause at Red Bull Salzburg FC of Austria was activated by Liverpool.
The 24-year-old leaves Red Bull Salzburg five years after joining them from Cerezo Osaka FC of Japan.
