Liverpool opt against move for £120m-rated winger

Jadon Sancho news

Sancho won't head to Liverpool this summer

Liverpool have reportedly decided against making an approach for Jadon Sancho after learning of the £120m asking price of Borussia Dortmund.

The 20-year-old has become of the most sought-after youngsters over the past year and he has attracted interest from the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United.

However, according to The Express, Jurgen Klopp's side are reluctant to make a move for the England international after getting to know of the hefty price tag.

The same publication states that the club are content with the presence of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah as the widemen and don't feel the need to spend a club-record fee on a player, who may not be assured a starting role.

Sancho has contributed 17 goals and 19 assists for Dortmund this term. He is said to be keen on a return ahead of next season and reports have suggested that United could be leading the race for his services.

The Red Devils are said to have made initial contact with Sancho's agent.
