Borussia Dortmund forward, Jadon Sancho will be a massive asset to Liverpool if he wraps up a switch to Anfield, Emile Heskey has said.
Heskey believes the winger can help freshen up Jurgen Klopp’s squad if he puts pen to paper.
According to him, Sancho is the exact type of player Klopp needs to look at in the summer because his team is set to move into a transitional phase in the coming years.
He added that the Englishman’s age also makes him a brilliant addition to the squad since he will be offering longevity at the club.
His words, “When you look at Jadon Sancho’s age, he will always be an asset to Liverpool,”
“In two to three years, you’ve got an ageing Liverpool side – even though in this day and age and with the fitness levels of all the players, age is nothing.
“But having someone young, fresh and dynamic coming in, it will only add to the squad and I think that is where Jurgen is going to be looking at next. What can he add to the squad that is going to give Liverpool that little bit more longevity.”
“When you look at the Liverpool frontline, you’ve got Mane and Salah as the goal-getters and that is exactly what they do well,”
“They command respect from defenders as a result. You’d like to think that Sancho has the quality to get in the side, but it will be very tough to get in ahead of Salah or Mane.”
