‘I’d prefer’ – John Barnes tells Liverpool who Jurgen Klopp should sign instead of Jadon Sancho
John Barnes believes Liverpool should sign Ousmane Dembele instead of Jadon Sancho this summer.
The Borussia Dortmund forward has been consistently linked with Liverpool over the last 12 months and that speculation is set to continue ahead of the summer transfer window.
Sancho had looked set to join Manchester United last year only for the Old Trafford club to fail to agree terms with the Bundesliga side.
The player is currently with the England squad in the North East as they continue to prepare for the Euros, but Barnes believes Dembele is the better option for his old side.
He told BettingOdds.com: “First of all, any top player is going to be linked with the biggest clubs, whether that’s Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Real Madrid or Barcelona. So this whole idea of being linked with a club means nothing.
“You just have to look at the player that’s available, the amount he’s going to cost and the clubs that can afford him, then you can put two and two together and normally you’d get six or seven.
“As far as Jadon Sancho is concerned, out of the clubs rumoured to be interested in him I’d say that Manchester United is probably the best destination for him.
“At Liverpool I’d prefer a much more direct player. Jadon is very skilful and very tricky, but I believe that Ousmane Dembele would suit Liverpool out of all the potentially available players in that position.”
