‘I’d rather’ – 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 constantly linked with Liverpool over the past 12 months and this speculation is likely to continue ahead of the summer transfer window.
Sancho had appeared ready to join Manchester United last year only for the Old Trafford club to fail to strike a deal with the Bundesliga.
The player is currently part of the England squad in the North East as they continue to prepare for the Euro, but Barnes believes Dembele is the best option for his former side.
He told BettingOdds.com: “First of all, any top player will be linked to the biggest clubs, be it Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Real Madrid or Barcelona. So this whole idea of being linked to a club doesn’t mean anything.
“You just have to look at who is available, how much he’s going to cost and which clubs can afford it, and then you can put two and two together and normally you would get six or seven.
“As for Jadon Sancho, among the clubs that would be interested in him, I would say Manchester United is probably the best destination for him.
“In Liverpool, I would prefer a much more direct player. Jadon is very skillful and very delicate, but I think Ousmane Dembele would suit Liverpool out of all the players potentially available for the position. “
