Liverpool have been tipped to complete a transfer for Jadon Sancho but only if one of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane or Roberto Firmino leave Anfield this summer. The England international is widely expected to leave Borussia Dortmund with Manchester United also interested.
Sancho has been in incredible form this season, netting 16 goals and providing 18 assists in all competitions.
That has led the 19-year-old to being linked with a summer transfer to Liverpool, United or Chelsea.
On a recent episode of The Agenda podcast, Caoimhe O’Neill discussed what it would take for Liverpool to seal a deal for Sancho though.
She said: “You feel like if Sancho was to move to Liverpool, it would have to be at a cost of losing Firmino, Mane or Salah, because Liverpool are quite precise in the transfer window.
“Would Sancho be starting? It could create an uncomfortable dynamic – you want the best players and you want as many of them as possible, but you still want it to be balanced.

“It is a tricky one with a lot of issues.”
Host Connor Dunn stated: “Sancho has got 16 goals and 18 assists in his last 31 games for Dortmund which is really impressive.
“But he’s likely to cost £100million plus and, though he might be moving on this summer, I just don’t think Liverpool are going to be paying that.”
O’Neill added: “There’s wage demands as well. If you’re paying £100million, you would think he would be becoming the top earner.
“That would wreak a little bit of havoc. But if Liverpool want him, they will go out and get him.”

Liverpool have also been linked with RB Leipzig star Timo Werner.
And the forward has thrown fuel onto the fire with his comments this weekend about playing under Jurgen Klopp.
“Jurgen Klopp is the best coach in the world,” he told Sky Germany.
“There is a lot to suggest that my style of play would suit there (Liverpool).”
Werner’s words came three days after he branded the ‘best team in the world’ soon after his penalty sealed a 1-0 win over Tottenham in their Champions League last-16 first-leg.

“Liverpool are the best team in the world at the moment,” he said.
“And when you’re linked with that team it makes me very proud.
“It’s a pleasure but I know Liverpool play a lot of good players.
“I have to improve myself and to learn much more things to get on this level to play there.”
