Rumour of the day - For the miserable tw@ts amongst you

Liverpool Football Club - The Rumour Mill

Rumours that we are one of the front runners for Jadon Sancho seem to be gathering pace. Whoever ends up getting him is going to have to pay a pretty hefty sum.

Well I wanted us to sign him but it seems like every day now that I read about his disciplinary issues and I'm not sure I want a player who isn't professional enough in our ranks, despite his talent.

Would take him in a flash - 19 year old kid who has been late a couple times and that’s it

Sancho looks a bit over-hyped to me but I must admit I've never seen him play for Dortmund, only England.
A player who has impressed me in recent weeks though is the lad at Newcastle (Saint Maxim or something like that). He'd be a handful in a better team that lad, his workrate off the ball could be a concern though.

Personally I am not sure about that Sancho lad. He is completely overhyped and its because he is English and playing well in another league. We would be better off looking for someone already proven in the premier league rather than pay superstar rates for someone who might struggle. Think he needs another few years where he is before he gets that type of move.

Sterling as a kid had MASSIVE disciplinary issues.  3 kids by 3 different women by the age of 20 to start with....

Firstly Sterling has two children. One with his current girlfriend and one from a previous relationship. Secondly, the number of children he has is not relevant to his dedication and professionalism towards football. When he wanted to leave us he kicked up a stink just like van Dijk did when he wanted to come to us. The mud thrown at him by the likes of the DM and the S*n sticks and unfortunately football fans continue to lap it up.

As for Sancho, there can't be many teenagers performing at his level in a top 5 leagues and in the CL for a big club like Dortmund. His profile is exactly the type we should be looking at. A teenager turning up late to training a few times isn't the end of the world. It's up to Klopp and the recruitment team to do their due diligence on him but I'd be pretty happy if we got him. If we don't then I'm pretty sure he'll end up at another big CL club.

But if we did get him, surely it would be either a change of system to a 4-2-3-1 to accommodate him and the front 3, or it means one of Salah or Mane are off. Can't see us buying a 100mil player who would be backup rotation for the front 3. And can't see him coming here unless he was confident he wouldn't be sitting on the bench for the big games

He is the real deal - not sure who you would suggest is “Prem proven” and better than him for now and the future. He is more than hype this lad - just watch what he did when he came on against Barce. He would a superb buy and would fit exactly what Klopp wants in a wide forward.
