Liverpool see Sancho as Salah’s replacement

With the departure of Sancho from Manchester City, the Englishman began to progress noticeably. We can say that Borussia Dortmund had all the right conditions for this. The team plays attacking football, there are partners who support the front and effective actions come on their own. But this season, the Black-and-Yellows have clear problems. They finish championship on the rims and risk not getting into the Champions League. At the same time, Sancho scored six goals and nine assists in 23 matches.

With parallel course, Liverpool are experiencing similar problems. But if Jurgen Klopp laid down the defense from what was and gained Kabak, and Ibrahima Konate will also join in the summer, then there are difficulties in the attack. They are mostly associated with the implementation of Salah, Mane and Firmino. The three often fails, misses a lot of moments, which is reflected in the state of affairs in the championship. The Reds are four points away five rounds before the end of the Premier League.

Therefore, it became a logical decision for the Merseysiders to sell Salah and find a replacement for him. This should have been done a long time ago, because the winger with a victory in the Champions League and the Premier League could lose motivation, although before that he was not a great scorer in terms of realisation. But with the need to cover the rear more reliably at Liverpool, the number of attacks to create chances decreased and the value of goals increased significantly.

Sancho can give Liverpool pace. His disadvantage, I think, is his last hip injury, because of which he dropped out for a month and a half from the beginning of March. At the same time, Sancho has excellent dribbling, speed, kick and, importantly, English passport. With such a set, he will obviously cost Liverpool a pretty penny. Although the management of the club recently received 400 million pounds from investors, which even taking into account losses of 46 million last year will allow to conduct a transfer campaign.
