Jadon Sancho can be the proper signing for Liverpool this summer season, says Emile Heskey.
But the previous Reds striker believes Sancho would not essentially be a first-choice if he made the swap to Anfield from Borussia Dortmund within the switch window.

The England worldwide’s kind in Germany has led to a lot hypothesis round his future with Liverpool simply one of many groups linked alongside Manchester United and Chelsea.

“When you take a look at the Liverpool frontline, you’ve received Mane and Salah because the goal-getters and that’s precisely what they do properly.

Like Sancho, Heskey feels Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz is one other who can present recent impetus to the Liverpool squad.
Havertz has been linked in reference to the Reds for a lot of the season and Heskey thinks he may very well be a top-class possibility for a squad that might be aiming to problem on all fronts as soon as extra subsequent season.

“When a participant is aware of they’ve somebody behind them able to take their place, it retains everybody on their toes.”
Perhaps the participant most frequently linked with Liverpool, although, is RB Leipzig frontman Timo Werner. The Germany worldwide striker has netted 21 instances within the Bundesliga this season and has been on the Reds’ radar for a while.
And Heskey reckons he’s a footballer that Klopp would like to work with at Liverpool sooner or later.
