Emile Heskey says Liverpool should look to sign Jadon Sancho given the opportunity this summer.
Asked to run the rule over three of the hottest talents in Europe, former Liverpool forward Heskey revealed he would be tempted to go for Sancho ahead of Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland and Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe.
All three players are among the most coveted young attackers in the game and all have been linked with joining up with Jutrgen Klopp at Anfield.
If money was no option it really would be a difficult choice to select on of the trip, but Heskey, 42, who scored 60 goals in a five-year spell with the Reds, thinks 20-year-old Sancho would be the man to go after.
“I’d choose Sancho for Liverpool, out of the three,” he told GentingBet. “Mbappe is a phenomenal player who is another player who keeps on rising and is only going to get better and better.
“He’s focused more to keep the consistency going, at that age it’s just phenomenal. It’s difficult, because for Liverpool you’d choose a player who was more on the wing than central.
“But again, Haaland’s goals are a key factor. I’m going to be patriotic and say that Sancho would be great, being an England player and an entertaining player as well.
“Haaland is up there with Mbappe and Sancho and when it comes to potential and you look at goals, he’s up there with the best of them.
“The sky is the limit, so it’s up to him to keep that momentum going, because it’s not easy to keep it going.”
