Don't get me wrong I am not suggesting he is a bad player by any means, but looking at the kind of money being bandied around for him I would want to be 100% sure he is the real deal and I am not quite there yet. When we were pursuing him in 2017 we were probably looking at £7m-£10m where as we now looking at 15x that amount.The thing that sells me with Sancho is we were aggressively trying to sign him before he moved to Dortmund, this is whilst Klopp was here so we clearly saw something then, and since then he has proved it at every level. Yes he's regressed this season, yes he's got a bit of an attitude problem but I do think he's the best English (attacking) talent since Sterling and can be as good. He is just 19 - Thats insane if you think he's nearly got 2 full senior seasons under his belt - He is averaging 1 G/A per 90mins over that time as well (0.95 last season, 1.19 this season), even if that drops of slightly its impressive.
