Trent Alexander-Arnold has talked up the possibility of Jadon Sancho joining Liverpool from Borussia Dortmund.

The attacker has been heavily linked with Manchester United and Chelsea, with the Red Devils reportedly more and more confident they can lure Sancho to Old Trafford.

Liverpool have been credited with an interest in Sancho and full-back Alexander-Arnold sent a message to his England team-mate over a potential switch.

‘If he came to us, he’d make our team better,’ Alexander-Arnold told Michael Dapaah on Instagram live.

‘So I’d be more than happy for him to come. I played with him for England and he’s a special, special, special, special talent.’

Sancho is thought to be keen on a return to the Premier League after forcing his way out of Manchester City to join Dortmund in 2017.

The 20-year-old has flourished in Germany and could fetch over £100million.

Sancho is open to a move to United, but is determined not to give up Champions League football when he does eventually move club.

That could rule out United, while Liverpool won the competition in 2019 and have been regulars in the tournament under Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool have made a habit of backing Klopp in the transfer market when his top targets become available and Dortmund are ready to cash in on Sancho.

Any club’s efforts to land Sancho this summer could be disrupted by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the financial impact the health crisis is having on football clubs.

United chief Ed Woodward has already said the club will have to re-evaluate their transfer plans, casting doubt over their pursuit for Sancho.
