Liverpool have concerns regarding a potential transfer deal for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

Liverpool believe Jadon Sancho is overvalued by Borussia Dortmund and have concerns about his off-field behaviour while at Signal Iduna Park.

The Reds are in for a relatively quiet summer transfer window with the coronavirus pandemic hitting clubs around the world hard and Jurgen Klopp already has a strong squad at his disposal.

Liverpool this month passed up the opportunity to sign long-term target Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, with the deal eventually struck by Chelsea not making financial sense for Michael Edwards and co.

Werner will cost Chelsea just under half of the £100m asking price Dortmund have slapped on Sancho following a staggering season in the Bundesliga.

And the Daily Mail report Liverpool have reservations about how much they would have to stump up to bring Sancho back to England.

A £100m fee would smash the club-record £75m Liverpool paid out for defender Virgil van Dijk back in January 2018.

And it would deplete the funds available to Klopp this summer, which would be an issue should the need arise for more reinforcements to be brought in.

Liverpool have not just been put off a move for Sancho by his price tag, however, with his disciplinary record something of a concern too.

The 20-year-old hit the headlines earlier this month when he was fined £8,000 for breaking lockdown rules in Germany to get his hair cut.

Last October, Sancho was fined and dropped by Dortmund for returning late from England duty, while he was then benched against Barcelona for falling asleep and missing a team meeting.

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has admitted the former Manchester City youngster is not the easiest player to manage.
