Premier League transfer news: Jadon Sancho, Gareth Bale, Mesut Ozil, Ruben Neves

Premier League transfer news and rumours 

Reds back in for Sancho?

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he wanted to sign Jadon Sancho but Manchester City were unwilling to sell the winger to a Premier League rival.

The Daily Mail reports that Liverpool were interested in the youngster before he left City for Klopp’s former side Borussia Dortmund in 2017.

Klopp said: “We are not blind – we saw him, we liked him and then we think ‘can we get him?’ No. Because English clubs don’t sell to other English clubs.”

Now the Daily Mirror says that Klopp could be ready to make another move for the 18-year-old England international who has shone in the Bundesliga for Dortmund this season. 

Wenger: Ozil in comfort zone

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that Mesut Ozil’s £350,000-a-week long-term contract has put him in the “comfort zone” and is a key reason why the German has struggled to make an impact under Unai Emery. Wenger said: “Most of the time now we think when we sign a player for five years we have a good player for five years. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that they practice, they play their best. Because they might be in their comfort zone.” (Daily Mail
