Liverpool could reportedly leap ahead of Manchester United in the hunt for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.
Sancho was heavily linked with a move to United all summer though the Red Devils refused to pay the £108m asking price for the England star.
Now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side could face competition when the window reopens as clubs adjust to transfer life amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Earlier reports suggested Liverpool would not make a move for Sancho due to the virus with it previously unknown what the impact would be on funds.
Though the Independent claim the Reds could move ahead of United with Sancho’s camp believed to be willing to re-assess options.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has spoken to Sancho in the past and reportedly impressed the Dortmund star.

He recently said: “United have got a clear run at Sancho now – but that will change if he’s still at Dortmund next year. I’d be very surprised if Liverpool didn’t try to sign him next summer.
