Liverpool told to sell Mo Salah to seal Jadon Sancho transfer… as Egyptian 'can't even do the basics'

JURGEN KLOPP should flog Mo Salah to land Jadon Sancho - because the Egyptian can't even do the "basics".

That is according to former Liverpool midfielder Don Hutchinson.

Klopp is keen to land Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho this summer along with Leipzig's Timo Werner in a double Bundesliga raid.

That could cost as much as £170m... and if it comes to selling one of the Reds' current top three, Hutchinson is in no doubt who is should be.

He told ESPN: ''I watch Mo Salah every single week, and his numbers are astonishing.

''You watch Salah and the guy does genius things, but he does the most basic so bad it's untrue.

''He can't even pass a ball five yards, he seems to keep playing this ball where he tries to nutmeg everyone from whatever side he's on.

"If he's coming off the right flank onto his left, tries to play it to a striker through a body of players that's never, ever on.

''And you watch him and go, 'Surely this has been coached, surely Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff have tried to coach Mohamed Salah'. But he still does the basic things really, really bad.

''Yet his numbers are frightening  and he scores a ridiculous amount of goals in the Premier League and the Champions League.

''I think if you're going to sell anyone and you had to sell one - don't get me wrong, I wouldn't sell any if I was Jurgen Klopp - but if one was to go and you offered Mo Salah for someone like Jadon Sancho, I maybe would take that swap.''
