Jadon Sancho is convinced he will be playing in the Premier League next season, acting as a boost to Liverpool.
It looks increasingly likely that Sancho will leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer, in order to enjoy a fresh challenge.
The Mirror claim that the forward believes he will be a Premier League player in 2020/21, sealing a move to one of those linked with him.

This is an undeniable positive for Liverpool, ahead of what could be a fierce battle for Sancho’s signature. He has 17 goals and assists apiece to his name this season, outlining his pedigree.
With potential doubts surrounding the Reds’ move for Timo Werner, due to the current virus affecting the world, it could be that the club turn their attention to Sancho.
I would be surprised if both ended up moving to Anfield, with Sancho’s price tag appearing to be the biggest stumbling block behind a possible Merseyside move.
I could see a scenario where United are the only club willing to spend a rumoured €140 million on the England international, getting their man in the process.
That is a huge amount of money – a figure that would come close to doubling Liverpool’s transfer record set by Virgil van Dijk – and it could be that Jurgen Klopp and Michael Edwards can’t justify it.
I still see Werner as the most likely summer arrival, due to him being cheaper, but this update is certainly no bad thing.
