Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has heaped praise on Borrusia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, saying he is 'one of the best young players at the moment in world football'.


Sancho has been linked with a number of clubs across Europe including Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea, with a few tabloids reporting that the 19-year-old will return to the Premier League this summer.


Sancho, who sealed a move from Manchester City to Dortmund back in 2017, has scored 15 goals and registered 15 assists in the Bundesliga and Champions League this season.


"Sancho is one of the best young players at the moment in world football, especially when you look at his actual stats for Borussia Dortmund," he told Sky Sports.


"He's an English player who I think will be desperate to come back, so I think he'll be the hottest thing everyone in the Premier League will be looking to bring in.


"Will he be a hit? I think so. It's a no-brainer, look at how well he has played in a top league with a top club under pressure. He's playing week in, week out, his numbers are fantastic and his age is just perfect.


"I think he'll have his pick of top clubs in the Premier League, and though the fee may look eye-watering, I think it'll be one of them that over time will look cheap. You're going to get a good player for 10 years there if you keep him at your club.


"If you think about the development of Raheem Sterling at Manchester City, it feels like something similar could happen. It feels like he could be the next Raheem Sterling in terms of goals and assists numbers."
