Liverpool could well make a move for midfielder, Renato Sanches, with Fabrizio Romano claiming a summer move may be on the cards.
Sanches has been linked with a move to Anfield already. Reports in December from France claimed the Reds were keeping an eye on the Portuguese star, who has previously played in the Premier League with Swansea City.
And speaking on his Here We Go Podcast this afternoon, respected journalist Romano claims a deal for Sanches is very much something under consideration.
“Pay attention to Renato Sanches. Next summer he will be on the market and Liverpool are looking at him. There is nothing advanced yet but they are looking at him as an opportunity. He’ll be a main target for top clubs and also for Liverpool,” Romano said.
Sanches struggled with Swansea but has found some form in France this season with Lille, albeit an injury has kept him out of proceedings over the last month or so.
Liverpool could move for a new midfielder if Gini Wijnaldum leaves. The Dutchman has, as yet, failed to put pen to paper on new terms with the Reds.
TBR View: Sanches has quality but needs to prove more to suit Liverpool
The next few months could be big for Sanches really. He’ll need to get back playing and playing well if he is to fully convince Liverpool to make their move for him.
His time with Swansea was a poor one, but he was a young man in fairness and a lot has changed since then. Still only 23, Renato has a lot of scope to fulfil the talent which saw Bayern splash out £27.5m on him when he was a teenager.
Whether he can improve Liverpool, though, remains to be seen and is definitely up for debate.
