Liverpool reportedly want £21m star compared to Ronaldinho, fans should be buzzing - TBR View
Liverpool are eyeing Portugal international Renato Sanches, according to reports.
French outlet Onze Mondial claimed earlier in July that both Liverpool and Arsenal want the Lille midfielder.
And Fabrizio Romano recently told Anfield Watch that Sanches has “always been on the list for Liverpool”.
And Reds fans should be excited about reported interest in the 23-year-old, who has been sensational in recent months.
Renato Sanches: Back to his best
Sanches burst onto the scene in 2015-16 with Benfica, helping them to a domestic double.
He then made the Portugal squad for Euro 2016 and helped his nation win the tournament.
Sanches moved to Bayern Munich that summer, but his time at the Allianz Arena sadly wasn’t the most fruitful.
While on their books, he also spent the 2017-18 season on loan at Swansea, then in the Premier League.
However, Sanches was far from his best that year and failed to make much of an impact for the Swans.
After three years on Bayern’s books, he became Lille’s record signing, and his career took off once again.
Indeed, Sanches helped Christophe Galtier’s side win their first Ligue 1 title in 10 years last season.
The £21million-rated ace (90Min) featured at Euro 2020, playing in all four games for Portugal as they reached the last 16.
Comparisons with Wijnaldum and Ronaldinho
Sanches is a versatile player who’s comfortable in central, attacking, defensive, and wide roles in midfield.
His main attributes include physical strength, passing ability, and being composed in possession.
Over the years, fans have compared him to the likes of Clarence Seedorf, Edgar Davids, Georginio Wijnaldum and even Ronaldinho.
Renato Sanches reminds me of Gini Wijnaldum. Both use their upper body strength very well.— Trevenderson (@Trevski_LFC) August 27, 2017
The way Renato Sanches body feints whilst dribbling reminds me of Ronaldinho— Trafalgar Law (@damolastayup) June 30, 2016
Renato Sanches reminds me so much of Edgar Davids! The way he gets about the pitch is so similar!— Rhys Wertheim (@R_W_1_5) June 25, 2016
Renato Sanches is fun to watch but I doubt if he fits our system 😅— Vaibhav Shah (@Aviation_Freak) July 6, 2021
He reminds me of Ronaldinho. Great dribbler and can do wonderful things individually but not a great passer/team player 😅
Wants to take-on everyone on his own. 🙈 #LFC
