Liverpool set to make a move for Bayern Munich’s Renato Sanches

Liverpool are reportedly interested in making a move for Bayern Munich youngster Renato Sanches.

The Reds have expressed an interest in signing the promising Portuguese midfielder Sanches recently from the Bavarian giants after failing to secure the signature of long time target Naby Keita from RB Leipzig earlier this summer.

The 20-year-old moved to the German giants for around £30 million last summer from Benfica but featured in only 17 games in all competitions throughout the course of the campaign for the German giants after failing to impress manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Sanches had impressed for Benfica as well as for the Portugal national team during the 2016 European championships prior to his move to Bayern and such exploits had seen his stock rise exponentially, with a host of top clubs such as Manchester United and Real Madrid eyeing his services.

Bayern Munich were quick to snap up Sanches ahead of United and Madrid for big money but the move hasn’t worked well for the powerful midfielder and he now looks set for an exit from the Allainz Arena this summer.

The interest from the Merseyside club comes at the right time for Sanches as he seems to have fallen further down the pecking order at Bayern as the German champions signed Corentin Tolisso and Sebastian Rudy earlier in the window.

As a result, Sanches will now probably hope that he will be able to complete any sort of move to Anfield in order to get regular first team football and be in contention for a place in the World Cup squad for Portugal next year.

Sanches possesses both physical strength and technical prowess in his repertoire, which will make him a competitive force in the Premier League should he complete the move to Liverpool and the youngster will certainly strengthen the Reds’ side with his presence.

The Reds supporters are understandably excited with this rumor and they will be hopeful that their side can complete the signing of arguably one of the best young talents in Europe amid a summer of much disappointment in the transfer market.
