With the January transfer window here, rumours of a Liverpool swoop for Leroy Sane is fuelling expectations from fans who can’t wait to see the player at Anfield. Will the attacking midfielder join Liverpool or not?
The Metro claims that Liverpool are willing to part with £11m in exchange for the Schalke 04 player while the Guardian are claiming a bid of £11m has been accepted for the player.. Jurgen Klopp refused to rule out a move for the Schalke 04 duo of Sane and Matip. Speaking with German tabloid, Bild, Klopp said, “Are we interested in Sane and Matip? They are Schalke players, right? It is correct that we are looking at all options. I do not have any plans to only bring in players from the Bundesliga. There is nothing wilder than transfer rumours in England. You can insist 10 times that you will not sign a new goalkeeper, yet the papers will write the next day that you are interested in signing a goalkeeper, or perhaps even two”.
Despite Klopp’s assertion, the Metro still believes that a bid will be made for the player this winter even if a move does not materialize until summer. The German sensation is also on the wishlist of other top clubs in Europe, with Premier league sides Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham keen on a move. However, the highly-rated midfielder’s agent has doused any hope of his client leaving the German side this winter.
Low says of Sane, “Leroy’s performances this year have been very impressive. I like the way he goes about his business. He’s very clever at moving into space. He’s incredibly quick, has the vision to create and scores a lot of goals himself. I see huge potential in him”.
Sane has an 81 percent pass accuracy thus far in the Bundesliga. He has also racked up 4 goals and 4 assists in the Bundesliga this season.
