Liverpool are looking to sign 27-year old Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane. Even pep was once a huge admirer of the target of Liverpool. Now, it is reported that Liverpool have a genuine interest in Leroy Sane. With the January window approaching, the Reds are already linked with a number of players. German journalist Christian Falk also said that the interest from Merseyside is very concrete regarding the German winger. Writing for The Daily Briefing, Falk says,
“Liverpool’s interest in Leroy Sane is concrete. You can compare him to the man he might end up replacing at Anfield in Mo Salah; they both have speed and Sane is certainly younger.
Bayern Munich are aware of the interest and after the international break they will meet the agents, LIAN Sports Group, to talk about an extension. They really want to keep him and Sane said that Bayern is the first club he will be talking to. His family has arrived in Munich after their new house was built and the player is feeling happy.
You never know what will happen with such talks. When Sane came to Munich during COVID-19, he was okay with earning €20m a year, but now they will talk about money. It’s always good to have other suitors at the table like Liverpool, but it’s no secret that Barcelona is also quite interested. The big question is whether the Catalan giants have the money! You also have to keep an eye on fellow La Liga outfit Real Madrid who are also interested in him.”
Liverpool consider sane as a replacement for Mo Salah
Liverpool will have many reasons to go for the 27-year old. Besides being in tremendous form this season, Sane is also one of the best left-footed wingers around the globe. Moreover, his former manager Pep Guardiola also said that he is losing a ‘special’ talent when he left for Bayern back in 2020. The Spanish manager is also reported to having speculations about the position of Sane at the moment. He may really be looking to get him back at the Etihad Stadium. However, Liverpool will surely try to blow out Man City from the race as they also see him as a potential heir to Mo Salah.
The Egyptian maestro was linked with a big money move to Saudi last summer but nothing landed. Though, it is expected that he might again be a target for the Middle east in 2024. Keeping this in mind, Klopp will be preparing for a quick replacement to his icon.
