Journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Liverpool are interested in signing Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane.
The reporter said that there's talk of the 26-year-old being targeted by the Reds and Manchester United.
However, Romano further added that supporters of either club should not get too excited about being linked with Sane just yet.
“I’m aware that there’s growing talk of Leroy Sane being targeted by the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United, but I wouldn’t get too excited about it just yet," he told Caught Offside, as quoted by AW's Twitter account.
“Bayern have no intention of selling Leroy Sane. Robert Lewandowski has just left and more solutions will be needed throughout the season. It will be a tough deal for any club, and there are no offers on the Bayern table yet.”
Anfield Watch Verdict
We would be surprised if Liverpool made a move for Sane this summer. Yes, the winger is a top player.
Sane has scored 25 goals and registered 28 assists in 91 appearances for Bayern Munich.
The 26-year-old averaged a WhoScored player rating of 7.17 across 32 Bundesliga appearances last season.
Therefore, we would be surprised if the Reds signed another forward in the near future.
So, we would prefer to see the club invest in their midfield. Only time will tell if Liverpool are to make a move for Sane.
