Liverpool: Fabrizio Romano provides Renato Sanches update -Liverpool Transfer Rumours

Rumoured Liverpool target Renato Sanches wants to leave Lille in the summer transfer window, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.

The Lowdown: Liverpool linked with Sanches move

Gini Wijnaldum’s Reds exit to Paris Saint-Germain has left a void in the middle of the park, and a replacement may be needed this summer.

Sanches has been linked with a summer move to Anfield, having enjoyed an impressive Euro 2020 campaign with Portugal  prior to their round of 16 exit.

The 23-year-old also made 23 Ligue 1 appearances for Lille last season, helping them clinch the league title.

The Latest: Romano provides key update

Romano has now given an update on the current situation, taking to his YouTube channel [via Empire of the Kop] to confirm that Sanches wants to move on this summer, with a fresh challenge appealing to the Portugal winger.

The journalist stated: “He wants to go, I also know Lille are prepared to sell.”

The Verdict: Perfect Wijnaldum replacement?

While there are slight concerns surrounding Sanches’ injury record, he looks a fantastic option to come in and replace Wijnaldum ahead of next season, having been hailed as ‘incredible’ by Kevin Campbell.

The 23-year-old averaged an impressive 91.6% pass completion rate at Euro 2020, showing that he shares the Dutchman’s ability to keep possession, and just like the former Liverpool midfielder, he is a powerful presence.

Sanches also averaged 1.3 tackles per game in the tournament, proving that he can thrive in his off-the-ball duties.
