Many Liverpool fans reacted in delight after it was reported that their club have an interest in signing Lille star Renato Sanches.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reported this on his Here We Go podcast, claiming that a summer move for the 23-year-old could be on the cards. The Anfield Edition account then tweeted about this update, and their post garnered interest from some Liverpool fans.
The Kop faithful may remember Sanches from his short loan stint at Swansea City during the 2017/18 campaign – where he only made 15 appearances before making a rather swift return to Bayern Munich.
The Portuguese midfielder has played a big part in Lille’s success this season, scoring once from seven starts in Ligue 1, averaging 5.4 long balls game and having a pass success rate of 89.6% (Whoscored).
Should Klopp try and sign Renato Sanches?
With this in mind, these supporters were excited at the prospect of Sanches coming to Anfield. With the future of Georginio Wijnaldum still up in the air – these fans would welcome the Portuguese star’s arrival if a deal can be done.
Fans excited by possible Sanches transfer
“He definitely possesses the skillset needed to thrive in midfield. How people are blatantly against this signing is beyond me. I imagine they said the same about Robertson, Salah and co.”
“Gini replacement I’m assuming. Haven’t watched him at Lille but if we want him, it’s because Klopp believes he can make it work for him.”
“Yessss, but this also means Gini might go”
“Wouldn’t mind this whatsoever, wouldn’t surprise me either”
