Liverpool fans have rushed into the Transfer Tavern today and quickly ordered a round in to supplement them as they discuss what could be a major addition to their side.
Sport Witness quote the print version of Bild, stating that Liverpool have opened negotiations with Schalke for Leroy Sane after the German international informed his Bundesliga employers that he wants to leave the club.
The highly-rated 20-year-old is coveted by some of the top-sides in Europe, including Manchester City and Barcelona, but Liverpool have moved quickly to open negotiations with the German side.
Liverpool could also be handed a major boost as despite the fact Schalke value the player at around £41.1m, it’s reported that he actually has a release clause of just £27.7m in his contract.
Sane’s exceptional attributes could see him become a star at Anfield and he’d be an excellent replacement for Raheem Sterling, who departed in the summer, with our punters claiming the German is already superior in many ways.
Our landlord doesn’t agree with that claim just yet but believes Liverpool would be securing a major coup with this deal.
Liverpool fans, how big a signing would this be!? Let us know in the comments below!
