Reports from German outlet SportBild, cited by TalkSport, claim that the Reds are plotting a January move for Schalke’s 19-year-old sensation Leroy Sane; after being impressed by the teenager’s performances in the Bundesliga.
Scouse punters flicking peanuts into their pints remember that Liverpool reportedly had a £12m offer rejected by Schalke over the summer and hope that an offer in the New Year will be more tempting for the Bundesliga giants.
Sane’s stock has risen following his immense performances in recent matches, where the young midfielder as fired in three goals in as many games to fire Schalke third in the Bundesliga table- behind only unbeaten Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
Liverpool will have a hard task luring Sane to Anfield though, as the teen penned a long-term contract with Schalke in June.
