Target set to join Milan would be perfect low-cost addition to Liverpool midfield – Reds could poach £10m deal

Liverpool target Renato Sanches has reportedly agreed to sign for AC Milan in a low-cost deal worth £10m.

The Lille midfielder has impressed since moving to France and has been on Liverpool’s radar as a potential signing.

Sanches, 24, has made 91 appearances since signing for Lille from Bayern Munich in 2019.

Possessing unique qualities in midfield some Liverpool fans are questioning why the club hasn’t moved for him to bolster their midfield.

Huge Potential

Best known for bursting onto the scene at Euro 2016, he became the youngest Portuguese to play in an international tournament as well as the youngest player to win a UEFA Euro final.

He took away the coveted young player of the tournament award and was later awarded the Golden Boy award in a historic year for the midfielder.

Reportedly agreeing a fee with AC Milan, Sanches could sign for as little as £10m with some Liverpool fans on social media surprised at the club’s refusal to make an offer.

His makeup is similar to Naby Keita but offers a bigger, slightly more physical threat and if he could rediscover his form he could be the perfect addition to Liverpool’s midfield.

Career Decline

However, his career took a drastic U-Turn in the following seasons after the Euros.

Despite signing for Munich off the back of the Euros success for €35 million, his vast promise began to deteriorate over the course of three years in Germany.

There was even an ill-fated loan move to Swansea in 2017/18 at the height of his decline.

Sadly the best highlight from his time at the Welsh club was mistaking a billboard for a player and comically passing the ball out of play.

Re-discovering His Form

At Lille, Sanches managed to rediscover some of his previous form as he helped the club win their first Ligue 1 title in 10 years.

Despite injuries rearing their ugly head at times, it’s clear he’s found himself on a more positive path and is still only 24 years old.

At £10m, Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp could help to unlock his vast potential that we’ve seen plenty of glimpses of over the years.

However, the player still poses a risk of not performing plus a long list of injuries which is why none of the elite clubs in Europe have moved for the Portuguese international.
