On August 1st, we carried a report from L’Equipe, who explained Arsenal, Liverpool and Barcelona are interested in signing Renato Sanches in the summer window.

Earlier this week, journalist Mohamed Toubache-Ter explained the midfielder ‘could leave’ for the Merseyside club and Lille want ‘at least €40-42m’ in transfer fee.

Wednesday’s edition of Mundo Deportivo has a report on the 23-year-old, focusing on the Reds and the La Liga side.

Ronald Koeman wants a strong midfielder and in order to satisfy the manager’s demands, the Catalan club are ‘tracking the market’ for new players. One of the names sounded out by the Spanish giants is that of Sanches.

Mundo relay claims made in France that Barcelona will find it difficult to sign the Portugal international due to their ‘delicate economic situation’. The newspaper then mentions Jürgen Klopp’s side.

It’s claimed that due to Barca’s current financial conditions, Liverpool would be the ‘most likely destination’ for the former Bayern Munich man.

Lille are expecting to receive €40m for the player, but the Anfield club ‘expect to reduce’ the fee since Sanches’ contract will run down in 2023.
