Liverpool keen to lure incoming summer signing’s team-mate to Anfield

Liverpool are keeping a close eye on Schalke’s impressive winger Leroy Sane ahead of a potential summer move for his signature, according to reports from Football Insider.

The Merseysiders have already made an end of season move for the young German’s team-mate, Joel Matip, official, with the Cameroonian defender due to relocate to Merseyside when his contract at the Veltins Arena expires in a few months’ time.

And it seems that their interest in proceedings in Gelsenkirchen will not die down between now and the summer, with Sane reportedly being monitored.

The 20-year-old Germany international is currently thought of as one of the hottest young talents in the Bundesliga, and is already considered to be a key player in the Schalke team despite his age.

It’s understood that Liverpool have been scouting the £30m-rated winger for much of the season.

Sane’s age and potential for development seem to fit in with the Reds’ transfer ethos.
