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.
