Revealed: 60% of Liverpool fans would back swoop for Stoke’s Sobhi

With Virgil van Dijk’s arrival and Philippe Coutinho’s potential departure dominating the headlines, some of the smaller transfer stories involving Liverpool this month have inevitably slipped under the radar – such as Jurgen Klopp’s apparent interest in Stoke City winger Ramadan Sobhi.

According to Sky Sports’ Peter O’Rourke, the Liverpool gaffer has asked for a character reference from Egypt team-mate Mohamed Salah, suggesting the Potters prospect has taken his fancy. So we asked Reds supporters earlier this week whether they’d back a transfer swoop for the 19-cap attacker and according to our poll, 60% would be in favour of a deal.

The 6 foot winger is starting to make his mark in the Premier League after scoring twice in December, highlighting the progress the 20-year-old has made since arriving from Al-Ahly in summer 2016.

Transfermarkt currently value him at just £5.4million and highly-rated as a young attacker with big potential, Liverpool would be wise to move before another upturn in form sees that sum drastically increases.
