It is alleged that Liverpool is not interested in signing the Portuguese midfielder Renato Sanches and that in January it is unlikely to conduct any business. Sanches, formerly of Bayern Munich and Swansea City, has resurrected his career at French side Lille after joining the club in August 2019, following disappointing experiences in Germany and Wales.
The Liverpool Echo reports that such statements are unfounded and that Sanches is not a player on Liverpool’s radar, despite some news outlets reporting that the Reds have reached an agreement with the 23-year-old.
Next month, the Premier League champions expect limited business and there are no existing plans to reinforce their roster with any new hires.
For most of this season, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp had to contend with defensive absentees and despite center-backs Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez remaining sidelined with long-term knee injuries, with Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams providing backup to Joel Matip and Fabinho, Klopp is happy with his defensive choices.
Only if circumstances were to change, such as further injuries or player departures, would Liverpool consider entering the transfer market?
