Kevin Campbell has claimed that the addition of Renato Sanches to Liverpool could turn the club back into “title challengers”.
The Reds have been strongly linked with the Portuguese star throughout the summer window following the departure of reliable midfielder Gini Wijnaldum on a free.
“The young man deserves a huge credit for the way he has jumped back. It feels like he’s been around for a decade, but he’s only 23. It’s unbelievable, ” told the former Arsenal striker Football Insider.
“He has had to reinvent himself a bit, but he is a great player. He is strong, powerful and is a great ball carrier.
“I think would add a different dynamic to Liverpool midfield. Someone who can drive past people. Players jump off him when he is in midfield.
“Wijnaldum was a little different. He was good on the ball, wanted to move it quickly and come up with an occasional goal.
“A powerhouse like Sanches could make Liverpool title challengers again.”
Having already secured the signing of Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig, which strengthens the backline after a year of injury problems at the center of the defense, Jurgen Klopp’s men are thought to be considering moving to a new forward and midfielder in the window.
With Fabrizio Romano already reporting EyeToEye podcast that the Little Star could be snapped up to a figure between 30-35 million. €, the former Bayern Munich star seems to be somewhat affordable.
Both Liverpool and Arsenal have been linked, but if it came down to it, one could hope that our superior status in world football might be enough to tempt Sanchez to an Anfield switch.
