Liverpool Football Club is reportedly ready to shatter its transfer record with a €90 million deal, marking a significant move for the Premier League giants. The current record signing for the Reds remains club captain Virgil van Dijk, who joined Liverpool in January 2018 from Southampton for a fee of around £75 million. However, Liverpool seems poised to set a new benchmark for their signings with this potential deal.

Rumors have been swirling regarding Liverpool’s willingness to sanction a record signing twice this year. The first instance involved interest in Jude Bellingham, with the transfer fee potentially reaching nine figures.

The second scenario was a reported £111 million deal with Brighton for Moises Caicedo. While these deals did not come to fruition, Liverpool seems determined to make a significant signing.

German outlet BILD has now reported that Bayern Munich is open to selling Leroy Sane for £80 million if Liverpool makes a bid for the lightning-fast superstar. Sane has made a strong start to the season in the Bundesliga, making him an appealing prospect for Liverpool, especially considering the possibility of losing Mohamed Salah in the future.

Leroy Sane is considered a like-for-like replacement for Salah, and given the interest from Saudi Arabia’s Pro League in acquiring Salah for a substantial fee, Liverpool may find Sane’s transfer fee an attractive proposition. This potential move could represent a strategic decision as the club plans for the future.

Furthermore, Viktor Tsygankov of Girona is said to be on Bayern Munich’s radar as a replacement option. Tsygankov has enjoyed an impressive start to the season in La Liga, and his abilities have caught the eye of Bayern Munich, according to reports.

Leroy Sane’s future is hanging in the balance, and he is reportedly keen for Bayern Munich to clarify their intentions during this season. This clarification could come in the form of a new contract or a potential sale. Get the latest updates from the Premier League only on Nextbet Sports

Notably, Sane had previously acknowledged his discussions with Liverpool and expressed admiration for Jurgen Klopp’s managerial work at Anfield. He commented, “Yes, I was also talking with them. Jürgen was calling me too, talking to me. He’s a good guy, nice guy – honest. He [has] worked well with Liverpool.”
