With the possibility of Mohamed Salah leaving Liverpool at the end of the season, Jürgen Klopp and the transfer team are likely looking forward to replacements that they can bring in to fill the Egyptian’s giant boots.
The Reds are having an excellent season. They currently hold a tenuous three point lead in the Premier League title race, have advanced to the League Cup semi-final, and Europa League knockout stage. New players like Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo, Alexis Mac Allister, and Ryan Gravenberch have all bedded in well to assist the team and replace the many players who left last summer. They will need to make similarly impressive moves next summer if Salah does leave so that they don’t struggle too much in his absence.
One player who might fit the bill is Leroy Sane. The Bayern Munich star currently has only 18 months left on his contract. While he was expected to sign an extension, the rumour is that he’s delaying in order to consider his options.
Sane has enjoyed an excellent first half of the season for the German giants, racking up nine goals and nine assists so far. If he does leave the club, it would be in the summer so that he could continue helping Bayern in the Champions League this season.
The 27-year-old has an eye on another title as well as this summer’s Euros, but after that, he may be ready for a new challenge.
