Transfer insider Dean Jones has been speaking on the latest edition of The Done Deal Show from The Football Terrace to discuss all things transfer-related.
Is Renato Sanches a good replacement for Wijnaldum?
In the 2020/21 campaign, as Lille lifted the Ligue 1 title, Sanches made 23 appearances in the French top flight, in which he was able to get his name on the scoresheet once and provide three assists (via Transfermarkt).
Discussing the future of the 23-year-old, Jones had the following to say on a potential summer switch to Liverpool.
“I always say, look at where the stories are coming from, who’s leaking these – and the kind of places I’ve seen it reported give it, I think, some credibility.
“And I also believe that because [Lille] is a selling club right now, it makes the deal doable. And I think it’s probably going to be within a price range that Liverpool would be able to do.
“So it’s definitely one to keep an eye on, this.”
TIF Thoughts on a potential move for Sanches…
With Georginio Wijnaldum having left already this summer to Paris Saint-Germain, could Sanches be the ideal long-term replacement for the Dutchman?
