Liverpool to launch £11m bid for German wonderkid

Liverpool are readying a £11.1m bid for impressive young Schalke star Leroy Sane according to Bild via the Daily Express.

The Anfield side are not the only Premier League side tracking the young German midfielder, Tottenham are also said to be keen, and the good run of recent form put in by the teenager has not gone unnoticed.

19-year-old Sane has scored in each of his last three Bundesliga fixtures and is considered one of the hottest prospects in German football and could prove a tough player for Schalke to keep hold of.

Sane is said to have turned down an £8.5m move to White Hart Lane over the summer and has subsequently signed a new contract with his Bundesliga employers and has done well to fill the void left by Julian Draxler following his move to Wolfsburg.

Brendan Rodgers is well known for his willingness to trust to youth and this may well prove something of a motivation should Sane consider a move to Anfield, as could the presence of fellow countrymen Emre Can, who’s progress at Liverpool has led to a first senior national team cap in August.
