Fabrizio Romano provides updates on potential Sanches and Haaland deals

In just a few days time, Liverpool will be finalising plans as to whether or not they will engage in any transfer activity throughout the upcoming January transfer window.

The big hope for supporters is that a player or two may come in to aid the strain that has existed this season as a result of injury to key Liverpool personnel.

It is important if Liverpool indeed do uphold an interest in a player that any potential deal is done well before deadline day.

Liverpool have two potentially important deals that the club could focus on and attempt to progress in the coming weeks.

Fabrizio Romano has given an update on both of them.

Renato Sanches

Football website TuttoMercattoWeb have claimed that Liverpool have an ‘agreement in place’ with French side Lille to sign midfielder Renato Sanches for a fee of £18 million.

The Euro 2016-winning midfielder has been identified as a potential long-term replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum.

Sanches also shares the same agent as Fabinho and Diogo Jota which provides validity as to why Liverpool may look to sanction a move.

However, Romano confirms that no agreement is currently in place between either Liverpool or Lille as the Reds are still undecided how to resolve Wijnaldum’s unresolved contractual situation.

Romano’s update showcases why a summer move could be more likely once Liverpool have taken the appropriate time to draw up a long-term succession plan should Wijnaldum leave.

Erling Haaland

A move for Erling Haaland is the one move Liverpool fans would love to see happen in the not too distant future.

While a January move was never really on the cards as Romano backs up, Liverpool remain confident that a deal could be struck in the future.

Club insiders have revealed that Jurgen Klopp’s next major signing could be Borussia Dortmund sensation Erling Haaland, EuroSport reports.

Haaland, 20, is widely regarded as one of the most exciting talents of his generation, and is a player Klopp admires greatly as speculation surrounding a potential Liverpool transfer continues to intensify.

In some ways, this transfer makes a lot of sense for both Haaland and Liverpool. The Reds have a great relationship with his former club, RB Salzburg, as well as his current employer Borussia Dortmund, whom of course, Klopp used to manage. 

Whatever else happens in regards to these two deals, even if there is nothing more, there are a lot of reasons as to why a move for either player would make sense.

We’ve even written a couple of pieces as to why Sanches and Haaland have been matched up to fit the club’s self-sustaining transfer criteria.
