Liverpool have been linked with dozens of players in recent weeks and months. The Reds have predominantly found themselves linked with defenders due to the ongoing crisis at the back. However, the midfield could also do with an injection. Twitter has reacted after Liverpool were linked with Renato Sanches.
Renato Sanches Golden Boy
23-year-old Renato Sanches was once one of the brightest prospects around.
The Portuguese star has been around the block due to his early rise.
In 2016 he was named European Golden Boy due to his meteoric rise at Benfica. Bayern Munich snapped him up the same year.
Sanches struggled with the Bundesliga and was loaned out to Swansea City before eventually joining Lille in the French Ligue 1.

He’s impressed in France, last season earning himself a WhoScored rating of 7.13 before the league was halted due to the pandemic.
Liverpool linked with Renato Sanches
This is a story which just won’t go away.
Last month we saw some outlets claim that the Reds had agreed a fee with Lille for their 23-year-old playmaker.
This week Liverpool have been linked with a summer move for Renato Sanches.
Fabrizio Romano made the claim on the Here We Go Podcast.
The journalist believes the Reds are planning for the future instead of swooping for him in January, saying:
“Pay attention to Renato Sanches. Next summer he will be on the market and Liverpool are looking at him.
“There is nothing advanced yet but they are looking at him as an opportunity. He’ll be a main target for top clubs and also for Liverpool.”
