Liverpool have been linked with a shock move for Portuguese star Renato Sanches this summer with Jurgen Klopp looking to fill the Gini Wijnaldum hole in his squad.

Wijnaldum opted against a contract extension at Anfield last month with the Dutchman moving onto PSG on a free transfer.

Klopp has been tipped for a bid for Aston Villa star John McGinn as a possible replacement but Sanches is another option.

According to reports from the Liverpool Echo earlier today, Sanches has been targeted by Klopp as a more versatile call than McGinn.

Sanches has impressed for both club and country in the last 12 months as Lille clinched a dramatic Ligue 1 title last season.

However, with two years left on his contract in Northern France, the former Swansea City loanee could be available for around £25m.
