Liverpool will be hoping to keep alive their slim hopes of finishing in the top four of the Premier League when they welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Anfield on Sunday. 

Last time out, The Reds came from behind to beat struggling West Ham United 2-1 at The London Stadium, with Cody Gakpo and Joel Matip on the scoresheet.

At present, Jurgen Klopp’s side sit seventh in the table, seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester United.

This summer looks likely to be one of significant change at Anfield, with a number of players set to leave the club and several targets on Klopp’s shortlist.

Now, it appears that the club could also be on the hunt for a Champions League midfielder.

As per Football Insider, The Reds are plotting a move for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Renato Sanches.

Liverpool have reportedly been monitoring the 25-year-old with a view to signing him when the transfer window opens this summer, and PSG are said to be willing to let him go.

Sanches could be in line for a sensational return to the Premier League

The midfielder was very highly rated as a teenager, but his career has dwindled somewhat in recent seasons.

Sanches left boyhood club Benfica in 2016 to join German champions Bayern Munich, having impressed for the Lisbon side after breaking into the first team as a teenager.

Since then, he has spent time with Swansea City, Lille, and now PSG, but he has so far failed to live up to the hype that surrounded him as a teenager.

Liverpool are desperate to rebuild their midfield this summer after a sub-par campaign, though, and could therefore look to the Portuguese to bolster their squad.

The report claims that manager Klopp is a huge admirer of the midfielder, and had urged those in charge of Liverpool to sign Sanches before he made the move to the French capital last summer.

This term, the player has made 22 appearances across all competitions, but it is claimed that he is one of a number of players that could be sold this summer.
