Arsenal and Liverpool interested in Renato Sanches

Premier League clubs Arsenal and Liverpool are both interested in Lille midfielder Renato Sanches this summer.

The 23-year-old had a standout 2020-21 campaign, pipping Paris Saint-Germain to the Ligue 1 title while playing for Lille, and putting in strong performances for Portugal during the European Championships.

French newspaper L’equipe now report that following Boubakary Soumaré’s move to  Leicester, at least two other midfielders could also leave Lille.

One of them is Renato Sanches, whose displays in the EURO’s  have attracted the interest of several clubs, including Arsenal and Liverpool, who are very interested in his profile.

It follows on from some comments between Sanches and Arsenal defender Gabriel Magalhães on Instagram where the Brazilian asked his friend to ‘come to Arsenal’, to which Sanches replied ‘I’m waiting for your invitation.’
