Barcelona eye move for Liverpool's DREAM Salah replacement
The Egyptian was chased by the Saudi Pro League during the summer transfer window and while Liverpool were able to retain the 31-year-old, there are suggestions that he could still leave Anfield within the next few years.
Salah has 12 goals and four assists in all competitions so far this season and remains Liverpool’s most dangerous attacker, meaning his departure would leave a gaping hole in Jurgen Klopp’s forward line.
As a result, they have targeted a move for Sane, but they are not the only ones keen on landing the Bayern star.
Manchester City have also been linked with re-signing the winger, while Spanish outlet SPORT have now reported that Barcelona have entered the race as they look to bolster the options available to Xavi.
Raphinha to fund Sane move?
FootballTransfers understand that Brazilian winger Raphinha could leave Camp Nou next year, with Barcelona placing a €70 million asking price on his head.
The Blaugrana are willing to offload Raphinha in 2024, we understand, with Tottenham Hotspur interested in the idea of bringing him back to the Premier League.
That would open up a space in Barca’s squad for Sane, while Raphinha could help fund a move for the Bayern star, which could prove crucial given the Blaugrana’s well-reported financial issues.
Sane isn’t the only Bayern player that Barcelona are interested in signing either, with his international team-mate Joshua Kimmich also on Xavi’s radar as he looks to sign a new defensive midfielder.
Oriol Romeu joined as Sergio Busquets’ replacement during the summer, but he is not a long-term option at 32 years old.
