LFC would be crazy not to take advantage of Bayern Munich’s breaking news…

Two positions Liverpool desperately need to enforce this summer are the wing and central midfield.

And in Douglas Costa and Renato Sanches, Bayern Munich have two players very capable of helping us do exactly that.

German publication Kicker (translated by Sky Sports) has claimed that both are for sale, with Carlo Ancelotti happy to offload the pair to any club willing to pay decent asking prices.

Neither have been able to play regularly this term, with Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery preferred in the wide areas, and the likes of Thiago, Xabi Alonso, Josh Kimmich and Arturo Vidal playing more often centrally.

Brazilian Costa has been heavily linked already, liking a number of Twitter posts about his potential Liverpool arrival a few weeks back. His pace, trickery and genius makes him a no-brainer, for us.

Sanches was rated as the world’s best teenager in 2016, but that mantle has been taken by Kylian Mbappe, with the Portuguese unable to replicate his form from the Euros in the Bundesliga.

His talent is outrageous though, and if Bayern are really considering a permanent sale, we should put ourselves at the front of the queue. Sanches has power, technical ability and composure that could see him develop into a world-class operator, most likely from a box-to-box role.
