Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Renato Sanches from Lille. The 23-year-old midfielder had a decent season for the current Ligue 1 champions.
The Gunners had a terrible season in the Premier League finishing 8th in the table. Additionally, they were also defeated by Europa League winners Villarreal in the semi-finals.
Sanches’ contract expires two years later but a return to England is on the cards. Currently, Arsenal and Liverpool are in the race to sign him.
Arsenal paving a way for return to Premier League for Sanches
Renato Sanches made his senior debut aged 16 years with Portuguese giants, Benfica. After impressing in Portugal, he moved to Bayern Munich in 2016. However, in 2017, he took a strange decision to join struggling Swansea City on loan.
Unfortunately, it was a bad decision and he had a decent season with the Bavarians. Finally, in 2019, he moved to France and now, he has shown his quality by winning Ligue 1. Also, he had been a key player for Portugal national team earning 29 caps and scoring two times.
For Les Dogues, he had made 59 appearances with 5 goals and as many assists. The club marched towards their fourth league title taking the dominance from big spenders, Paris Saint Germain.
The London club have extended the contract for defender Kieran Tierney and now would be focusing on some movement in the transfer market. Sanches’ current market value is around £27 million and they have to make a decision before Liverpool.
However, as per 90min, Arsenal are ready to make their first move towards signing the youngster. In addition to this, he also would be keen on performing well at the most competitive league in the world.
But, things haven’t been so good for his national team as they bow out from Euros 2020. They were defeated 1-0 by World No. 1 Belgium.
