Premier League teams are apparently showing a lot of interest in signing Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane.
The Germany international played for Manchester City from 2016 to 2020, and he has previously participated in the English Premier League.
With Bayern, however, Sane has elevated his game to a new level. In 159 games in all competitions, he has 48 assists and 47 goals.
The 28-year-old has been Bayern’s main player in 2023–24 apart from Harry Kane, with eight goals and ten assists from 17 Bundesliga starts.
With fewer than 18 months left on his contract, there is now uncertainty over his long-term future at the Allianz Arena.
Though Sane may sign new terms, Bayern knows they will have to make money off of him should he decide not to sign a contract extension before the end of the summer.
Liverpool, Arsenal, and Tottenham Hotspur are all keeping a close eye on any developments regarding the subject, according to Fichajes.
If Bayern recognised the benefit of holding Sane until 2025, they would not entertain any low-ball offers, yet three of the top players in the Premier League saw the potential.
Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, has long been a fan of his countryman and is said to see him as a possible replacement for Mohamed Salah, who is once again drawing attention from the Saudi Pro League.
At a time when Arsenal has sometimes struggled for goals in the final third, Mikel Arteta holds Sane in comparable respect, given that the versatile attacker can fill a variety of positions.
Spurs head coach Ange Postecoglou has shown that having such players at his disposal may succeed even without Kane remaining in North London; Sane is apparently seen as a backup option should Spurs advance to the Champions League.
Much will depend on Sane’s vision for the next stage of his career and if he decides to stay at Bayern until 2025 in order to give himself more choices.
Bayern promised to pay Sane €60 million in 2020, but it’s not clear how much would be needed to get his signature this time.
