Report suggests Arsenal more likely than Liverpool to sign £44m forward who Harry Kane loves

A fresh report has suggested Arsenal as a more likely destination than Liverpool for Bayern Munich star Leroy Sane.

That’s according to The Athletic, which claims that London could be a more likely landing place for Leroy Sane should he return to the Premier League.

Indeed, Mikel Arteta is searching for extra depth on the right-hand side and a player who can come in to compete with Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli.

As for Liverpool, they could face the prospect of losing Mohamed Salah next summer, with Saudi interest expected to be revisited.

Sky Germany reported over the weekend that Jurgen Klopp believes he can tempt the winger to move to Anfield.

Now, it seems that Sane is more likely to head to London should he return to the Premier League.

Report suggests Arsenal more likely than Liverpool to sign Sane

The Athletic reports that while Liverpool have been linked with a move for Sane, it may be that London is the most likely destination for Sane.

It’s noted that while the German winger was spotted in Manchester recently, a move to the English capital could be a ‘trump card’ if one of London’s top clubs make a move, with Arsenal linked.

Sane left Man City to join Bayern Munich back in the summer of 2020 for a fee worth around £44 million.

The 27-year-old is enjoying an exceptional campaign in Germany, having registered 14 goal involvements in 11 Bundesliga appearances.

He’s linked up brilliantly with former Tottenham star Harry Kane, with the duo instantly forming an exciting partnership.

Indeed, Kane has already raved about Sane just months after linking up with the former City winger.

“He has great pace and outstanding power,” he told Der Rekordmeister. “Leroy is probably our best player so far this season.

“He is fantastic. Even today, when it was 2-2, I had the feeling that he was the player who would lift us up again.

“He is such an important player for us with his skills. Today he made two assists for me again, which is great. I hope we keep this connection.” as quoted by GFNG.

It certainly would be a huge surprise to see Sane move back to the Premier League given his recent form for Bayern.

The former City man seems settled in Munich and the Bundesliga giants are prioritising a new deal for the winger.

Nevertheless, he would be an excellent coup for either Arsenal or Liverpool as he’s undoubtedly a world-class talent.
