Liverpool may not be finished in the transfer window with the club supposedly in hot pursuit of Renato Sanches.
The Bayern Munich star has been strongly linked to the Reds in recent days, with Jurgen Klopp seemingly still on the lookout for further midfield reinforcements.
Sanches has fallen out of favour at the Bundesliga club and tipped to secure a temporary move elsewhere having struggled to make an impact since his move from Benfica last summer, worth upwards of £30million.
Liverpool are now in talks over a deal to sign the 20-year-old, according to Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol.

Sanches was asked to be left out of Bayern Munich’s squad for the team’s recent game against Werder Bremen, reportedly in order to consider his future.
If available, he represents the kind of player equipped to thrive under Klopp and thereby someone many fans will feel the Reds should pounce on.
He not only promises the energy and athleticism, but also the pace and explosive runs capable of making him an ideal fit to the Liverpool manager’s midfield setup and approach.
A move to Anfield could also prove key to unlocking the talent of a young man who starred in Portugal’s winning Euro 2016 campaign, but has since struggled to find his top form.
Adding someone with his quality to a Liverpool team that tore Arsenal apart on Sunday would mark a significant statement late on in the transfer window.
This won’t be the last Reds hear of this deal before Thursday’s deadline.
