Target eyed

Liverpool are reportedly eyeing a summer move for Athletic Bilbao midfielder Oihan Sancet. According to Spanish news outlet Fichajes, they ‘could try’ and lure the highly-rated 22-year-old to Anfield at the end of this season.

However, big spending Chelsea have also been mentioned as a potential suitor as they look to continue their fierce recruitment drive, whilst Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are also believed to be in the frame. The former Spain youth international has scored eight goals so far this season in La Liga.

Latest on linked-midfielder

Chelsea’s Mason Mount, who has been linked with a switch to Anfield, is facing an uncertain long-term future at Stamford Bridge. The Daily Mail claim he has ‘rejected’ an offer of a new deal by the Blues as it fell way below what some of his teammates are on.

The England international was at the World Cup earlier this winter in Qatar but hasn’t been able to make a big impact in the Premier League yet this term. His contract situation is something that Liverpool may closely monitor over the next few months.
