The Portuguese star has attracted interest from top European clubs after his impressive Euro 2020 performances.

Lille midfielder

Renato Sanches

has been heavily linked with a move away from the Ligue 1 side in recent weeks. The 23-year-old has reportedly been under Barcelona’s radar for a long time. However, the Spanish side might have to compete with


in their efforts to sign the midfielder.

According to


, both Tottenham and Barcelona are closely watching Sanches, who spent a title-winning campaign at Lille last season. Tottenham are keen to bolster their midfield in the summer transfer market as they suffered a lack of depth in their squad last season.

Having spent three difficult seasons at

Bayern Munich

, Sanches finally gave up on his dreams of being a starter at Allianz Arena in 2019. The Portuguese midfielder joined Ligue 1 side Lille, where he managed to regain his best form under Christophe Galtier. After winning the Ligue 1 title with Lille, Sanches was named in Portugal’s squad for the Euros. Despite being benched in his side’s first two games, Sanches managed to find his best form and displayed a spectacular performance in Portugal’s 2-2 draw against France. It remains to be seen whether the Portuguese midfielder, who started his career at Benfica, would be interested in a move away from Lille ahead of the next season.
