Former Manchester City defender Danny Mills has claimed that Leroy Sane would be a "more realistic" target for Liverpool than Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore.
Sane has not played since the Community Shield against Liverpool in August last year, when he picked up a serious knee ligament injury which has kept him out for the entire 2019-20 campaign so far.
"Adama Traore makes a lot of headlines because of his pace and power but to step into a title-winning side, to replace somebody like Sadio Mane or [Mohamed] Salah – I do not think he is there yet," Mills told Football Insider.
"Somebody like Leroy Sane – possibly. He is coming back from injury and has been linked with a move away recently and could be surplus to requirements.
"He is young, a great talent and has experience. That would be more realistic but I do not know if Manchester City would sell to rivals."
