The German youngster has plenty of admirers.
But it would appear they were not alone.
Schalke director Horst Heldt has confirmed that Liverpool made a bid for the player this summer.
The German side’s director is quoted by Bild as stating:
"There was one or more prestigious club that contacted us about Sane.
"Liverpool was ready to pay money for him.
"These offers didn't at all interest us or the player. I am really not concerned about losing the player."
Schalke decided he would be going nowhere and that was that – but it seems that Spurs are still keeping tabs on the player.
It is reported by Der Westen in Germany that Tottenham are continuing to monitor the player this season – as they look to the future with their recruitment policy.
However it would seem that everyone is keen to keep a close eye on Sane, as he continues to prove himself as one of Germany’s hottest talents.
