Liverpool is eyeing a January raid on Schalke as they are keeping tabs on Schalke young attacking midfielder Leroy Sane, according to Mirror.

The 19-year-old has been a sensation for the Bundesliga giants since his breakthrough to the first team. He made his name with a debut Champions League goal against Real Madrid last year.

Mirror also revealed that the Reds made an attempt to bring the youngster to Anfield in summer also but saw a £11million bid rejected by Die Knappen.

Liverpool wanted to get the wonder kid in the summer to bolster their attack after the departure of Raheem sterling but were disappointed not to secure the signature of the German youth international.

Liverpool has secured few attackers this summer, but they are short on wide players with only Jordan Ibe as the only genuine winger.

Meanwhile, Sane has been in sublime form this season scoring three in hi last three Bundesliga games.

Sane signed a two-year contract extension with his current club in the summer to commit his future at Veltins Arena until 2019.

The Schalke wizard has also been linked with Tottenham Hotspur in the summer and they also reportedly had a bid rejected for the young German.

Sane made 13 Bundesliga appearances for Schalke last season, scoring three goals. He is a versatile attacking midfielder who can play further forward or out wide.

Sane’s goals tally and assists tally are very impressive as he scored 14 and assisted 13 goals in all competitions for Schalke so far.

But Schalke will be reluctant to let him go as they already lost their brightest talent Julian Draxler in the summer to Wolfsburg.

Schalke aren’t under any pressure to sell and new coach Andre Breitenreiter has already sought to make a number of young stars – including Sane, Max Meyer, Leon Goretzka and Johannes Geis – the blueprint of his new-look side.

Sane is capped 11 times for Germany under 19 side and once for the under 21 side and has a bright future to his name.
