£4.3m asking price set as Coventry City, Stoke City target 21-year-old star

Coventry City and Stoke City are among the admirers of Lausanne-Sport midfielder Alvyn Sanches, as per a report from The Express.

Coventry City and Stoke City are bound to be in the market for fresh faces this summer as they look to enjoy more fruitful campaigns next time around.

The Sky Blues fell short of the play-offs after last year’s success but their journey to the FA Cup semi-final made this season another memorable one. As for the Potters, they fought relegation for much of the campaign but ended strong and will be determined to kick on.

Business is a must for both, and the Championship duo have a similar target it seems.

As per a report from The Express, Swiss prospect Alvyn Sanches has Coventry City and Stoke City among his admirers heading into the transfer window.

The 21-year-old plays for Lausanne-Sport in his native and also has Celtic on his trail. He is said to be valued at £4.3m and he is expected to depart the club for pastures new for next season.

Clubs in Germany, France and the Netherlands are also interested.

Sanches can play as a central midfielder, attacking midfielder or striker. He notched six goals in 27 games last season and is a regular for Switzerland at youth level.

Who is this?

An early move?

With the report saying Sanches is expected to move on from his club ‘over the coming weeks’, it might not be long before there’s firm moves made in the pursuit of his services.

If Coventry City and Stoke City decide to act on their interest, they could be in for a fight to sign the attack-minded midfielder with Celtic and clubs across Europe also keen on Sanches.

The Sky Blues have shown that they’ve got money to spend in recent transfer windows and that is likely to be the case again. As for Stoke, Schumacher will be hoping he’s backed in his first summer window in charge of the club.

The Potters only embarked on a big rebuild last summer though, so it will be intriguing to see just how much they have to spend this time around.

The midfield ranks

Looking at the squads, there could be space for a player like Sanches at both Coventry City and Stoke City.

Mark Robins looks set to lose Callum O’Hare so bringing in Sanches would offer some fresh attacking threat in the middle of the park. As for the Potters, they do have Bae Jun-ho, but the end of Luke Cundle’s loan and doubts over Daniel Johnson’s future could open the door for an attacking midfielder.

Sanches fits the profile as a versatile midfielder who has been deployed up top and the goal threat he has offered in Switzerland could make him one to watch in the Championship.

It remains to be seen whether the second-tier duo move for him though, with options open for Sanches.
