Liverpool are interested in signing Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus this summer.
The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield in recent weeks, as Jurgen Klopp searches for Gini Wijnaldum’s replacement.
And now the Reds’ interest in Neuhaus has been confirmed by well-respected BBC journalist Constantin Eckner.
He tweeted: “Florian Neuhaus: Liverpool have been interested in the M’Gladbach midfielder but a decision won’t be made before the end of the Euro, with other midfield options to be evaluated by Jürgen Klopp and his staff.”
Following Wijnaldum’s imminent exit to French giants Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool have been credited with an interest in several midfield replacements.
Despite Mochengladbach having an underwhelming 2020/21 campaign, the Germany international enjoyed a stellar season.
Neuhaus bagged eight goals and provided a further eight assists in all competitions after making 45 appearances for the Bundesliga outfit.
His underlying numbers were equally as impressive, though, highlighting the quality in his overall game.
As per WhoScored, the 6 ft dynamo averaged 52.9 passes per league game last time out, pulled off 1.3 dribbles, and made 1.5 interceptions, seeing him place in the top three amongst his teammates for each metric.
Wijnaldum’s departure will leave big boots to fill, but it appears as though Neuhaus has the potential to do just that, should he make the move.
The youngster is currently representing his country at the European Championship – although he’s yet to make an appearance for Joachim Low’s men – and any decision over his future will have to wait until his participation in the tournament is over.
That means this transfer saga could be dragged out for a little while yet, but Liverpool supporters will at least be pleased to hear that the club’s hierarchy are tracking an array of quality options ahead of a possible transfer over the coming months.
