Liverpool are looking to reinforce their attacking midfield and the likes of Quincy Promes and Julian Brandt have been linked recently.
Yesterday, Liverpool Echo reported that the Reds have been tracking German international Brandt for quite some time and Klopp is keen to hire his services.
The 20-year-old Bayer Leverkusen starlet is a versatile talent who can play on either flank and also as a secondary striker if needed. This season, in 16 league appearances, Julian has scored 2 goals and provided 6 assists.
As per the provided Liverpool Echo link, the Merseysiders are aware that signing Brandt this month will be hard because the Bundesliga side do not want to sell him in the winter window. Therefore, Liverpool are looking to sign him next summer.
With Sadio Mane on international duty, the Reds should look to splash the cash and sign an attacking midfielder this month, not next summer.
Echo also cite reports in Germany and claim that the Kaiser has a release clause of 17 million pounds in his contract that can be activated in 2018. Moreover, for now he is rated around 20 million pounds.
However, his asking price is completely different as reported by SportBild in their magazine a week ago. The German source mentioned that Bayer Leverkusen want the same fee for Brandt that Schalke got for selling Leroy Sane to Manchester City last summer i.e. 50 million euros ($53million).
