Liverpool have been linked with German international and Schalke midfielder Leon Goretzka for quite some time and the latest reports are interesting.
Last month, we covered a report (via Don Balon) claiming that Liverpool may even have an agreement with the German international and could settle his signing for a fee under 40 million euros (£36million).
Moreover, the Gambling Times exclusively revealed that Klopp is pressing hard to secure the signature of the versatile midfielder.
The 22-year-old Kaiser will be out of contract next summer and he can agree a pre-contract with any club in January.
Lately, the youngster has opened up about his next move and claimed that he will make a decision next month when the winter transfer window will be open.
Goretzka claimed (Independent):
“I have to find out for myself what the next step should be. I have to consider a million things. I am a person who is very meticulous in such decisions. I play through all the scenarios. So I need time.”
“There doesn’t exist a deadline, but I think we are in the final phase. The final decision will be made in January.”
This season, Leon has so far featured in 11 league games and scored 4 goals for Schalke. Liverpool should act swiftly to sign him because even Manchester United are interested in hiring his services (Sky).
