Liverpool transfer news – Philippe Coutinho claim, Patson Daka deal, Thiago Alcantara dropped
Liverpool could have a big advantage in the race for Neuhaus
Liverpool are monitoring 24-year-old Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus, but it is not yet clear whether they will make a move for him during the summer transfer window, writes Matt Addison.
ECHO understands Liverpool have spotted the player but cannot tap into the market for a midfielder this summer as their priorities may lie elsewhere.
Florian Plettenberg, chief journalist of German media Sport1, told ECHO during a Florian Neuhaus special podcast what Liverpool fans might expect if a move happened – although he also warned that it was more than possible that Neuhaus could stay in Gladbach for another 12 months.
“Klopp has shown he can develop players and I’ve never heard of a player who couldn’t imagine working with him!
“Klopp knows the [agent] de Neuhaus and the [agent] de Neuhaus knows Klopp very well, so this could be the perfect match – he would fit very well.
“If you talk to him, you can see he’s very open-minded. He knows what to do.
“Neuhaus is one of the five best midfielders in the Bundesliga. He has the quality and the talent to make his breakthrough for a top club and he plays consistently.”
