Liverpool are set to go all out to sign Leverkusen winger Julian Brandt this summer, as revealed to us by James Pearce in our exclusive interview.
Brandt is “very high on Klopp’s shopping list” as the club seek to give more depth to the currently scarce wide areas of the pitch, with Sadio Mane being so dangerously relied on. Klopp tried to sign Brandt in January however Leverkusen bluntly blocked the move, only willing to consider any deal till the summer.
Brandt is likely to price in the region of £25 million, however Liverpool may face competition for his signature. The German winger is 20 years old and has 87 caps for his club, scoring 17 goals.
Liverpool will be in hot pursuit as the season draws to a close, with Klopp already putting deals in place long before the transfer window opens.
