Plenty of reports have indicated that Bayern Munich have already won the race for Leon Goretzka, but the Mirror reckon Liverpool are still in the race.
The Germans are heavy favourites for Schalke’s 22-year-old, and have been in contact with his representatives over a free transfer in the summer.
But Jurgen Klopp is very keen, and according to the report, still has hope of clinching his signature.
Goretzka is improving on a weekly basis and is a starter for the national team, with the World Cup in Russia looming next summer.
Liverpool are likely to lose Emre Can on a free, and despite Naby Keita’s imminent arrival, we still need midfield enforcements.
For us, Goretzka, would be a very nice surprise, but we’re not holding out much hope…
Bayern have a habit of picking up the best German talent, and despite Klopp’s charm, we don’t think he’ll sign for Liverpool.
In the summer, we’ll need another midfielder, perhaps a holding one.
