Liverpool’s primary summer transfer target Julian Brandt hasn’t agreed a move to Bayern Munich, despite reports in Bild claiming the contrary.
This is according to Jurgen Brandt, the Bayer Leverkusen starlet’s father .
“It’s a hoax,” he told Kicker, translated by the Metro.
“Julian was never in a situation to have to make a decision. Accordingly he hasn’t decided.’
“There isn’t any trend nor any agreement. Julian will speak to Leverkusen about the season and his future in the summer.”
This means that Liverpool are still in the hunt for the German prodigy, who Jurgen Klopp has earmarked as a potential star.
We currently have an exceptional front-three of Sadio Mane, Coutinho and Roberto Firmino, but very little in terms of backup.
Next year we’ll have European football (hopefully Champions League) to contend with, and seriously need to bolster the squad as a result.
Mane is our only quick wide-man and it’s essential we bring in another this summer.
We coped terribly without the Senegalese during January and sadly will be without him for a while following Saturday’s Merseyside Derby…
The 24-year-old limped off injured and it’s possible we won’t see him again this campaign.
His absence proves how desperately we need a new attacker to support him.
