Jorg Schmadtke’s expertise from the Bundesliga appears to now be paying off, with Liverpool having agreed a medical for Stuttgart sensation Wataru Endo.
Judging by Christian Falk’s latest update on X, it seems that the Reds will be keeping their sights firmly trained on the German top-flight for future transfers, with Ryan Gravenberch still a person of interest and Manu Kone remaining on the periphery.

This follows the addition of Dominik Szoboszlai from RB Leipzig and the potentially impending signing of the aforementioned Japanese international, with Manu Kone also a possible avenue the club could consider if need be.
The young Bayern Munich midfielder appears to be contemplating his future in Bavaria amid concerns over a potential lack of playing time this term.
A fresh start at Liverpool?
Thomas Tuchel’s men have already landed Konrad Laimer on a free and are still keen on adding a No.6 to their squad this summer.
Where that would leave Gravenberch remains to be seen, though his fears do appear to be valid if his minutes accrued in 2022/23 alone are any indication of what he may face this season.
Perhaps a fresh start under a manager who fully believes in him could be just the ticket he needs to revitalise his career.
