Liverpool keeping tabs with 23-year-old German star

By | February 28, 2021

Florian Neuhaus faces an uncertain future at Borussia Monchengladbach despite his fantastic relationship with sporting director Max Eberl. Florian himself is valued by the club, but with Marco Rose’s future in doubt amid links with Borussia Dortmund, a move away from Borussia Park could be on the horizon for the teenager.

The Merseyside giants are well aware of the fact that a positive season for Germany international in this year’s Euro could skyrocket his valuation. Hence, they are keen on securing an early deal with the German manager seemingly desperate to bolster his options in the middle of the park.

For Liverpool, Florian could be an ideal alternative for Thiago Alcantara and Naby Keita, neither of whom have quite lived up to the expectations since joining from the Bundesliga, although it is still early days for the former.

Known for his technical prowess and tenacity, the German international should tune in well with Klopp’s tactical philosophy.

His ability to create chances, meanwhile, may even make him an upgrade over someone like Oxlade-Chamberlain while providing the depth that could be crucial as the Reds are now likely to consider Fabinho as a centre-back following his fantastic displays this campaign, as covered in our mid-season review for the Reds.

Unfortunately, the Merseyside giants are mere outsiders in pursuit of Florian as the Gladbach midfielder is likely to reunite with Rose at Dortmund next campaign.

Alternatively, Neuhaus could stay at Borussia Park and further hone his skills before sealing an even bigger move to a top team in the summer of 2022. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for this young midfield sensation amid interest from the Reds and others.
