Liverpool still hopeful to sign 20-year-old German midfielder

By | April 16, 2017

According to the recent reports, Liverpool could still get the signature of Bayer Leverkusen starlet Julian Brandt, as there is no agreement in place for the highly-rated midfielder to move to Bayern Munich in the summer.

The Germany sources have suggested that the deal was in place and that Brandt had turned down several offers from other European clubs, including Liverpool.

The Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is believed to have tried to sign the 20-year-old youngster in the January transfer window and the player’s father insisted the winger was still up for grabs.

During his interview with Kicker, Brandt senior said: ‘It’s a hoax. Julian was never in a situation to have to make a decision. Accordingly he hasn’t decided.’

He added: ‘There isn’t any trend nor any agreement. Julian will speak to Leverkusen about the season and his future in the summer.’

The German prodigy has attracted the attentions of several top clubs across the Europe after three consistent seasons at Bayer Leverkusen.

Despite his tender age, Brandt has supplied 17 goals 20 assists since the 2014/15 season.

Julian’s father, Jurgen has admitted that there was interest from several clubs, but insisted he was the one making the decisions for his son.

‘There have been enquiries from Bayern as well as others — but only to me,’ he said.
