Liverpool tipped to beat top European clubs to sign Leon Goretzka

Liverpool tipped to beat top European clubs to sign Leon Goretzka”

The 22-year-old German talent hasn't signed a new deal with Schalke, which runs out in June 2018, and Liverpool fans are hopeful that they will be bringing the midfielder to Anfield come the new year.

Liverpool are set for a further addition to their squad come the summer, with reports in the Mirror claiming forward Leon Goretzka wants to join the Reds once he is out of contract.

After landing Virgil van Dijk for £75 million and making the rest of football sit up and take notice, landing Goretzka on a free would certainly help to balance the books for Klopp and his board - and the questions over the future of Philippe Coutinho are still lingering.

The 22-year-old Germany worldwide will enter the final six months of his contract in January 2018.

That could harm Goretzka's career if he decides to move to Liverpool, according to Bild, with the newspaper adding: 'He should keep in mind that you can only become a big player if you have a big title'.

Fellow Premier League side Manchester United along with European giants Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Juventus are all monitoring the highly rated German as he looks set to depart Schalke.

They claim that with the prospect of working under Jurgen Klopp, and alongside both a former team-mate in Joel Matip and a top midfielder in Naby Keita, Goretzka's interest will be piqued.

Liverpool are ready to make the first move, though, and can easily offer a more lucrative contract than has been tabled by Schalke.
