Jurgen Klopp Targeting Bundesliga Star For Summer Move
Jurgen Klopp looks to be focusing more on the Summer transfer window rather than the current Winter one, with the Liverpool manager reportedly planning a move for Bayer Leverkusen's Julian Brandt.
The 20-year-old attacker is also, unsurprisingly, wanted by Bayern Munich, who made an approach for him last Summer but were knocked back by the Germany international.
The Liverpool Echo are reporting that the Reds are willing to start the bidding with an offer of £20m, which is expected to be matched by Bayern. Klopp is said to have been an admirer of Brandt's for some time, with Liverpool monitoring the youngster's development over the past year.
Brandt, who arrived at the BayArena in 2014 from Wolfsburg and is contracted to Leverkusen until 2019.
In news that may lend encouragement to Liverpool in their pursuit of the Leverkusen attacker, Brandt recently told Bild "I would not be scared to dismiss Bayern for a second time. The same goes for other clubs too."
