Bayer Leverkusen star makes Liverpool transfer admission and could follow Xabi Alonso

Bayer Leverkusen star makes Liverpool transfer admission and could follow Xabi Alonso

Xabi Alonso has been linked with replacing Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

A Bayer Leverkusen star has responded to rumours linking him with a move to Liverpool alongside manager Xabi Alonso.

Last month, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp announced his decision to leave the club at the end of the 23/24 season.

Klopp said he was ‘running out of energy’ and would not be able to do the job ‘again and again and again’.

Since the news was confirmed, former Reds midfielder Alonso has been tipped to take over at Anfield.

In addition to Alonso, Liverpool have also been linked with Leverkusen full-back Jeremie Frimpong.

The young Dutchman has now responded to reports linking him with a move to Merseyside.

As per Soccer News, Frimpong told Dutch media outlet Ziggo Sport: “Liverpool? Great club, with history. That would be great. Who knows what the future will bring.”

According to Anfield Watch, Liverpool enquired about Leverkusen centre-back Piero Hincapie during the January transfer window but were knocked back by the German club.


Furthermore, Leverkusen midfielder Florian Wirtz has also been linked with the Reds.

Speaking during a press conference, Liverpool CEO Billy Hogan spoke about the process of appointing their new manager.

He said: “I think from our perspective, I don't want to set an expectation because it's a process we will go through.

“The way we operate as a football club is to look at all the information, the data and with due diligence and then make our decision. I can't put a time on it - it will happen behind the scenes. It's not to be a distraction... it's about the campaign continuing and the team continuing to perform.”

Hogan added: “When we have something to say, we will have something to say at that point. [It will be] the same process that brought us Jurgen and that’s something we will do in private, with the people here and ownership. When we get to the place when we have further news then we will share - but it won’t be a running commentary.”
