As things stand, Georginio Wijnaldum will leave Liverpool once his contract at Anfield expires on June 30th.

With no renewal in sight for the Dutchman, the Reds have started scouting the market for a new midfielder.

Two months ago, we relayed news from Germany that Liverpool have emerged as a contender for Florian Neuhaus.

It was also explained the Merseyside club will face competition from Bayern Munich for the Borussia Mönchengladbach player.

Bild on Monday explain the 24-year-old is ‘courted by many top clubs’, including Jürgen Klopp’s side.

The Germany international’s current deal runs down in 2024 and the report explains the midfielder sees his future with Gladbach, at least until the end of the next season.

According to Bild, the only way a sale could be considered in the summer is if the Bundesliga side receive an ‘immoral offer’ well beyond Neuhaus’ €40m release clause.

“We are in contact with all players. Yes, players will leave us after this season. But nobody has to worry that we won’t have a very competitive team again,” Borussia Mönchengladbach director of sports Max Eberl said.

It’s claimed exits for the likes of Marcus Thuram and Denis Zakaria could be on the cards, but that of Neuhaus remains unlikely as he is expected to be the key figure for his club next season.
