On Friday, Sport1 journalist Florian Plettenburg reported Liverpool have initiated talks with Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Florian Neuhaus.

He then followed it up by stating the Reds are the club that has ‘deposited the most interest’ in the midfielder.

The journalist’s claims of the Merseyside club initiating contact are now backed up by Sky Germany.

Sky transfer expert Max Bielefeld claims “there was definitely an exchange” between the 24-year-old and the English side, but the operation is “not yet concrete”.

Jürgen Klopp and his side saw Georginio Wijnaldum leave Anfield as a free agent and complete a switch to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Premier League side are in the market for a replacement and Sky Germany are of the belief signing the German international ‘would make perfect sense’ for Liverpool.

Neuhaus’ contract with the Bundesliga side expires in 2024 and he’s currently with the national team for Euro 2020. Therefore, the topic around his future should gather pace after the UEFA tournament.

Bayern Munich are also credited with an interest in the player and after denying agreeing a deal with the Bavarian club, he stated the conditions for him to change clubs.

“I’m not committed to one club. The overall package must be right. I’m open to everything,” Neuhaus told Abendzeitung earlier this month.

“I’m a person who likes to dare to do something. I could also imagine foreign countries very well. I don’t necessarily have to go to FC Bayern Munich.”
