Now that Georginio Wijnaldum has signed for Paris Saint-Germain and almost officially left Liverpool, the Reds need to replace the Dutchman.
Many names were reported as potential successors, but one is sticking more than others: Florian Neuhaus.
The Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder has been a recurring name alongside Liverpool’s over the past few months, and it appears Jürgen Klopp and co. have started moving to try and secure his services.
Earlier on Friday, we covered information from Sport1 journalist Florian Plettenburg, who explained there had been talks about a move over the ‘past few days’.
Update #Neuhaus (2/2): Among all the teams from the @premierleague, @LFC is currently the club that has deposited its interest most concretely. Neuhaus told us @SPORT1 (last week): „I can very well imagine a move abroad.“ His future will become clear after the Euros. #LFC 🔴

Klopp is said to ‘want’ the German, but in order to get his man, he will have to pay ‘more than €40m’, as Neuhaus doesn’t have a release clause.
Well, there’s a bit of an update now, as it appears the Reds have a fairly clear route to getting their man, as the same Plettenberg reports that ‘among the Premier League teams, Liverpool are currently the club that has deposited its interest most concretely’.
He then reminds his followers that Neuhaus is open to a move abroad, having said that last week in an interview with Sport1.
Either way, nothing will take place during the Euros, with his future becoming clear ‘after’ the competition.
