Midfield target hailed as ‘perfect’ for Reds but CB move in doubt – Liverpool FC Roundup

The rumours keep coming, though now we’re seeing the predictable second wave of summer talk start: rejecting those early rumours and forming new ones. All part of the process!


Liverpool “most interested” in Neuhaus

We’ve been linked with ‘Gladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus for a while now, but the journalist who first clarified the interest from Anfield has now added a little more information.

Florian Plettenberg says the Reds have more apparent interest right now than Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, with €40-45m likely to be the figure which seals any deal – though he also suggests next summer might be more likely.

An explanation of why he’s such a “perfect” player for Jurgen Klopp is also given, along with highlighting the big strengths of the Germany international.

Comparisons with Leon Goretzka are made and Plettenberg is sure Neuhaus will end up at one of the top clubs in world football.
