According to another reputable journalist, Christian Falk, the 24-year-old is believed to be keen on making the switch to Anfield this summer.

Signing a central option to replace the significant void left by Gini Wijnaldum is a crucial element of the Liverpool transfer window.
Given the numerous candidates linked with the role, any decision won’t be an impromptu one as Michael Edwards and Klopp weigh up their options.

Valued at £31.5million and under contract until 2024 at Borussia Park (Transfermarkt), any deal could cost in the region of £40million.
