Premier League giants Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are battling it out for the signature of Werder Bremen youngster David Philipp. The 17-year-old is one of the hottest prospects in the Bundesliga right now, having been on fiery form in the youth leagues this season.

Werder Bremen is known for nurturing impressive players in their youth ranks, and David Philipp has been the latest to come out of their renowned youth academy this season. The offensive midfielder has taken the A/B-Junioren Bundesliga by storm. Last season, the 17-year-old scored acquired a truly remarkable tally of 18 goals and 21 assists for the Bremen U-17 squad in the B-Junioren Bundesliga Nord/Nordost.

Philipp is currently in his final year of his Bremen contract, which expires next summer, meaning he could leave the club for free next season. Liverpool scouts have been particularly impressed by the growth of the Bremen wunderkind in recent months. And it seems very unlikely that he will extend his contract with the Northern giants, despite Bremen’s initial wish to keep the player.

It became evident after Bremen’s academy director Bjorn Schierenbeck spoke of his transfer speculations.

“I wouldn’t want to rule out the interest in David from the English clubs. But I don’t know exactly how firm it is. We would be very eager to continue working together with David.

“We have already held talks with him, and explained what his future career with Werder can look like.” – he said.

After his promotion to the Bremen U-19s at the start of this season, David Philipp has emerged as one of the most recognized players in the German youth divisions. His composure and control with the ball make him a joy to watch, while he also has the necessary intelligence to thrive in the opposition half. He can be drawn comparisons with a certain Mario Gotze or even Mesut Ozil, considering his skill set on the ball, and his vision to look for the cutting edge pass.

Jurgen Klopp has a vast knowledge of the Bundesliga and the 50-year-old is known for his tendency to give young players a chance. Down the years, Kloppo managed to salvage a lot of young talents and turned them into world-class players. Talk about players like Mario Gotze, Ilkay Gundogan, Lukasz Piszczek, Robert Lewandowski, Mats Hummels, amongst many others. And Philipp’s maturity even at such a young age will make him a real asset in the Liverpool youth.
