Liverpool Lining Up A Move For 22 Y/O German Winger: What Will He Add To Klopp’s Side?

Liverpool are being touted to make a move for Bayer 04 Leverkusen wide man Julian Brandt this summer. According to recent reports, the Reds will launch an official offer for the German international in the hopes of securing his services during this summer transfer window. It is believed that the Merseyside club are weighing up an alternative for Nabil Fekir, whose transfer to Anfield fell through last month, and Brandt fits the bill perfectly.

The German talent is a part of a long list of transfer targets who Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is speculated to be interested in. Since the departure of Phillipe Coutinho in January, the Reds have been on the lookout for a new creative midfielder and some sources have recently claimed that the Merseyside giants are planning to seal a move for the Leverkusen star this summer.

Brandt has been in outstanding form for the German side during the course of last season. His eye-catching displays have not gone unnoticed as Klopp’s team prepare a move to bring him to Anfield. The 22-year-old had featured in 39 matches for Leverkusen last season, scoring 12 goals while creating 7 assists in all competitions.

He is exactly the kind of player who has all the attributes to succeed under the expert guidance of Klopp if Liverpool manages to land the player in the coming weeks. The German has a knack for scoring and creating important goals which will be an ideal asset for the Reds going into the future.

The Reds of Liverpool managed to grind out a 4th placed finish in the English top-flight last season. Jurgen Klopp is now looking for some promising young talents during this ongoing window in an effort to build a strong squad capable of challenging on all fronts in the upcoming campaign.

The addition of Brandt will definitely bolster Klopp’s attacking options at Anfield. Liverpool have some top-class wide men in their ranks such as Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who are all competing for a place in Klopp’s frontline. The potential acquisition of Brandt will undoubtedly improve their squad depth significantly and add more competition for places within the Reds team.

At 22, the German playmaker still has his prime years ahead of him which the Merseyside outfit could look to benefit from, in the coming years. Brandt is also quite versatile and primarily operates on the left wing but can also feature in the number 10 position or down the right flank which makes him a perfect fit for Liverpool. Only time will tell what lies ahead in the future of Brandt and whether he is willing to join Klopp’s revolution at Anfield before the start of the new season.
