Liverpool have held provisional talks with Borussia Monchengladbach over the possibility of a summer move for Florian Neuhaus, according to reports. The 24-year-old midfielder is currently gearing up to represent Germany at Euro 2020, with Joachim Low’s side looking to progress from a stacked Group F that also includes France, Portugal and Hungary.

Jurgen Klopp is reportedly keen on adding reinforcements in the middle of the park ahead of next season, with the departure of Georginio Wijnaldum leaving Liverpool in need of new blood.

The Dutch playmaker has joined Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer after the conclusion of his previous deal at Anfield.

A number of potential targets have been linked with the Reds in recent months, including Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez and Youri Tielemans of Leicester City.

Brighton and Hove Albion’s Yves Bissouma has also been mentioned in connection with a move, but Liverpool have reportedly baulked at the Seagulls’ lucrative asking price, which is believed to be in the region of £50million.

It seems as though the club have already switched their focus to other candidates, with Klopp a keen admirer of Neuhaus, according to Sport1.

It is claimed that the German boss will be keeping a close eye on his compatriot at the Euros as he weighs up the idea of launching a move.

Liverpool are said to have already reached out to Gladbach to establish the likelihood of securing his services this summer, but no concrete offer has been tabled as of yet.

Neuhaus, who remains under contract until the summer of 2024, has also been linked with the likes of Manchester City and Bayern Munich.

The player himself admitted earlier this month that his future is far from certain, suggesting that a move away from Germany could be his best option, but stressed that nothing has been rubber-stamped at present.

“I am not committed,” he told Sport1. “I am a person who likes to dare something. I could very well imagine going abroad.

“I don’t necessarily have to go to Bayern Munich. But I don’t necessarily have to change either, because I’m currently feeling very much at home at Borussia Monchengladbach.

“That is a good feeling and another club must first come across that feeling in the talks. I also read that my move to FC Bayern in 2022 had already been decided. I can clearly deny that here and now.

“I haven’t signed a contract anywhere except with Borussia Monchengladbach. I feel very much at home there at the moment.”

Neuhaus chipped in with 12 goal contributions for Gladbach in the Bundesliga this season, helping the club to an eighth-placed finish in the process.

He rose through the academy ranks at 1860 Munich before sealing his move to Gladbach on a free transfer in 2017.

The club’s sporting director Max Eberl previously suggested that Neuhaus would not be allowed to leave this summer, but it remains to be seen whether his position will change between now and the end of the transfer window.

“If he will leave the club? With the best will in the world, I can’t imagine it,” said Eberl back in February.

“It’s nonsense, very simple. We are always asked who could leave us and it is a bit disrespectful the way we are treated.”
