Liverpool interested in Florian Neuhaus: Liverpool FC are currently in search of a midfielder after Gini Wijnaldum left the club and joined PSG on a free transfer. Yves Bissouma, Youri Tielemans, Houssem Aouar, Lorenzo Pellegrini, Tyler Adams are a few amongst the many midfielders linked with a move to Anfield this summer.
According to the METRO, Liverpool have made contact with Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus. Florian Neuhaus has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich on several occasions within the past twelve months. The 24 year old made a long term deal with The Gladbachs until 2024. The release clause which was set at 40M euros is now expired and the Reds would now be required to engage in negotiations with the Foals to secure his services.
According to Sports1 journalist Florian Plettenberg, Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool want Florian Neuhaus. There is no offer yet but price could reach skies as the Euro progresses. Neuhaus has a good chance to prove himself at big stages and there is a massive opportunity for him to draw attention.
Bayern Munich, Real Madrid , Manchester City have also shown interest in him over the past twelve months but a move there seems unlikely.
“I can’t say what will happen in the summer at the moment. I’m also very relaxed about the future,” the youngster has opined.
Neuhaus has had an impressive career with Gladbach scoring 16 goals in 116 goals. Last season he netted 8 goals and assisted another 8 goals.
What has Florian Neuhaus said about the transfer rumours?
Meanwhile, Florian Neuhaus himself said regarding a move to Bayern he “can clearly deny that here and now”. Last week the 24 year old said , “I am a person who likes to dare something. I could very well imagine going abroad”. However Neuhaus also mentioned that “I don’t necessarily have to change because I am currently feeling very much at home at Borussia Mönchengladbach”.
Despite his success for the Gladbach last season , they ended 8th in the Bundesliga and the midfielder outlined that winning titles will be his priority next season .
“I have big goals- but something was missing. What exactly? A title. I want to win titles in my career, that drives me. A year with a title win, that would really be a dream year”.
Marco Rose also mentioned that Neuhaus is in his plans for the coming season.
Liverpool to monitor Florian Neuhaus’ performance in Euro 2020 closely
Liverpool will closely monitor Florian Neuhaus’ Euro 2020 campaign before finalising his deal at Anfield this summer according to the English outlet The Guardian. If Liverpool want to make any deal with Neuhaus they will have to wait until the EURO 2020 is over.
Neuhaus is not a regular starter for German manager Joachim Low. However, Neuhaus started in Germany’s pre-EURO 2020 friendly against Denmark and he also scored a goal against them leading to a 1-1 draw. With Goretzka a doubt for Germany’s opener against France there is a chance Neuhaus might start for Joachim Low.
The real question about him is whether he can deliver at the highest level as his potential is rarely tested at Gladbach. The 24 year old will need to overcome the likes of Portugal and France(Group F) if they are to reach the knockout stages.
